The compass plane kit contains everything necessary to construct a compass plane right along with the Plane Making with John S. Bogdanovich DVD. Kit includes: a beech wood block (8-1/2" x 2-3/8"x 2-1/4") for the body, a hardwood shoe (8-3/4" x 2-5/8" x 1/8"), a hickory cross pin (2-9/16" x 1/2" x 1/2"), a Hock Tools 8" radius blade and breaker (1-1/2" x 3-1/2"), and plans for the plane.The body and shoe are quarter sawn for ultimate stability and the blade and breaker assembly has been custom made for our kits by Ron Hock. These blades and breakers are 3/16" thick to eliminate deflection and chatter. They are made of high quality high carbon steel and will hold an edge longer.The plane is easy to make, a project for all skill levels and can be completed in a weekend. Discover how rewarding it can be to work with a plane that you have created yourself. Compass planes are not readily available in the woodworking tool market place. If you need one, chances are you'll have to make it yourself. If constructed properly the plane will perform as well, if not better, than anything you have ever used.
