Description

In Detail

The No. 62 is a low angle jack plane. First produced in the dim and distant past by Stanley, it was originally intended for use on end grain and stock removal. The Stanley version had its faults though, namely the thin casting and it would have flex terribly. Modern casting methods and design means the Axminster Rider No. 62 will bring you only positive results. The bed angle (12°), bevel-up blade, depth adjustment and adjustable mouth are all features reminiscent of superior block planes. The No. 62 performs exceptionally well when used on a shooting board. The 12° bed combined with a bevel angle of 25° gives you an effective cutting angle of 37°. The chunky blade is 5mm thick and able to slice through timber with ease without fear of chatter. The micro depth adjuster combined with an adjustable mouth gives you complete control to produce the thinnest of shavings and leave the silkiest of surfaces.One of the key features the No. 62 has over other bench planes is the easily adjustable mouth, meaning timber tear can be kept to a minimum. Grinding steeper bevels on the blade gives you the option of using the No. 62 for working difficult grain where tear-out could be a problem.

This Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is a ductile iron alloy, chosen for its high strength and its impact and high corrosion resistant properties. The cap iron and other quality fittings on the planes are solid brass, an ideal material for moving parts. The sole is 350mm (14") long with a 50mm (2") wide, 5mm thick blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to ± 0.04mm (0.0016") , weight 2.24kg (4lbs 15oz).

Rider planes only require the bare minimum of preparation. The blade comes honed with a secondary bevel ready to take shavings. Each blade is oil quenched, high carbon steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. The No. 62 comes with a spare blade, plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard of traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
