In Detail

The Rider No. 80 cabinet scraper produces a clean even finish and is ideal when used to smooth difficult grain over large areas. Tightening the knob, behind the blade, causes a slight bow in the blade. This increases the bite and hence the thickness of shaving. The body of the No. 80 is a fine, grey, iron casting with a flat, machined base. The base measures 90mm(3-1/2") x 68mm(2-5/8"), the blade is 70mm(2-3/4") wide. Checked for consistent quality at Axminster and supplied in an attractive, foam lined, sturdy black box with an instruction booklet.

Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63, and only requires a little honing before use. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.

Not good, not good.

For a full review of this tool please go to this link. It will help you take care of the flaws that render the tool an improbable tool.


Axminster says.

The Rider 80 is a copy of the old Stanley 80 scraper plane.
The blade is thicker to reduce chatter when being used, the angle is ground to 30 degrees. This can be easily be sharpened to a 45 degree angle in the Rider honing guide, although we tend to use a diamond plate. Adding a burr can also be turned on this but this will make the scraper plane more aggressive to use, There appears to be a number of ways to sharpen this type of scraper,

The Blade is not a laminated blade, they are made from high carbon spring steel, hardened to HRC 63 , it allows the burr to be obtained without being too brittle. There is a Video online linked to the product showing the item and a way to sharpen it, and also the following link might prove helpful

Axminster Rider No. 80 Scraper Plane

Previous reviews made me undecided about this purchase. I am an amateur woodworker with no access to knowledge other than the internet but having reviewed the Axminster video and then looked at Paul Sellers video and blog I changed my mind. I am really pleased with this product it works really well once its setup correctly. Based upon what I have seen I am now producing the results that are expected from a correctly functioning No. 80. I have used this on soft and hardwoods and produced impressive (well for me) results. My advice to all potential owners do your research and follow this during setup. To summarise really pleased with this product hence the star marks. I would recommend.

Poorly finished casting and blade. The sole was nowhere near flat and still isn't despite a lot of lapping. Blade bevel is too shallow for a scraper plane and will need regrinding. Save up and buy the Veritas one!
