Microplane 3" Interchangable Blade: Round, Angle, Flat
The 3 " Microplane® Snap-In Tools allow for delicate detail work without having to worry about applying too much pressure and breaking the tool. As in the 8" version, the 3" Snap-In features the replaceable, reversible blade insert design. Changing blades is done without tools by firmly "snapping" the blade out and back in. The addition of a finger rest adds increased pressure control. Additional blades available in flat, round, or angle, coarse or fine toothset.
Microplane blades have a shaving effect on both wood and foam. They are smooth enough to be used for flattening and finishing and do not cause chipping when working against the grain of the wood stringer. The Flat, Angle and Round Blade makes shaping the likes of Surboard Swallow Tails, Flyers, Wings and other tight areas an easy (Ideal for PU, EPS or XPS Foam)
- Cuts 10 times faster with less effort than standard SURFORM blades
- Shaves without creating dust
- Excellent on timber stringers and shaping of foam without ripping.
- Ideal for shaping rails, nose and tails
- Made from hardened stainless steel
- Razor sharp non-clogging teeth
Razor-sharp, stainless steel Microplanes® allow for rapid smoothing and shaping of all surfboard foams. They are durable, non-clogging and rust-resistant. This is the latest generation of Microplane® hand tools. Snap-In tools with Replaceable, Reversible blade inserts which may be turned for use on the pull or push stroke. A completely new offset handle design adds increased versatility while combining a comfortable hand grip with a place to hold the tool at the end of the blade insert.
Fantastic for cutting flutes, wings, channels, tight curves and apex's in fish tails. Much more gentle in cutting foam and balsa, leaving less clean up work than a regular surform. I have both the angled (triangle) and rounded, for me that is the perfect balance. So worth the money! - recommend getting both the small and large blades for different application on the board.
Very nimble little tools , makes finessing the blank easy to finish. Perfect channel tool.
