The No.4 smoother is a good starting point for those new to woodworking. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for professional site or bench use. A No.4 is a handy size and weight for finishing and final smoothing as well a general-purpose plane.

Well made, the Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is ductile iron chosen for its high strength and impact resistance. It has an adjustable frog, depth and lateral blade control and Indian rosewood handles. The cap iron and other quality fittings on the planes are solid brass, an ideal material for moving parts.

The sole is 245mm(9-1/2") long with a 50mm(2") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to ± 0.04mm (0.0016").

Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade comes honed with a secondary bevel ready to take shavings. Each blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63.

Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. The No.4 comes with a spare blade, plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
