Renowned wood worker, Rob Cosman offers many wood working tools and branded replacement blades for hand planes manufactured by IBC. Support one of your own, shop now.
Since 1981, all our tools had been handcrafted to satisfy the demands of the most discriminating professional. We still focus on the intended use of the item and work to facilitate that end. Little attention (or expense) is spent on "image" considerations such as packaging, non-functional cosmetics or promotional gimmicks. The extra thickness of our blades offers superior stability, precise adjustment, and easier honing.
Industrial Blade Company’s new e-commerce store featuring, IBC’s premium hand plane blades, the award winning matched blade and chip breaker sets for older bench planes and IBC’s new premium bench chisels.
My small shop is bursting at the seams with planes, saws, chisels, hammers, and the tools used to restore them. Initially, it was only for myself. However, a close friend finally convinced me to restore a plane for him. One became ten and that first “customer” became fifty.
It was through the encouragement of that friend and first customer that I finally hung out the Loon Lake Tool Works shingle, offering new and vintage tools, as well as saw sharpening and tool restoration services.
The Service and Parts You Have Become Accustomed To
In addition to helpful restoration information, beautifully tuned hand planes are also for sale here.
This site offers a fairly extensive list of user and collector-grade woodworking and machinist's hand tools. For the last ten, the owner has haunted flea markets and auctions, buying far more tools than can be used. Her collector instincts are directed to finding hand saws with local (southeastern Massachusetts) hardware store marks, and 19th century patented American braces.
