Axminster Rider No. 69 1/2 Deluxe Low Angle Block Plane
Axminster Rider
£76.96
The Rider No. 69 1/2 Deluxe Low Angle Block Plane is a hybrid plane incorporating the best attributes of both its parents. It has the low blade angle of the No. 60 1/2 (13.5°), coupled with the size and width of a No. 9 1/2 (41mm(1-5/8")). The blade is used bevel-up. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for home or professional site or bench use. Well made, the Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is ductile iron chosen for its high strength and impact resistance. It has an adjustable mouth for fine or coarser work. The plane features micro depth adjustment and lateral blade control to achieve the thinnest of shavings. The sole is 158mm (6-1/4") long with a 41mm (1.5/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate. A weight of 950g (2lb 1-1/2oz), combined with the blade angle and extra width gives you a plane with outstanding potential. Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade comes honed with a secondary bevel ready to take shavings. Each blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. The No. 69 1/2 Deluxe comes with a plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
Axminster Rider Honing Guide
Axminster Rider
£10.96
The Axminster Rider honing guide is very similar in design to the classic Eclipse 36. It is an ideal tool for achieving a consistent bevel angle, everytime you sharpen a blade. The guide offers two tool-clamping positions. The upper jaw accommodates blades up to 78mm(3-1/8") wide. A lower V-groove secures bevel edge chisels or thin tools from 3mm(1/8") to 48mm(1-7⁄8") wide. The bevel angle depends on the blade's projection in front of the guide. Typically, plane irons in the upper jaw: 50mm(2") gives 25° and 38mm(1-1/2") gives 30°. Chisels or blades placed between the lower jaws: 40mm(1-9/16") for 25° or 30mm(1-3/16") for 30°. We recommend constructing a very simple jig to make setting quick and simple. Using a jig will guarantee consistent bevel angles everytime you sharpen. The guide's 19mm(3/4") diameter by 12mm(1/2") wide roller allows you to hone both straight cutting edges or, by slightly rocking the guide, put a crown on an edge.
Axminster Rider 2-in-1 Plane
Axminster Rider
£63.50
The Rider 2-in-1 plane combines the functions of a bull-nose plane using the small nose section or a chisel plane with the nosepiece removed. Cast from fine grey iron, it is precision machined, precision ground and polished to ensure accurate results. The sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole. The 27mm(1-1/16") full width blade is micro adjustable for precise control of the depth of cut. The blade is a fraction of a smidgen wider than the body making it easier to work into a corner. The polished, arched lever cap makes the plane comfortable and easy to use. A shim between the body and nosepiece allow you to vary the width of the mouth for fine or coarse work. This plane's original intention was for trimming of joints when it came to fine-tuning for the final fit of the joint. A function it ideally fulfils today. Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63, and only requires a little honing before use. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.

Axminster Rider Sharpening Station
Axminster Rider
£54.95
Measuring 250mm (10") x 315mm (12") the Rider Sharpening Board is CNC machined from 13mm (1/2") thick synthetic resin laminate. This is the same material used to produce our kitchen worktop jigs. It is unaffected by oil or water and easy to keep clean. Four rubber feet give stability whilst sharpening and ensure the board will not creep across the bench in use. The stone recess is 228mm (11") x 89mm (3.1/2"), (This matches the Axminster Rider Double Sided Diamond Bench Stone). It is a simple matter to hold shorter stones in place using a homemade wedge or spacer to fill any gap. A stone needs to be just snug enough to prevent movement back and forth as you sharpen. The strop is 203mm (8") x 65mm (2.1/2") quality split grain leather. The strop removes any remaining minute wire edge and puts a final high polish finish on your edge tools. It is a matter of personal preference whether you use it with or without a polishing compound. Designed to work in conjunction with an Axminster Rider Honing Guide it is as effective with similar Eclipse type guides. The edges of the board feature recesses which act as set-up guides for bevel angles of 25°, 30° and 45° for plane irons plus 25° and 30° bevel angles for chisels. This forms a very effect sharpening station with guaranteed repeatability for sharpening or honing angles. Supplied with: Board, Strop, Paste and instructions
Axminster Rider No. 9 1/2 Deluxe Block Plane
Axminster Rider
£76.96
As an example of the No. 9 1/2 pattern standard angle block plane, they don't get much better. This No. 9 1/2 Deluxe has a cast and polished bronze cap, which adds a little more weight behind the cutter. The cap makes the tool feel very good in the hand. The blade is used bevel-up bedded at 20°, giving the plane all-round performance. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for home or professional site or bench use. Well made, the Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is ductile iron chosen for its high strength and impact resistance. It has an adjustable mouth for fine or coarser work. The plane features micro depth adjustment and lateral blade control to achieve the thinnest of shavings. The sole is 155mm (6-1/8") long with a 41mm (1.5/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to +/- 0.04mm (0.0016"). Weighing 1.004kg (2lb 3oz), it is a real workhorse of a plane. Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade comes honed with a secondary bevel ready to take shavings. Each blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. The No. 9 1/2 Deluxe comes with a plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
Axminster Rider Double Sided Diamond Bench Stone
Axminster Rider
£37.96
These 200 x 65mm double sided premium quality diamond stones give two options, just by flipping them over. We tested these extensively, medium 400G (36 micron) on one side and fine 1,000G (15 micron) on the other. Nickel plating permanently fixes the diamond particles onto the 8mm thick steel base. A chequered pattern carries away metal particles so maintaining the stone's cutting efficiency. On first use the diamond surface may seem aggressive, this is the same with all diamond sharpening stones. This is called the break-in period and will have no impact to long term performance. After a few sharpenings the stone will smooth. The resulting surface is more than capable of sharpening modern hard steels, ceramic knives as well as traditional tool steels. A protective non-slip rubber surround keeps the stone in place when in use. You can use it dry but it works far better with a splash of water.

