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, payment has been sent. I'm looking forward to using another of your great planes. I recently liberated one of your Cooktown Ironwood block planes with tool steel iron from the USA where it had sat unused in its box for a number of years. Showing it to one of my mates I was immediately met with ridicule for buying a wooden plane, which surely couldn't be as good as a steel or iron plane. I then quickly reset the blade and took to a cranky piece of Pink Ivory. So, without a single pass on the honing stone and completely unknown history the little block plane started shaving wispy curls off the 2 x 2 block of wood. One end had some tiny tear out so I reversed the iron and scraped the surface down to a superb burnished finish. I then applied a little Organoil burnishing oil to half of the finished surface and passed it to my sceptical mate who could barely believe his eyes that it hadn't been finished with 1200 grit sandpaper. Mission complete. I can't wait to see how it goes after I give it a sharpen up. So be proud of another great plane and 2 total converts to your excellent tools. I'll certainly be back for more as my miserable service disability pension allows. Who needs food? Regards Geoff Williams
