High quality stainless steel is not magnetic. I believe the adjuster mechanisms are stainless. As for the aluminum, I have all the different versions of the HP-6 and feel that they all work fantastic.

Common "folklore" is that a heavy plane works better; after using the HP-10 which feels like it weighs nothing, I was blown away by how well it cut my rabbit.

I think that a plane's light weight would be very welcome during an extended period of cutting molding.

If the plane makes quality cuts, does the material really matter that much?

Anyway, I am really looking forward to using the plane and expanding my wood working tool kit.

I'm responding to a question I posted a while back... Can you cut a corner bead on end grain with the HP6v2? I'm pleased to report that yes you can! The lid for a desk I am making for my wife required a 1/4" corner bead on 3 sides, 2 of which are end grain. I've cut this moulding in the past using scratch stock and scrapers but thought it would be an ideal opportunity to try the multi plane.

I removed what waste I could with a small block plane and then took multiple light passes. The blade was honed prior to use. It worked just fine.

The attached pics with red background show it freshly cut in the white. The pics with blue background show the same after about 20-25 coats of shellac had been applied and then rubbed out with 400 grit wet or dry paper and 4F Pumice.

You can see from the look of the small knot on the one side how cleanly it cut. I was very satisfied with the result.

Yes, there should be a set screw on each side. They might be in the packaging, if not, call Bridge City and I'm sure they'll send you out a set.

Went to setup my dovetail profiles on my 2 HP-6FX hand plane bodies and after watching the setup video on the website I think I'm missing the side to side adjustment setscrews for locking the profiles from moving side to side.
If so I will need 8 very small set screws for the 2 HP-6FX planes that I have.

Am I correct that the planes are missing the setscrews?

We use 6 micron paste for the hones, which can be found in most stores such as this: ... icron.aspx

We're hoping to stock a few units of diamond paste on our site by the end of the month for those who may not have access to it in their local hardware store.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

The screw is there if you ever use one of the old soles that need to be screwed on rather than held by the dovetail slots; it holds the front knob on after you remove the dovetail piece from the front of the body.

The piece with the magnet goes between the blade and the cap screw, the indent on the piece receives the ball shaped part of the screw and the magnet holds it to the blade so it doesn't fall out when you're setting it up.
