SKU: BRI-506557 | Axminster Rider No. 69 1/2 Deluxe Low Angle Block Plane

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.
