The No. 60 1/2 is easy and comfortable to use for numerous trimming and fitting tasks. This low angle block plane has its blade seated at an angle of 13.5°, making it particularly useful for end grain work and equally as effective for general usage.
The Rider version of the 60 1/2 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(1.1/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to +/- 0.04 mm (0.0016"). At 800g (1-3/4lb), its lightweight and small size make it very manageable.
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. Rider planes represent a good standard and great value, suitable for home or professional use on the bench or on site.
