Microplane blades are made from 400 series stainless steel and have been fitted to an aluminium extrusion which is provided with a 5/16" (8mm) shank.
The beauty of this method of shaping is the resulting waste, which is tiny shavings rather than dust, and the superior finish left by a tool that cuts rather than scrapes, tears or abrades, creating clouds of dust.
Recommended to run at between 1,000-2,000rpm and not exceed 2,500rpm. The Rotary Shapers rotate clockwise. Materials being fed into the shaper should be fed left of centre to reduce kickback.
2inch (50mm) diameter. Height 2 3/8" (60mm).
