One of the first tools I bought as a woodworker was a Record no. 7 Hand Plane, which I still use every day. My Block Plane has the Hock replacement blade in it and it cuts like a dream!
Hock makes fantastic replacement blades, that makes a seasoned hand plane work like new. They’re reasonably priced, and can be put on a hand plane that’s over 50 years old!
New hand planes can range from hundreds of dollars to thousands, so instead of buying new one why not clean up the hand plane you already have and upgrade the blade to the Hock replacement? You’ll be glad you did!
