Floats were originally used by planemakers and gunsmiths for fine tuning very accurate flat internal surfaces and slots.

This set contains:

  • The IW-100CPEDEF is 100mm long float with extra fine, chemically polished teeth on the edge and safe faces. Because the teeth run right up to the corners, you can extend a slot or groove without damaging the surface you are referencing off.
  • Usually used in conjunction with the IW-100CPSDEF which has a toothed face and safe edges for refining and adjusting the faces of slots.

Regular price of these floats if purchased separately: £107.50

    For precision inletting

    Posted by Stephen on 29th Aug 2021

    These floats are designed for fettling the seating of iron & wedge in Japanese planes - I find them invaluable for all kinds on precise inletting: very accurate & very sharp. Only caution might be re: storage - they need to be kept dry & well away from any other hardened steel.
