Large Router Plane Blade

Replacement blade for our No. 71 Large Router Plane.

  • 3/8" square tip
  • A2 Tool Steel

Note: Blade does not work in vintage Stanley planes.

Sharpening:

The blade comes ready to use. Additional honing will increase performance.


First, hone the bottom of the blade. Make several passes along a waterstone until a slight burr is formed along the cutting edge.


Then flip the blade over and make a few light passes along the beveled face to remove the burr.

Optional Accessories:

For inlay work using our Small Router Planes, we offer a 3/32" square tipped blade, and 1/4" and 3/32" pointed blades. An optional Blade Adapter allows you to use Small Router Planes blades in the Large Router Planes.

Materials:

The blade is A2 tool steel, hardened and tempered to Rockwell 60-62. Our heat treating technique ensures that the blade will take and hold a very fine edge for a long time.

Maintenance:

Blades should be kept lightly oiled or waxed to prevent rust. We recommend Jojoba Oil, a plant based oil product that is non-toxic, odor-free and easy to use. Also, in our shop, we use a fine abrasive handblock to remove any light surface oxide from tool bodies and blades. Jojoba Oil and abrasive handblocks are available from us.