Axminster Rider No. 60 1/2 Deluxe Block Plane
Axminster Rider
£76.96
This is a fine example of the enduringly popular 60 1/2 pattern low angle block plane. This 60 1/2 Deluxe has that little bit extra about it, especially with its polished bronze cap. The blade is used bevel-up bedded at 13.5°, giving great performance especially on end grain and soft woods. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for home or professional site or bench use. Well made, the Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is ductile iron chosen for its high strength and impact resistance. It has an adjustable mouth for fine or coarser work. The plane features micro depth adjustment and lateral blade control to achieve the thinnest of shavings. The sole is 155mm (6-1/8") long with a 35mm (1.1/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to +/- 0.04mm (0.0016"). Weighing only 815g (1lb 13oz), it is almost indispensable for most small trimming tasks. Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade comes honed with a secondary bevel ready to take shavings. Each blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. The No. 60 1/2 Deluxe comes with a plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
Axminster Rider 6 Piece Bevel Edge Chisel Set Hornbeam Handle
Axminster Rider
£85.96
Woodworkers love wood, so we decided to fit our Rider bevel edge chisels with handles made from dense European Hornbeam, chosen for its resilience. Sanded smooth and a light oil finish, the Hornbeam has a superb feel in the hand. The wider chisels have slightly larger handles to maintain balance across the range of sizes. It is a subtle difference, but enough to make each chisel feel 'right' in the hand. Each handle ends in a polished stainless steel ferrule with a shock absorbing leather washer between the handle and the chisel's bolster. The blades are fine-grained, chrome manganese steel, carefully hardened and tempered to 59 HRC. Sharpened and ground with a 25° bevel, the blades require only final honing to achieve a fine, long lasting edge (we suggest a 30° micro-bevel). In cross section, the blades are slimmer than a standard chisel with a narrower land on each side, to a little over 1mm. This allows much improved clearance when working into a corner such as cleaning dovetails. Supplied in a strong wooden case; this 6-piece set comprises the following sizes: 6mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm and 25mm. The blades are approximately 100mm long with the overall length varying between 265mm to 280mm. European made.
Axminster Rider 6-Pocket Chisel Roll
Axminster Rider
£26.99
This Rider chisel roll is soft, high quality suede leather and double stitched throughout. The top and tail design has a couple of major advantages over the usual chisel roll design. Top and tail offers greater protection as the handle of each tool protects the blade of its neighbour. It rolls up into an even and cylindrical shape, becoming a neat package that is much easier to store. The Rider chisel roll is an ideal storage solution for carving tools as well as Rider bevel edge chisels. Each pocket is 125mm deep by 60mm wide. A leather strap and a double D-ring secures the roll while it sits in your toolbox. The overall lay flat size is 325mm wide by 350mm long. For added protection to both the cutting edges of your tools and the leather itself, it is best to use an edge protector on each blade. Please note that while this item will protect from knocks, bumps and scratches, being leather it is not waterproof. We recommend the use of a rust inhibitor or camellia oil to protect against corrosion.

A twin position cutter enhances the versatility of this plane for standard and bull nose work. The blade is adjustable by means of threaded knurled nut, giving precise control to the depth of cut. Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63, and only requires a little honing before use. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality.
