What Is A Sliding Section?

What Is
plane sliding section
Home > Tool Dictionary / Tool Terminology


A sliding section is the name given to a part found on many iron plough, combination and multi planes.

The sliding section is usually one of the three largest pieces of these planes.

The sliding section piece provides support for the opposite edge of the cutter to the edge supported by the main body piece.

The sliding section is usually held on two arms.

These arms allow the sliding section to be positioned in the required position to support different width plane blades.

The sliding section sits between the body and the fence (if the fence is present).

The purpose of this sliding section is to help prevent chatter when wider plane blades are in use.
