PLANE IRON ASSEMBLIES

NOTE: Now available in longer, 4½" length! (Photos to come)

These blades were developed in collaboration with the faculty and staff at James Krenov's Fine-Woodworking studio here in Fort Bragg. 3/16" thick, they won't deflect or chatter under the toughest use. Designed specifically for the finely-tuned handmade wooden plane, these irons are un-beatable. Bevel is 30°. They come complete with chip-breaker and assembly screw. High carbon steel.

Our precision made kit provides a quick, sure way to realize the satisfaction of using a handmade wooden plane. Complete with a HOCK PLANE-IRON ASSEMBLY all you need is a drill, some clamps, glue, a knife to adjust the throat, sandpaper (or plane) to true the sole, and a means of sharpening the iron. A HOCK kit is ideal for the novice as well as the professional woodworker who can't find the time to make a plane (or another one or two...) Our design is a basic Krenov-style, flat-bottom wooden plane -- simple and elegant. We accurately mill bubinga for the body parts to eliminate the need for an additional sole plate.
