At 22 inches the No. 7 try plane is the longest of the general use handplanes. It is four and a half inches longer than a No.6 and about 400g heavier. Excellent for jointing the edges of boards.

The long soles of fore planes and try planes ride over the perpendicular or diagonal furrows left after jack planing (or on a smaller scale those left by the planer thicknesser). They span the low spots and nip off the crests to bring the surface into true - hence the name 'try', 'trying' or 'truing' plane.

Quangsheng bedrock pattern handplanes, unlike the more common Bailey pattern, have a full contact area between the body and the frog. The frog can also be adjusted to widen or narrow the mouth of the plane without the need to remove the irons. Simply loosen the two locking screws on either side at the back of the frog, adjust the central screw to set your desired mouth opening and then nip up the side screws again. This system is easier, faster, much more accurate, and less likely to damage the cutting edge.

Specifications:

  • Precision ground, unbreakable CR40 alloy steel casting.
  • Engineered lateral adjuster with guide bearing and brass tab.
  • Low profile cap iron.
  • Brushed finish stainless steel lever cap.
  • Hardwood handles.
  • Conforms to British Standard.
  • 1/8in (3mm) thick 2-3/8in (60.3mm) cutting iron made from T10 carbon steel hardened to RC63.
