SIMPLY AFFORDABLE QUALITY IN HAND CRAFTED AUSTRALIAN TOOLS

Over the past few years we have been designing and making our own HNT Gordon Moving Fillister Plane, and it is now finished! We are now taking orders for the next batch , which will be finished around October. We have Gidgee, Ridged Gidgee, Bull Oak and Ebony to choose from for the body of your plane. The standard
Gidgee price is $1285, Bull Oak and Ringed Gidgee $1535, and Ebony $1585.

Some of its features are:
- Fully adjustable blade, depthstop, nicker and fence.
- Depthstop and fence have mm scale so no ruler is required to set depth and width of fence to make a precise rebate.
- 01 TS blade,  60 degree bed and 20 degree skew.
- Body is 10 1/2" Long and 43mm width of cut.
- Nicker M2 HSS

Our next project will be a plow plane.   Unfortunately I can't give you a time frame for this tool but we are working hard towards getting it made.

Hi Terry,
I would like to give you a return on my experience using your planes on soft pine. They perform extremly well and hold the comparison with Japanese planes and even may have an advantages: they take care of knots as they would of harder wood, and without complaining whatsoever, the plane doesn't chip. I get mirror like finishes on pine as I do with a lower angle kanna (japanese plane). If it came to obtaining the thinnest shaving out of perfectly homogenous Alaskan cedar, maybe a finely tuned Japanese plane would win. But for ease of use, set up, performance, my HNT smoothers, are the one I use most of the time.
The blades on my HNT planes have to be razor sharp though, hairs on forearm should shave with just a slight contact with the blade.
Still impressed, about 8yrs after ordering my first hnt plane!
