Quangsheng Small Router Plane

The router plane gives us the ability to register off one surface and create another accurately parallel surface a given distance below it.

In the woodworker’s workshop, a router plane is a really useful tool to have for cleaning up the bottom of housings and trenches or truing and levelling tenon cheeks with remarkable accuracy and without clouds of airborne dust.

This small router plane from Quangsheng has a cast stainless steel body, so it won’t rust. It is broad enough to give support on a trench up to 40mm wide and the open design offers excellent visibility and shaving clearance.

The hardwood handles give a little more purchase when pivoting the router for chommelling out material and a broad, low-profile brass knob makes adjustment quick and easy without restricting your view of the cutter.

The sides of the main cutter are beveled to the full depth, so you can get under the shoulders of sliding dovetails, tapered dovetails or even half blind and secret mitred dovetails.

A 6mm V point cutter gets right into internal corners and two tiny 2.5mm versions are ideal for fiddly purfling and inlays.

Specifications:

  • Stainless steel casting
  • Sole dimensions 100mm x 50mm

 

    Cutter widths:

    • 12mm straight with side bevels
    • 6mm V point
    • 2.5mm straight
    • 2.5mm V point

 

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

Most impressive and compact tool.
I received this router plane with little expectancy as i own the large Veritas model and almost snobbishly dismissed Quangsheng as a lesser quality tool manufacturer. I am so pleased to be so wrong. I was so impressed I packaged it up and took it to the workshop for some validation. Its the crispness of the cuts straight out of the box and the 1 screw adjustment feature that make it my new "go to" tool for all of those hard to reach corners. Another small but significant design feature is the hex screw in the totes, you can remove the screw and either replace with your own unique design or if you are unfortunate enough to drop it, you can likewise replace the tote after 10 mins on a lathe.

In summary, a most impressive and compact tool. Complete with 4 blades, this has raised my opinion of Quangsheng as an upcoming competitor for joinery planes in what is usually a set priced high end market. Affordable enough to buy without much deliberation, very well priced considering.
