Tapered Plane Irons Pricing

Hi Folks
I've had a lot of interest in the Tapered irons mentioned in the last entry so have added a page to the Philly Planes website with more information and pricing details. Email me if you are interested - I can make them in pretty much any size!

Tapered Irons!

Hi Folks
Here at the workshop I get asked a lot about tapered irons. It's pretty much impossible to buy a new iron suitable for a bench plane that is tapered like the old ones. So we've bit the bullet and purchased the necessary equipment and after a certain amount of experimentation we are now happy to offer for sale our very own "Tapered Plane Irons".

They are made from O1 high carbon steel (as are all our irons) and are available initially in 40mm and 50mm widths (approximately 1 1/2" and 2"). They come ground with a 25 degree primary bevel and are surface ground to a fine finish.

We can also taper grind irons for moulding planes and rebates - just send us an email with your requirements at phillyplanes@gmail.com
