Pinnacle matched chip breaker and blade
Turns a mediocre plane into a great plane that is a joy to use. If you pickup an old stanley 4 1/2, 5 1/2, 6 or 7 and put this blade and chip breaker in, it will act the same as any very expensive plane out there (maybe better). Know that the mouth opening will need to be filed to a slightly larger opening which is no big deal. Say goodbye to chatter, there won't be any. I was able to plane figured hard maple which surprised me, just keep the mouth opening so small that it actually looks closed to the naked eye (at least it looked closed to my eyes).Blade measured .144, chip breaker .125
Fantastic. This is the blade to buy!
I restored an ancient Bailey #7 because I liked the heft, tote and the corrugated sole. (Don't get me started on how long it took to lap that huge sole!). I decided not to invest the time in the rusty old blade and chip breaker, and was introduced to these blades by my helpful local Woodcraft guru. Wow, what a great investment. This is the thickest blade I've ever seen. And that goes for the chip breaker as well. In addition to outstanding quality and workmanship they really thought through the details. Because it's so much thicker they added these four little set screws to ensure proper engagement with the adjustment lever. Super sharp out of the package, this set shaves thin or thick without issues. I was warned I might have to file the mouth in the sole of the old #7. With some finicky adjusting of the frog I was able to get some nice thin shavings, but there was no room for Real adjustment so I grabbed my sharpie and rectangular file and enlarged the mouth in the sole as suggested. Took less than 5 minutes and now I've got all the flexibility I want. When I have occasion to replace other plane blades in the future, this is the series I will look for.
does what they say
Works like they said it would. Easy to set up with the video and it works great.
Would buy for some of my other planes
I use it in a #7 plane for truing long straight edges.
Convert those old Stanelys into high end
This product can take a $25 old Stanley plane and turn it into a near Lie-Nielsen plane. For a limited time Rob Cosman's DVD "Rob Cosman The Great Hand Plane Revival" a $32.50 value. While this is expensive it is much less expensive than a high dollar plane and is great for those of us just getting into hand tools.
