In Detail

The No. 9 1/2 Standard Angle Block Plane has its blade seated at an angle of 20°. The blade is used bevel-up giving an ideal cutting angle of 45, good for all sorts of planing jobs. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for home or professional site or bench use. The No. 9 1/2 is easy and comfortable to use, the well-rounded cap fits nicely in your hand.

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 155mm (6-1/8") long with a 41mm (1.5/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to +/- 0.04mm (0.0016"). Weighing only 950g (2lb), it is one of the most useful planes in the woodworker’s armoury.

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. 9 1/2 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.

all in all a good little plane with one drawback

i've been using one of these for a few months now, and i'm quite happy with it. it required almost no fettling before use, apart from a bit of honing and stropping. everything on it works just fine. the sole is flat and the top of the 'frog' under the iron is also quite smooth and flat

it has one drawback which i'm getting used to: advancing the blade seems to skew it so the right side (seen from above) takes a deeper cut than the left. it's a minor irritant which i can live with - at this price! 8/10 - good value
