Router Plane Blade Suits Large Size (METRIC)
50-degree straight blades
The MTC Large Router Plane is a unique router plane. 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.
Easy to sharpen
Because the blades are made from a single piece of straight steel, the blades are very easy to sharpen. Simply remove the blade from the plane body, sharpen like you would a mortise chisel and then reset. No special jigs or equipment required! Watch your productivity grow with this versatile hand tool.
A range of blade widths
The MTC Large Router Plane is supplied with a 1/2in (12.7mm) wide blade. Additional blades are available in a range of widths both Metric and Imperial.
Metric blades available include these widths:
M2 High Speed Steel blades
MTC has chosen M2 High Speed Steel (HSS) for the 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.
