“I have seldom had experience with a company with such careful attention to customer satisfaction. Although I am sure my orders are smaller than most, your products have been of the highest quality and your responsiveness to my special requests have always been treated with respect and timeliness. My thanks to all of your staff."
This silicon-bronze plane designed by the late Richard Schneider is ideal for brace shaving. With a slightly concave sole and extra wide mouth (almost works like a rabbeting plane) shaving the sides of bracing already installed, and tapering the ends of bracing is a breeze. The bottom is ground into a curve longitudinally, making it an ideal tool to shape the top of fan bars. Because the sides are ground tight to the protruding blade, it's possible to carve the sides of the fan bars almost down to the surface of the soundboard.
Periodically we have some 2nd grade planes with small visual defects that will not affect the use of the plane. See representative photo
