Small Router Plane Blades

For use in our No. 271 Small Router Planes. Made from O1 Tool Steel. The Small Router Plane comes with a 1/4" wide square tip blade.

Three specialty blades designed for inlay work are also available:

  • 1/4" Pointed Tip
  • 3/32" Pointed Tip
  • 3/32" Square Tip

Note: Blades do not work in vintage Stanley planes.

Sharpening:

The blade comes ready to use. Slight 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 O1 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.
