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 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. 90 Bullnose Plane
Axminster Rider
£67.00
A close copy of the 1898 original, the Rider No. 90 Bull Nose Plane is carefully ground, finished and polished. The plane's body is fine grey cast iron. A finger recess on both sides and a well-rounded upper section combine to ensure a comfortable grip. Precision ground, the sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole. The 25.4mm(1") full width blade is micro adjustable for precise control of the depth of cut. The blade is half a smidgen wider than the body making it easier to work in corners. The upper section is movable, forwards or backwards varying the width of the mouth for fine or coarse work. Removing the upper section completely, converts the plane into a chisel plane, useful when working on a frame, where the stile and rail rebates meet. A small setscrew inside the front section ensures you retain the original mouth setting after disassembling the plane. 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
£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 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.

Axminster Rider Round Blade Awl with Hornbeam Handle
Axminster Rider
£7.96
Also referred to as a Scratch awl, the business end of the blade tapers to a fine point with a circular cross-section. As the original name suggests, it was used to scratch a mark on the timber's surface. Traditionally a knife would be used for marking across the grain and the scratch awl for marking out along the grain (just as cutting and marking gauges are still used). The blade is hardened and tempered l approximately 100mm long. The scratch awl is suitable for marking a line, guided along a straight edge, on wood or metal. The fine point allows access when marking dovetails and greater accuracy when pricking out measurements or transferring a pattern. The handle is dense European hornbeam, sanded smooth and given a light oil finish. The pear shape sits comfortably in your palm; a small flat on the back prevents the awl from rolling off the bench. Each handle ends in a polished stainless steel ferrule.

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 Square Blade Awl with Hornbeam Handle
Axminster Rider
£7.96
Also referred to as a Birdcage awl, the business end of the blade tapers to a fine point with a square in cross-section. As the original name suggests, it was used in the making of wooden birdcages, employed to make small hole in thin sections without splitting the wood. The Birdcage awl is perfect for making starter holes for screws or nails. The fine point makes accurate placement easy. The sharp edges of the square section sever the wood fibres rather than compressing them. Twisting the awl back and forth reams the hole deepening and enlarging it, until it is the required size. Our Axminster Rider square bladed awl has a handle made from dense European hornbeam, sanded smooth and given a light oil finish. The pear shaped handle sits comfortably in your palm; a small flat on the back prevents the awl from rolling off the bench. Each handle ends in a polished stainless steel ferrule. The blade is hardened and tempered chrome-manganese alloyed steel, and approximately 100mm long, with a maximum width of 5mm.

Axminster Rider No. 80 Scraper Plane
Axminster Rider
£24.96
The Rider No. 80 cabinet scraper produces a clean even finish and is ideal when used to smooth difficult grain over large areas. Tightening the knob, behind the blade, causes a slight bow in the blade. This increases the bite and hence the thickness of shaving. The body of the No. 80 is a fine, grey, iron casting with a flat, machined base. The base measures 90mm(3-1/2") x 68mm(2-5/8"), the blade is 70mm(2-3/4") wide. Checked for consistent quality at Axminster and supplied in an attractive, foam lined, sturdy black box with an instruction booklet. 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.
