Replacement Iron for the new HP-9v2 Dual Angle Block Plane
*The new HP-9v2 Dual Edge Plane Iron will not fit the older version USA made HP-9 Plane. The older USA irons will fit on the new HP-9v2 planes but it will not be a tight fit. To order irons for the older USA made HP-9 Plane, please contact https://www.bctwlegacyrepairs.com/
This robust replacement iron for the HP-9v2 is made of A2 tool steel and hardened to Rc60-62. It is 3/16" (4.5mm) thick and 1-3/8" (35mm) wide. It is ground to 30 Degrees with a 5 Degree micro-bevel on one end and to 25 Degrees with a 5 Degree micro-bevel on the other end. Mounted in the HP-9v2 with its 12 Degree bed, the result is a 47 Degree bevel for normal planing and a 42 Degree for end grain.
The bottom of the iron is lapped to a mirror finish (RMS .5 or better) and requires no further work by you to flatten it.
