Description

The wood is Afzelia Quanzensis also known in the trade as Chamfuta or Pod Mahogany. It comes from Southern Africa particularly Angola, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. It is known for extreme stability.

The blade steel is oil hardened tool steel i.e O1 and the heat treatment is done by Heat Treatments Company in Auckland who do aircraft grade work for this part of the Pacific.

This finger plane is designed to be easy to use and very portable which makes it useful for fine woodworkers/furniture and instrument makers.

The blade is ground at 25° and it may be honed at that angle plus a bit or at no more than 30°. 

It is easy to set: Just place the finger plane on a flat surface (ideally wood), then loose the cap screw, push the blade down and re-tight the cap screw again. The finger plane is ready to use.

*Make sure to not loose the cap screw while holding the plane, otherwise the blade will slide through and fall.
