Knives of electrical planer
The blades of electric planes may be in the form of a reversible carbide insert or iron with light.
What handyman does not have his portable electric plane handy in his workshop?
If this machine is one of the most common in carpentry, electric plane irons are common but not always standard.
Depending on the brands of machines like Makita, Black & Decker, Hitachi, Ryobi or Skil and many others, the dimensions may vary.
Of course, the most popular is the 82 mm reversible carbide plane iron: small plates with grooves that slide against the iron carrier with 2 or 3 cuts.
The advantage of carbide, remember, is to obtain a better cut and a longer life.
Other planer iron systems exist those with light that can be either HSS or carbide. These fit directly into the shaft of the power tool. These irons are regrindable but less common than reversible carbide inserts for plane.
