Features & Benefits

Uncomplicated planes

Both of the Small and Large Router Planes are a versatile yet uncomplicated tool. The minimalistic design makes it easy to disassemble for maintenance and reassemble for work. The knurled fixing knobs are very accessible with a smooth action.

50-degree straight blades

MTC Router Planes are a unique. Unlike many other router planes, the blade is made from a straight square section of HSS steel set bevel-down in the plane at 50 degrees - the blade bevel is only present to relieve the cut. This provides you with a very effective angle of attack suitable for all types of trenching work, and a router plane that is extremely easy to sharpen. The large router plane comes with a 1/2" blade and the small router planes comes with a 1/4" blade.

Large Router Plane Easy Fence Adjust

The Large Router Plane includes a fence with an innovative positioning mechanism that can be accessed from above the tool, so you can make fine adjustments while the plane is in situ. The fence can be installed on either side of the plane, and the same installation holes can be used for attaching a softer sole to protect delicate workpieces.

M2 High Speed Steel blades

MTC has chosen M2 High Speed Steel (HSS) blades. M2 HSS has high abrasion resistance which means it will hold a sharp edge much longer than many other steels. This also means that it may take a little longer to bring up an edge. Don’t worry, you will be leaving your sharpening gear on the shelf for a lot longer too.
