The Rider No. 69 1/2 Deluxe Low Angle Block Plane is a hybrid plane incorporating the best attributes of both its parents. It has the low blade angle of the No. 60 1/2 (13.5°), coupled with the size and width of a No. 9 1/2 (41mm(1-5/8")). The blade is used bevel-up. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for home or professional site or bench use.
Well made, the Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is ductile iron chosen for its high strength and impact resistance. It has an adjustable mouth for fine or coarser work. The plane features micro depth adjustment and lateral blade control to achieve the thinnest of shavings.
The sole is 158mm (6-1/4") long with a 41mm (1.5/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to +/- 0.04mm (0.0016"). A weight of 950g (2lb 1-1/2oz), combined with the blade angle and extra width gives you a plane with outstanding potential.
Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade comes honed with a secondary bevel ready to take shavings. Each blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63.
Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. The No. 69 1/2 Deluxe comes with a plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.

Good valueThe plane looks very good but can't be used straight out of the box. I spend 1 1/2 hours fine tuning here there. Honestly the blade is excellent 5*. For it's price I didn't expect to be perfect. After few hours spend on YouTube,I realised that even more expensive planes need some attention. Overall I am VERY happy with this low angle plane. Thanks to Axminster for the fast delivery.

amazing valueAfter returning a irwin plane for a similar cost at screwfix as it was junk I headed to axminster to check out the veritas and Lee Neilsen block planes after testing a few high end planes I decided to try a rider and I couldn't believe the performance and the quality for the price I couldn't justify the extra for the veritas block plane as this plane is great it looks great and works so well this is a great plane and I'd recommend it to anyone seriously try it its a quality tool so happy with mine

Not so deluxe.Functionally, it's good for the price which I suppose is the most important part. But, the finish is quite terrible! Mine has a blob of levfover material on it from when it was cast and the edges are scratched and Rough.

A plane plane that planes wellCompared to a three times more expensive block plane, this one has a bit more slack in its depth adjustment, lacks screws fixating the lateral position of the blade, and is not as extensively finished. It is no less flat, just as sharp, and almost as easy to adjust. Cross grain this plane works very well, without much of splintering or in any other way being inferior to the more expensive one.
