HP-8 Mini Block Plane: Honing Guide Options

Created by Gabriel Izzo, Modified on Tue, 16 Apr at 6:14 AM by Gabriel Izzo

You can sharpen HP-8 Mini Block Plane irons effectively using either the HG-4 or HG-30 honing guides. A significant advantage of the HG-30 is its compatibility with the HK-50 kit, which allows for honing at 50-degree angles—an option not available with the HG-4. The HG-4 is designed with a setup gauge that supports 20, 25, 30, and 35-degree angles.

For those using larger planes like the HP-9v2 or even bigger models such as the HP-12, and wishing to achieve a 50-degree honing angle with the HG-4, it is possible to accomplish this manually or with a guide that supports larger plane irons.

Here are some useful links for more information and purchase options:

This flexibility ensures that whether you are working with standard or larger plane irons, there are options available to maintain sharpness and precision in your woodworking projects.
