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.

Terry:

The shoulder plane came in yesterday and my son just brought it over.  I've been down in the shop to do a quick ovolo to check out the plane.  
It is just fabulous! Using it for the pre-moulding plane cuts, it works better than a rebate because the lack of extension of the blade beyond the sides of
the mouth completely eliminate any chance of marring the adjacent surface. And unlike my Record shoulder plane, it doesn't weigh a ton and so is a real
pleasure to use. The fineness of the mouth puts the Record to shame! And as with the rest of your planes, it is the most easily adjustable plane with a wedge
that I have ever used.
As another quick note on the shoulder plane:  As I indicated, I have been using it in lieu of a rebate plane for creating the rebates and tracks needed for the
moulding planes to follow.  One thing I didn’t notice right away is that, unlike a traditional shoulder plane (like the Record or Stanley versions or any version with a traditional design), your shoulder plane NEVER clogs the escapement, but beautifully spits out the chips.  As you may know, traditional shoulder planes are difficult to use in lieu of a rebate because they tend to clog the escapement.  Bottom line:  I’ve decided to give up on rebate planes, and will in due course be adding different widths of your should planes to my tool kit.
I'm in heaven! Thanks. Ed Einowski
