Cosmanized Plane Adjustment Driver
If you use hand planes you need a screwdriver designed to fit tightly into the adjustment screw slots. You could use one of the screwdrivers from your toolbox, but the tip is probably not thick enough to snugly fit into the adjustment screw slots, making it easy to slip out and deform your screw slot.
Our Cosmanized Plane Adjustment Driver fits WoodRiver plane adjustment, tote, and handle screw slots perfectly giving you control, without slipping.
Our blade tips are custom, precision-ground in a crisply radiused, hollow-ground shape to give maximum strength. And, the ideal parallel section is ground at the tip to fit the screw slot properly through the full width and depth of the slot. This is what keeps you from buggering the screw slots - a blade tip that evenly distributes the turning torque applied at the handle to the full width and depth of the screw slot.
The shank is short (you're only 2½" from the workpiece) to give you maximum control, eliminate wobble and tilt. It is hardened to Rc 58-60 for maximum strength and toughness. The shank maintains the same diameter as the width of the blade. This allows repeated re-grindings and re-shapings while still maintaining the original blade width.
Finally, we wrap the handle with hockey tape to help ensure a good grip.
Overall length: 6.25 inches
Handle Length: 3.75 inches
Shank Length: 2.5 inches.
Handle Diameter: 1.175 inches
Blade Width: .360 inches
Blade Tip Thickness: .060 inches
The better way to tighten the screws on a plane.
The straight sides of the screw driver helps the driver from cutting into the sides of the screw slot. Standard screw drivers can wedge the screw slot, and cause the slot to deform.
Perfect tool for the Job
The size of the head is an exact fit for the job it is intended. It does exactly what Rob tells you it does. Get it you will never need another. Thank you
Great for your plane
This screw driver fits chip breaker screw and makes positive contact. I can snug my blade and chip breaker without having to worry about it slipping and marring the screw.
Its a great tool by itself, but the hockey tape puts it above the rest. some screws slots on my Baily #5 are too small, though. I'd make another one with a thinner head.
