2-3/8" (60mm) Quangsheng Cap Iron (chipbreaker) to fit No.4½, No.5½, No.6 , and No.7 bench planes. Supplied complete with cap iron screw to accommodate blades up to 3mm thick.

When trying to improve the performance of bench planes, the chipbreaker is usually the best place to start. This thick, low profile cap iron greatly improves stiffness and reduces vibration compared with the traditional pressed steel design.

Please note that we are unable to ship Quangsheng products to North America due to retail exclusivity restrictions.

    Worthy upgrade but not perfect

    I have bought several of these cap irons to help improve the quality of shavings on my Stanley planes. They are by no means perfect, they will need some fettling to ensure they mate properly with the iron, although this is easily done on a diamond plate. That said, it does improve performance.
