I am looking to purchase a small chamfering plane. I would like to use it on small decorative boxes and display cabinets. If you have one and like it, would you please share the make and model number and where you purchased it?
Thanks.

I absolutely love my Slickplane from Woodstock, comes with 1/8” round blades but you can get the 45º chamfer blades. Both the plane and the 45º blades are on Amazon for a total outlay of just over $35.

Jason,

Thanks for the information. Is the plane you were referring to the one in my attached picture?

A couple that Grizzly has on closeout. I have the slickplane and both of these and prefer the planes below. The blade of the small roundover can be ground back to make it a chamfer plane.

Just want to say thanks for posting the question, and thanks for the answers so far.
I just purchased the Slickplane from Amazon, as I was also looking for a chamfer plane.

If you happen to have a Veritas block plane, they make a chamfer guide that pops onto the front of the plane and it does a great job and gives some adjustability to the size of the chamfer as well. I’ve bought one just for fun and found it works really well.

Have fun,

The Slickplane was the model I was leaning towards but the Grizzly sale price was phenomenal. I ended up buying all three for $46. I couldn’t pass it up! I just wanted to thank Jason and OSU55 for the feedback!

I tested out the Slickplane and the Grizzly T27162 this evening. I took them out of their packages and made no adjustments. I then grabbed a piece of pine board that was surfaced on all four sides and commenced to round over. I started with the Slickplane and decided that it did an ok job. It actually left the round over fairly rough in some areas. I then moved to the T27162.

The Grizzly is a very small plane and, yet, feels somewhat weighty because of its ebony construction and brass blade holder. I tried it on four edges and it gave a glass like finish. I tried the plane in both directions and it still left a glass like finish. I was totally impressed.

I plan to mess with the planes a little more this weekend and will try to set the Slickplane up so it doesn’t take off so much material in a single pass. Perhaps that will help with the overall finish of the chamfer.

I just thought I would share since you all took the time to respond. I do appreciate it!

Cheers!
