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 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 Out-Cannel Firmer Gouge Wooden Handle - 20mm
Axminster Rider
£21.95
The carpenter's out-cannel firmer gouges have the bevel ground on the outside of the blade. The design makes them particularly suited to hollowing and cutting concave shapes, for example finger pulls or concave recesses. The curved cutting edge makes them useful for roughing out troughs or long rebates across the grain without tearing the grain. They come in handy, when paring convex curves like those found on furniture and other shaped parts. The blades are forged chrome manganese steel alloy, heat-treated to 59 HRC and finely ground. The handles are European hornbeam, chosen for its resilience. Sanded smooth and given a light oil finish, hornbeam has a superb feel in the hand. Each handle ends in a polished stainless steel ferrule with a shock absorbing leather washer between the handle and the gouge's bolster. Blade width is 20mm.

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 Round RASP - 250mm
Axminster Rider
£15.95
For any woodworking or furniture making that involves shaping curved or carved surfaces, a quality rasp is invaluable. When it comes to shaping concave surfaces or enlarging holes this rasp is a must. It allows you to achieve the desired shape quickly, with great control and can leave a surface requiring a minimum of finishing. The blades of the Axminster Rider rasps are high quality tool steel. A CNC machine cuts the teeth (referred to as stitching the teeth). The CNC method ensures precise height and even distribution of the teeth. The result is a rasp that performs in a steady and predictable way, and leaves an even surface finish. After stitching the teeth, the blades undergo controlled hardening to HRC 45, ensuring every rasp has a long working life. The handles are hornbeam with a stainless steel ferrule. The 250mm long round rasp is 10mm diameter, tapering to 6mm at the tip and stitched at 12 teeth per cm². Store your rasp carefully against rust and other tools damaging the teeth accidentally. Think of every tooth as a cutting edge. If clogged, use a small brass brush to remove debris from between the teeth.
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. 92 Shoulder Plane
Axminster Rider
£67.00
The Rider No. 92 shoulder Plane Cast from fine grey iron, is precision machined, precision ground and polished to ensure accurate results. A finger recess on both sides and a well-rounded upper section combine to ensure a comfortable grip. The sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole. The 19mm (3/4") 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 the corner of a shoulder. 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 when reassembling 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 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.
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 Corner Chisel
Axminster Rider
£28.99
The corner chisel is a modern derivative of a wheelwright's Bruzz chisel. The Bruzz chisel did the job of the final cleaning and trimming of the mortices in the wheel's 'knave and fellows' to receive the spoke tenons. The fit had to be very precise or the wheel would fail, so the Bruzz was an important tool. Trimming and final squaring is still the function of the corner chisel. The Rider Corner Chisel has a 10mm square blade with a forged tang and bolster. CNC milling ensures forming of the corner is perfectly accurate. Hardened and tempered with a ground bevel, guarantees a 90° cutting angle. Use the Rider corner chisel to clean the corners of mortices and to trim hinge recesses after using a router. It is useful as a marking out tool, a light tap provides a square cut as a guide for joint corners. When it comes to sharpening and honing, use a square-edged slipstone or, easier still, a diamond hone that allows you to get right into the corner. The handle is dense European Hornbeam chosen for its resilience. Sanded smooth and given a light oil finish, the Hornbeam has a superb feel in the hand. The 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 approximately 120mm long with the overall length 260mm. European made.
