Produced by the same maker as our Japanese milled-tooth files, these floats greatly simplify flattening and smoothing the complex wedge mortises of bench and molding planes.
The side float works the sides of the mortise and has curved, milled teeth on one face with a diagonal groove pattern to help minimize clogging. The edge float is for the abutment and bed of molding planes, and also serves as a saw for opening bench plane mouths. It has slightly curved milled teeth on one edge only; the other three surfaces are safe.
About 8" long overall, their blades are 5/8" wide at the handle, just 1/8" at the tip, and have a 4" cut length. Both have sharp chemically etched teeth for a smooth cut, and textured cushion-grip handles.
Made in Japan.
