Hi, I purchased a Rider 3 in 1 shoulder plane from Busy Bee Canada for about 70 bucks CAD. The blade wont take or maintian a sharp edge. I think this plane is based on a stanley 93. Axminster UK sells it too by the way. Other than a blade from them which is fairly cheap, does anyone have any tips on finding a good blade for this plane. It has a slot in it for the adjusting screw and is 1 inch wide. Thanx

Sometimes there is good steel 1/8” back if you grind.

Is that just from getting too hot when ground, or something?

No, faulty tempering at the factory I think. It happens
with Marples chisels and others. They tend to over-soften
the edge to make it easy to grind or something.

No guarantees of course, but it’s worth a try if a chisel
isn’t working out.
