A cap iron serves to stiffen a plane blade, helping to damp vibration and reduce the potential for blade chatter.
Made of corrosion-resistant A2 steel, our 1/8" thick cap irons are sized to fit Stanley and Record planes. The leading edge of the cap iron is machined with a relief angle to ensure it always contacts the face of the blade, so no gap can form.
The cap irons are also available paired with our A2, O1 or PM-V11 blades.
Made in Canada.
