Kits for Planes, Spokeshaves and Shoulder Planes
I received my kit on Thursday. After about 5 hours (which included
sharpening the iron) I was finished.
It took me about three small adjustments to the iron, and I was making the nicest 2/1000" shavings I had ever seen.
The quality of the cut is as good or better that my #4 Veritas plane, and the feel of the wood on wood is unbelievable.
I plan to make a few more in the near future. Thanks for a great product. -- RP
NEW! Scraper Plane Kit
These kits are precision-made from bubinga or jatoba (bubinga is now listed as a threatened species by CITES so we're switching to jatoba as the supply dwindles*). The O1 Hock blade is bedded at 95° and hardened to Rc58 for burr "rollability". The parts are taller than our Krenov-style Plane Kit (below) to allow for necessary blade access and a comfortable grip.

Krenov-style Plane Kit
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 or jatoba (bubinga is now listed as a threatened species by CITES so we're switching to jatoba as the supply dwindles*) for the body parts to eliminate the need for an additional sole plate.

Block Plane Kit
We offer a smaller version of our ever-popular Krenov-style wooden plane kit. This handy Block Plane comes with a 1" wide blade, ends up 5 3/4" long and trims down to 5" or less depending on your needs. Isaac made the one pictured here just 3 1/2" long -- a very convenient size for an apron pocket.

Shoulder Plane Kit
Our Shoulder Plane Kit is precision-made from beech and bubinga or jatoba (bubinga is now listed as a threatened species by CITES so we're switching to jatoba as the supply dwindles*) for beauty, performance and durability. This easy-to-assemble kit requires only a drill (for the locator dowels), some glue and clamps, and some fine tuning and shaping to complete. The bevel-down blade is bedded at 37.5° for low-angle end-grain planing of shoulders. Our high-carbon, 3/16" thick x 3/4" wide Tee Blade (#SH075) is included.
A fun, simple and affordable way to add a shoulder plane to your arsenal... er, tool kit.
