simple and elegant
This plane is perfect for removing the sharp edge from a corner. Adjustment is simple once you figure it out. (If you don't quite get it, remove one of the blades and it will become clear.) Spend the time to get the blades correctly set- the edges will be barely visible when you look down the length of the inside of the brass base plate, Have plenty of sharp-edged scraps for testing. The result will be a smooth, round edge when the plane is run firmly but lightly over your rough edges.

My Second One
This is a great device for removing a straight edge on lumber, especially if it is not too soft.

Great Small Job Tool
I just used my Carbide - Tipped Radius Plane on a small writing desk I constructed. The plane was used to round off all edges and corners. After playing with the edges, lowered, raised and centered until just right, it worked perfectly. It is ideal for small jobs as this. Perfect smooth corners and no sharp edges. Look forward to my next job.

Did the job on pine and oak flooring
Don't know how long cutters will last but needed to do 75' of oak flooring bordering a rug inset and some pine door frames and it did a great job.

My brass guide piece has come off. What is the best adhesive to fix it with? Can I send it somewhere for repair?
Milkerdude on Feb 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is the most used plane in my shop. It is also called a slick plane. The brass piece also came off mine after ten years or so. I would think that super glue would fix it, or contact cement. I forget what I did. I bought a diamond cylinder sharpening stone when I bought the plane but have never had to sharpen it. It is much faster than a router and, really, all it is used for is to take the edge off a board I have joined to a sharp edge. Great tool
I can adjust the blades but can't figure out how to remove and replace them ... does anybody know how to do this?
Howard S on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Back the screws from the sides away from the blade just a turn or two. Then insert the Allen wrench into the opening at the top of the plane, as you would to adjust depth. Turn the wrench counter-clockwise until the blade is released and pull it out.
What is the dimension of the radius produced by this plane?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 1/8" radius.
do the chamfer blades also fit in this plane?
Mark M on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes
how do you adjust the blades?
tom n on Jan 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Loosen the set screws on the sides a quarter turn and then use the st screws on the spine to adjust depth of cut. The front cutter should be just barely shallower than the rear.
Don't over tighten
the screws on the sides.
Can this be run in either direction along a edge, so as to minimize grain tearing? The pictures do not show an end view, no it's not clear if there is a "fence" side of if the cutters are centered.
Craig on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Craig - Yes, the plane can be used in either direction; but it cuts in just the direction it is pushed.
There is a metal angle, that fits over the corner you are trimming and three cutting blades that extend into the corner of said angle.
There are adjustment screws to position the blades from side to side, and how far they extend into the metal angle.
I'm confused about what comes with this plane. If I just order #20472 does that come with any blades or do I need to order those separate?
Matt D on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tool only includes the hex wrench shown in the picture. It is used to adjust the depth of the cutting blades. The blades should hold up for a long time unless you are using them on very hard wood. For softwoods like pine, once adjusted, they should last for years.
i just made a maple end grain butcher block table top measuring 21" x 42".can i use this tool to round over the table top?
David W on Jul 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've never tried using mine on the end grain of a wood that is as hard as maple but I think it would work. I'd try in on a piece of scrap 1st. Suspect you'll want to approach the 1st pass as a very like cut.
And this tool doesn't "round over" very much, more just an "easing" of they edge.
Of course if it doesn't give the results you want, as long as you don't go too deep, you could use a router w/ small round over bit in it after.
do you get a radius blade and a chamfer blade with this plane?
al c on Jan 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It comes equipped with radius blades only in the package. I did not investigate a chamfer bade.
What is this thing for? A photo of it doing somthing would be good.
plant guy on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It puts a gentle round or chamfer on the edge of a workpiece, say for example a table top. It works very well and leaves a very clean cut even on endgrain.
What is the difference as far as finished cut between the 20500 and the 20486 and do they both use the same plane body, the 20472?
Jim D on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They both use th same body. One does a round over,
And the other a chamfer.
Why does this plane have holes and the long groove cut in the block? I do not see how one holds it.
Phillip on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: One hole for easy storage to hang it. The two large holes are for the shavings as you run it along the edge. One blade can remove a very small amount and the second can finish it. I use it entirely for rounding off sharp edges on all my work. It is great.
