Axminster Rider No. 4 Smoothing Hand Plane

SKU: BRI-107333 | Axminster Rider No. 4 Smoothing Hand Plane

The No.4 smoother is a good first plane for those new to woodworking. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for professional, site or bench use. A No.4 is a handy size and weight for finishing and final smoothing as well a general-purpose plane.

The main casting is ductile iron chosen for its high strength and impact resistance. The plane has an adjustable frog, depth and lateral blade control and hardwood handles. The cap iron and other quality fittings on the planes are solid brass, an ideal material for these moving parts.

The sole is 245mm(9-1/2") long with a 50mm(2") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate.

Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. 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. We are confident that Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
