After much testing and redesign to improve functionality and reduce cost, the Loon Lake Tool Works Kerfing Plane Kit for the Stanley No 50 Light Plow Plane is ready! The three components in the kit will convert nearly any Stanley No 50 into a kerfing plane used to prepare lumber for resawing with a rip handsaw. A shallow kerf cut into all four sides of the board will encourage the saw to follow the cut without the need to constantly check on the whereabouts of the saw blade, drastically improving the quality of the cut, while reducing sawing time and effort.

Absolutely no permanent modifications are required to attach the components to the plane. On later models equipped with the cutter adjustment lever, the lever, screw, and nut must be removed so that the blade sits flat against the body of the plane. Each kit comes with complete instructions to install and adjust the components on your plane.

The progressively-toothed rip saw blade slides over the fence rods and is held straight by a stainless steel backing plate. Both pieces are sandwiched between the body of the plane and the sliding section, which uses the original wing nut to hold everything secure. The original fence is used to set the location of the cut on the edge of the board. The new depth stop with a longer rod is used to set the total depth of cut.

Note: this purchase is for the three components in the kit only. A plane is not included. You must supply that.

There are only seven kits available in this initial release, so if you miss out, please send me a message to let me know of your interest. More components are on order and should be shipped in the next few weeks.

Note: Thanks to an astute customer, I recently learned that the depth stop does not work on the Stanley No 50 plane that has 'Made in England' on the casting. I have purchased a suitable example of this plane and will add a version of this kit for it in the near future.
