Schtickle Ray Iles Plane Iron RI031 2 inch D2

End of line product. Was 37.20


3mm thick 2" D2 plane iron to fit Stanley No.4 and 5 Bailey or Bedrock, Record No.04 and 05, and equivalents.

D2 is a high-carbon, high chromium, molybdenum vanadium steel (think A2 only more so). It is the opposite end of the spectrum from pure carbon steels, it won't take a fine edge and is a pest to hone on anything but diamond stones. On the plus side it has massive wear resistance so if you are using a jack for its original intended purpose (rough stock removal across the grain) or using a 4 a D2 iron makes a lot of sense.

Planes that originally had thinner irons may need the mouth opening slightly with a file.
