Over the the past few years I have been asked many times why we don't make low bed angle bench planes and sell them
with a range of blades sharpened with various angles like other manufacturers were offering. One person made the point
that he would rather buy Australian made tools if possible.
I have also been asked numerous times by people with Low angle BU planes with a blade sharpened at 50 degrees as to
why they are having problems planing Aussie hard woods. Although a low angle bevel up plane sharpened at 50
degrees achieves a similar blade pitch to a bevel down HNT Gordon plane, there are unique differences that affect
the performance of the plane. So I have decided to do this video to explain why HNT Gordon Planes doesn't make these sort
of bench planes. Woodworkers can then make a judgement for themselves on the merits of these and other types of planes.
