Made from air dried English beech, these rounders, also known as rounding planes, are very useful tools for chairmakers and other woodworkers who need to round dowels, tenons, long handles and the like. Clamp up the piece of wood that is to be rounded, and then rotate the rounder - just as you would a pencil in a sharpener. It works like a charm! The rounder feels great in the hand and its metalwork is all that you would hope for. The blade is correctly curved so that the wood is easily shaved off. Two heavy screws keep the blade rock solid in position, but of course there is enough room to adjust the blade as it wears. According to the maker, Ray Iles, the key is setting the iron so that the finished dowel fits very snugly in the guide hole as it is cut. Almost at squeaking tight, Ray says. The handles are traditionally shaped and are very comfortable. Sharp and ready to use. Comes with instructions. Made in England.
