Arbortech's Turbo Plane is a really powerful, accurate Angle Grinder Planing Blade.
The Arbortech Turbo Plane is a universal wood shaping blade that can be used to create different shapes, profiles and finishes. Once you get the hang of it, it's just a breeze. We've found the key to be resting the guard on your work surface at the right angle because as long as you have the right control it is so easy and so quick, you'll understand why so many woodworker's swear by it.
Angle grinding planer attachments that you can actually use for finer work are a bit of an epithet in the woodworking industry, but in a true-blue Australian engineering form we've found one that surprised us and is now one of our favourite carving tools.
How to use the Turbo Plane and what is it used for?
The Turbo Plane can be used flat to create large level surfaces or used at angles to provide shallow cuts for fine shaping, planing and sculpting. Each blade is specially manufactured from really high-quality steel and then heat treated to ensure that it lasts forever, with longer-spells between replacement due to their extra sharp blade edges saving you a lot of money and hassle in the long run.
It perfectly compliments the Arbortech Power Carver because of the power the grinder can produce, meaning you can take out a lot of material with each pass, without sacrificing accuracy and that oh-so-desirable freehand control. These are easy to use, reliable, well-made and long-lasting: the quadruple threat of woodworking attachments.
Turbo Plane Features
- Wide cutting edge per tooth leaves a smooth finish requiring minimal sanding.
- Durable carbide teeth ensuring long blade life even in hardwoods; easy to sharpen.
- Excellent control, balance and safety (no cutting teeth on blade perimeter).
Arbortech's Turbo Planing Blade's Best Uses
We've found the Turbo Plane ideal for freehand power carving in hardwood and softwood, rapid sculpting, planning and trimming and using on flat surfaces - it creates level surfaces or edging. But it's also fantastic for using on an angle, they've designed it so it's ideal for free formed convex and concave shapes.
