Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has added seven new Bench Dog hand planes and a range of accessories in an expansion of its selection of traditional woodworking tools.

New models include a No. 7 jointer plane for milling boards flat and straight; three models of general-purpose jack planes – a No. 5, a No. 5-1/2 and a No. 62 (low-angle); a No. 4-1/2 smoothing plane; and two types of shoulder planes for refining rabbets and tenons – a No. 92 and a 3-in-1 model that can be converted to a bullnose and chisel plane. They join two previously introduced Bench Dog planes – a No. 4 smoothing plane and a No. 60-1/2 block plane.

All Bench Dog planes feature bodies made from ductile iron, blades made from tempered, high-carbon spring steel, and solid brass fittings. Handles are made from sapele wood. All planes come in a box that can be used for storage, and a fabric storage sock is included with all but the small shoulder planes to provide extra protection against rust and corrosion, according to the company.

“We got a lot of positive feedback from customers about the No. 4 and No. 60-1/2 Bench Dog models, and we wanted to expand our hand plane selection,” Jessica Stephan, Rockler’s vice president of merchandising, said in a statement. “These new additions provide a wider range of high-quality, affordable options for woodworkers who enjoy working with traditional hand tools.”

Rockler also has introduced replacement blades and chip breakers, as well as individual storage socks in various sizes.Prices for the Bench Dog hand planes start at $99.99.
