Planner blades are that which are suitable for portable electric planers. High-speed steel material, which can offer a long use life. Planer blades must be securely clamped so they cannot work loose during use.
The cutter is guided by a large, flat sole on a plane to remove only the highest parts of an imperfect surface until the surface is flat and smooth after several passes. Using a planner for power. Like a hand plane, the power hand plane runs on a shoe or on a single plate.
- Smoothing Planes: Often the last planes used on a wood surface. Capable of producing a finish as good as or better than that left by the sandpaper. It also works well for trimming parts.
- Jack Planes: “Jack of all trades” – often used to flatten rough stock and bring it closer to final size. It also can be useful for smoothing and jointing, depending on the workpiece size.
- Jointer Planes: Long sole spans high spots on the uneven stock to trim off peaks and gradually flatten workpiece.
- Block Planes: Versatile and typically small enough to be used with one hand. Great for smoothing mill marks, chamfering sharp edges, truing up miters and trimming doors to fit.
- Shoulder Planes: A cutter that spans the full width of the tool makes it perfect for trimming the shoulders and faces of tenons and rabbets.
- Spoke Shaves: Ideal for shaping curved sections of chair spindles, cabriole legs and more.
- Scrapers: Tools that root out glue, pencil markings and rough grain allowing you to achieve smoothness.
- Replacement Parts: Protective storage socks, replacement chip breakers, and new blades – everything you need to keep your hand planes looking and performing as good as new.
- Specialty Planes: Specialty planes are designed to do singular tasks with incredible efficiency
