Ogee Planes

We are pleased to add ogee planes to our offerings.  An ogee is defined as a double continuous S curve shape.  On our planes, the curve is composed of two arcs of equal size, each being 60 degrees of a circle. The profile starts and ends parallel to the top  surface of the workpiece.  We offer three sizes: The 3/8″ size cuts a profile 3/8″ wide and 1/4″ deep. The 1/2″ size will cut a profile 1/2″ wide and just under 3/8″ deep.    The 3/4″ size cuts a profile 3/4″ wide and 1/2″: deep. All three cut a small fillet (step) at the top.  The three profiles are proportionally equal to each other.

They are made of quarter sawn American beech with the iron bedded at 55°. They have a spring angle of 30°, meaning the plane is held at 30°  from vertical while in use. Spring lines inscribed on the toe of the plane help to visually align the plane at the correct angle. There is both an integral fence and depth stop for ease of use and consistent results. The tapered O-1 tool steel irons are hardened, tempered and sharpened, with each plane having been test cut and ready to go right out of the box.  Price is $275 plus shipping costs.
