Manufacturer of hand planes as far back as 1870, Stanley® introduced its 5 new Sweetheart™ hand plane series destined to craftsman, professionals and collectors that are passionate for woodworking. Revised and corrected, the Sweetheart™ series offers an attractive design with enhanced features like improved mechanical precision, simple adjustments and top-quality material.

  • The thicker blade is made from longer lasting A2 steel.
  • The plane body is constructed from ductile cast iron that makes it heavier then less sensible to vibrations.
  • The precision-machined base offers a smooth and uniformed surface.
  • The choice of wood and solid brass adds to the aesthetic and solidity.

 Here are other features specific to this model:

  • Iron is made from extra thick 1/8" A2 steel for superior edge retention.
  • One piece base and frog virtually eliminates chatter.
  • Cherry wood handle and knob for comfort.
  • Norris type adjustment mechanism for ease of use.
  • Adjustable throat plate for different types of wood.
  • Solid brass hardware for smooth adjustments.

This plane offers an unquestionable quality/price ratio!

A word from the boss 

WMS-2019: Mission accomplished! (19-11-07)

Once again this year, Normand participated in the WMS-2019 National Fair, the most important industrial fair intended exclusively for the Canadian secondary wood processing industry.

Normand was again one of the major exhibitors of this major biannual exhibition, which was held from October 2 to November 1 at the International Center in Toronto.

Our participation was summed up as follows: 750 000 dollars of equipment carried in four 53ft trailers and demonstrated on 3100 ft² of floor space thanks to the support of a team of 25 people.

In addition to some of the state-of-the-art equipment showed, we took the opportunity to spread the full range of Steel City™ machines (more than 50 models) thus confirming the important place acquired by this brand in recent years.

In short, this major investment and the results that should result from it allow us to say: Mission accomplished!
