Lie-Nielsen Planemakers Floats

Floats are traditional tools used to cut, flatten, and smooth (or float) the critical surfaces of a wooden plane, such as the bedding of the blade, the mouth, and the wedge abutment. They are capable of extremely precise work.

Typically floats have been craftsman-made. Lie-Nielsen Toolworks in Maine USA have collaborated with contemporary wooden plane makers Clark & Williams to develop these floats and Classic Hand Tools are very pleased to make them available in the UK & Europe.

These floats are made from S-7 tool steel, hardened and tempered to RC 50-52 for edge life and resharpening ability. 8tpi, 80° rake angle, maple handles.
