Quangsheng 2 inch Cap Iron

15.5
2in (50mm) Quangsheng Cap Iron (chipbreaker) to fit No.4 and No.5 bench planes. Supplied complete with cap iron screw to acommodate 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.

Nice improvement on original
Replaced the cap iron on an old Stanley No. 4 I'm fixing up and I'm really happy with how solid the plane feels now, when taking a shaving. Tempted to buy the thicker blade as well but so far it's doing a lovely job with the standard iron. Very happy with the price and how it's improved the plane.

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.

Great upgrade
I have used a couple of these (along with the QS blades) to replace the worn out ones on my Stanley Bailey 4 and 5. They are great quality, one cap iron took some work to get a flush fit to the blade but at this price it was no major flaw. The improvement in cut / reduction in chatter is noticeable.
