One of the most useful planes

All Rider planes are suitable for home or professional site or bench use

For more accurate work, block planes can be used two handed

A block plane is generally used one handed. The cap iron has a smoothed, domed profile so that it sits comfortably in the palm of the hand. However, for more accurate and precise work block planes can be used two handed. You can work on fitting drawers, chamfers, trimming and fitting mouldings, and small smoothing operations.

The blade angle and effective pitch

The No.60½ is referred to as a ‘low angle’ block, where the blade is seated at 13½°. Block plane blades are always placed bevel up on the bed. To find the ‘effective pitch’ (the angle at which the blade edge meets the timber), the honed angle (usually 30°) must be added to the bed angle. In a ‘low angle’ block plane the effective pitch is 13½°+30° = 43½°. This is almost the same as a bevel down configuration of a standard bench plane.

Bronze cap iron

Apart from its undoubted dazzle, the bronze cap iron does have one or two practical advantages over those without. Firstly, from an ergonomic viewpoint, there’s more of a pronounced dome to its shape. This means that it tends to sit more comfortably in the palm of the hand. Secondly, it has comparatively more mass. This results in a little more ‘heft’ when picked up and applied to the timber.

Adjustable mouth

The adjustable mouth allows for both fine and coarse work to be carried out.

This is a fine example of the popular 60 1/2 pattern low angle block plane. This 60 1/2 Deluxe has that little bit extra about it, especially with its polished bronze cap. The blade is used bevel-up bedded at 13.5°, giving great performance especially on end grain and soft woods. 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 155 mm (6-1/8") long with a 35 mm (1.3/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to +/- 0.04 mm (0.0016"). Weighing only 815g (1lb 13oz), it is almost indispensable for most small trimming tasks.

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.We are confident that Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
