Large Router Planes
Our router planes are loosely based on Stanley models, but many revisions of router planes have been made over the years. All derive from the traditional, wood-bodied routers often referred to as the old woman’s tooth.
The blade comes ready to use. Slight additional honing will increase performance.
Advance the depth of cut as you work. Loosen the lock screw and advance the blade with the adjuster nut. Take as thick a shaving as you comfortably can.
To cut to a specific depth use the depth stop. Set the blade to the finish depth, set the stop all the way down, tighten the thumbscrew on the stop. Then raise the blade to take your first shaving. Advance the depth of cut until the depth stop prevents you from going deeper. To easily set the blade depth stop, shim the tool on your bench with shims of the desired thickness. Advance the blade until it touches the bench. Lock the stop in the down position.
Router Planes Fences:
Use the fence to guide the tool along an edge- the concave end of the fence is for curved work.
Accessories:Additional blades for our Small Router Plane are available and can be used in the Large Router Plane with the Router Plane Blade Adapter.
