Working with hand tools is one of the great pleasures of woodworking. And to do this well, you need good tools. Melbourne Tool Company offers tools that are genuine, accurate and accessible, tools designed for the woodworker in you.

50-degree straight blades

The MTC Large Router Plane is a unique router plane. Unlike many other router planes, the blade is made from a straight square section of HSS steel set bevel-down in the plane at 50 degrees - the blade bevel is only present to relieve the cut. This provides you with a very effective angle of attack suitable for all types of trenching work, and a router plane that is extremely easy to sharpen.

Easy to sharpen

Because the blades are made from a single piece of straight steel, the blades are very easy to sharpen. Simply remove the blade from the plane body, sharpen like you would a mortise chisel and then reset. No special jigs or equipment required! Watch your productivity grow with this versatile hand tool.

A range of blade widths

The MTC Large Router Plane is supplied with a 1/2in (12.7mm) wide blade. Additional blades are available in a range of widths both Metric and Imperial.

Imperial blades available include these widths:

  • 1/8in
  • 3/16in
  • 1/4in
  • 5/16
  • 3/8in
  • 1/2in

M2 High Speed Steel blades

MTC has chosen M2 High Speed Steel (HSS) for the blades. M2 HSS has high abrasion resistance which means it will hold a sharp edge much longer than many other steels. This also means that it may take a little longer to bring up an edge. Don’t worry, you will be leaving your sharpening gear on the shelf for a lot longer too.
