A close copy of the 1898 original, the Tyzack No. 90 Bull Nose Plane is carefully ground, finished and polished. The plane’s body is fine grey cast iron. A finger recess on both sides and a well-rounded upper section combine to ensure a comfortable grip. Precision ground, the sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole. The 25.4 mm(1") full width blade is micro adjustable for precise control of the depth of cut. The blade is half a smidgen wider than the body making it easier to work in corners.
The upper section is movable, forwards or backwards varying the width of the mouth for fine or coarse work. Removing the upper section completely, converts the plane into a chisel plane, useful when working on a frame, where the stile and rail rebates meet. A small set screw inside the front section ensures you retain the original mouth setting after disassembling the plane.
Tyzack planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63, and only requires honing before use. We are confident that Tyzack planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
