IBC/Cosman Matched Blade & Chipbreaker Set
These matched sets are for your Old Stanley or Record Planes.
IBC (Industrial Blade Company) is a blade manufacturer in Canada. Pinnacle is the brand name that Woodcraft (a huge USA retailer) use on selected goods. IBC make replacement blades for most any plane out there but we have restricted our selection to the matched Chipbreaker and Blade (or iron as we might called it over here in the civilised world).
Revive your antique hand plane with this premium Blade and Chipbreaker Set. This set is over 60% thicker than the original, for reduced vibration and chatter and is matched ground and serialized at the time of manufacture. Exclusively designed Chipbreaker Blade Adjustment Tabs allow this thicker, premium set to function in antique planes. Includes instructions for minor modifications to the planes mouth that may be required to accommodate this blade. Complete information for reviving your hand plane is available on "The Great Hand Plane Revival DVD With Rob Cosman" (sold separately, see below).
