    Your MTC Low Angle Plane Kit

    Your MTC Low Angle Plane Kit provides you with all the fundamental hand planes you need to get started with in woodworking.

    A block plane designed for shaving end grain, completing touch-ups and finish work. A smoothing plane perfect for finishing all types of wooden surfaces. And a jack plane for all types of tasks including flattening, dimensioning and edge jointing. All these planes have three different blade types available that makes switching between all their individual applications a breeze. Learn more about each plane by visiting their individual product pages. Welcome to the MTC family.

    An uncomplicated set of planes

    These planes are uncomplicated tools. Their minimalistic designs make it easy to disassemble for maintenance and reassemble for work. The adjustment knobs are accessible and feature a very smooth action. Adjust each planes blades depth of cut and skew easily and securely. Spend more time planing, less time adjusting.

    12 degree bed

    Each plane blade is set bevel-up in the milled plane bed at 12 degrees providing you with a very cool low angle of attack. Choose from a range of blade angles to suit the work at hand. The blades fix down hard down on the plane casting, so blade’s cutting edge is provided with maximum support no matter the terrain. Swap the blades out easily and quickly when you need to change gear. Watch your productivity grow with this versatile set of hand tools.

    3 angled blades available

    Each of these planes are supplied with a blade sharpened to 25 degrees. Along with the 12 degree bed, you now have an effective cutting angle of 37 degrees - perfect for shaving end grain. Also available are blades ground to 38 degrees suitable for smoothing, and 50 degrees for smoothing figured material. Blades are easily swapped in and out of the plane by removing the lever cap. All MTC blades are made from M2 High Speed Steel. Visit the MTC plane blade pages to purchase additional blades.

    M2 High Speed Steel blades

    MTC has chosen M2 High Speed Steel (HSS) for the blades. M2 HSS has high abrasion resistance which means it will hold a sharp edge much longer than many other steels. This also means that it may take a little longer to bring up an edge. Don’t worry, you will be leaving your sharpening gear on the shelf for a lot longer too. MTC plane blades are also thicker than the average plane, this eliminates vibration is the cut, ensuring a smooth uniform finish.

    Adjustable mouths

    All these planes feature an adjustable mouth. Twist the front handle to release the toe. Use the mouth adjustment lever to set the mouth width opening to suit the work at hand. Close the mouth up tight to minimise tear out when working difficult figured materials. Open wide when working more predictable materials and make shavings fast without clogging.
