Kerfing plane Review by TK
Rating
I bought this for the kerfing plane mode.

It does the job nicely, although having used this for some time now, I would say the tool is on the small side. I don't think I have big hands, but I found it awkward to wrap my hands around the handle in any combination of fingers in the handle/out of handle that wouldn't leave some fingers vulnerable to hitting wood when using the tool. So can't work that fast with it and with prolonged use is tiring for the hands. Apart from that, a beautiful tool, with adjustable skate lending to versatility. (Posted on 19/05/2017)
Use as kerfing plane. Review by Bruce

I first tried this accidentally mounting the saw blade the wrong way round. How dull of me! Tried again after reassembling it the right way round, which was quick and easy. Adjusting the fence took a bit more time because of the need for accuracy. ( needed to resaw a piece of wood 1"+ thick to give me a piece 3/8" about 9.5mm). I need better lighting and maybe better glasses.

The wood was quite soft and I made a trial on a cut off. This time the kerf was crisp and straight and made the job of resawing down to 10mm easy. The kerf was a bit wider than my Japanese rip saw, but deeper into the cut, the kerf held the saw straight and firm. A few passes with a smoothing plane brought the trial piece of wood down to 3/8" in no time at all. Excellent! My first attempt at hand resawing a satisfying experience and a success with this tool. Thank you to all at Workshop Heaven.

In future I think I will buy another of these planes and keep one as a permanent kerfing plane and the other as a plough plane. (Posted on 19/01/2017)
