Planer Blade Vernier Setting Jig A pair of adjustable jigs for accurately setting up your planer blades within their block. With a lockable vernier setting and magnetic feet, all the blades in the cutting block can be set accurately to the same height. This is most important to give a clean finish to your work. The feet are magnetic and swivel to accommodate different diameters of cutter blocks, whilst the knife itself is held in place by another magnet. The beauty of these jigs is that the blade is held by the magnets allowing you to set the height and secure the blade in one operation. Then you can repeat the process for each blade, keeping the same setting each time. If you are using these jigs on a surface planer or planer/thicknesser, you can set the blades to the outfeed table and keep the jig settings for accurate repeat settings each time the blades are sharpened or replaced. Keep the jigs safe in the supplied wooden box. Please note, these are made by the original design manufacturer and so are the best quality vernier setting jigs available.

Straight Timber

Axminster Diamond Planer Blade Hone The easiest way to keep your planer knives in good condition without removing them from the machine. The diamond hone consists of two diamond slips, 325 and 600 mesh, held at an angle in a wooden handle for topping and backing the blade. Applying the diamond to the edge of the blade and moving it along the length with a uniform pressure should restore the blades to their former glory. Please note, these are for honing the blades, they will not restore chipped or very dull blades. Suitable for HSS or TCT edged blades.

Twisted Timber

Aluminium Winding Sticks Winding sticks are not new; woodworkers have been making them for years from scrap wood and using them to check the flatness of material. Placed at opposite ends of a board, they accentuate any twist (wind), making it easier to identify and correct. With the sticks in place, sight across their top edges; If their edges are parallel, the board is not twisted. Reposition and repeat to check the entire board. Unlike their wooden cousins, our extruded aluminium sticks will remain dimensionally stable and straight. The satin black anodised finish on one side reduces glare, and the machined section on the other side provides contrast when sighting. The machined grooves are spaced 3mm apart to help estimate the amount of twist and how much stock to remove. The two 457mm long sticks nest together and have hanging holes for easy storage.

For sheet materials the integral ball attachment can be slipped in place to provide support for any type of board material. Maximum weight limit is 60kg.
