About Axminster Rider Planes
Each plane has been designed and developed by Axminster. From the handles to the blades, every part has been tried and tested to give you the best performance from your plane.
With every popular style of plane available, each one is made from high quality ductile iron, which possesses high strength, is impact resistant and far less prone to corrosion than ordinary cast grey iron. Even better news is that each blade supplied with the plane comes honed with a secondary bevel, meaning you can start planing straight out of the box!
We are confident that our range of Axminster Rider planes represents a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
Well-made, affordable planes
Axminster Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation, a wipe down to remove the protective coating and checking the set. For an in-depth guide to maintaining, sharpening and adjusting your plane please read our instruction booklet.View instruction booklet
