Topic tags/keywords: plane

Not looking for an expensive Veritas or L&N. Just something functional. Also looking for a better router plane than the one I made. Post or PM me.

Rabbeting plane is pretty broad topic. Wood? Metal? Skew ? Straight?
I may have an old wooden skew iron one.

For router plane i may have an old old woman tooth. But for usage you may find the tay tools one on Amazon may a good deal.

Oh, sorry. I’ll post an example of what I’m looking for when I get home.

For wood. Basically a shoulder plane with a depth (width) adjustment.

Thanks.

Sounds like you want a rabbeting plane with a fence and perhaps a depth stop. There are skew designs but they are pricey compared to the old Stanley no.78 and its copies.

Yes. I’m still preparing to cut some Cosman dovetails and gathering the tools needed. I still can’t justify $45 for the marking knife but I bought the blade for $25 and made a handle. Sharpened the saw per Paul Sellers and other things to give myself a fighting chance at success. Blog to follow. Gonna do like Paul suggests and do 100 saw cuts to practice the technique. Stand by.

Andy, looking for one like this?

It’s a 100% complete NIB made in England, I’m on the right coast, not sure what shipping would be to the left coast. PM me and we can talk if you’re interested.

I too was thinking that marking knife was a bit steep and found this

It seems to do the job well. I bought a rabbit plane but used the ruler clamped to the board on my first project. I just haven’t gotten around to tuning the plane yet. Something else to try is another method I have seen using two layers of painter tape and cut through them with your marking wheel. It gives enough of a shelf to register to the pin board. I have also used the Katz Moses magnetic saw guides with good results along with the Cosman method.

I have one you can have for the cost of shipping. It needs to be cleaned up and is missing the front iron and lever cap. I imagine the shipping would be about $15. It was given to me and I just haven’t had time to restore it. It could be yours if you want to put in the time.

Very generous, Bondo. And there isn’t a second iron/cap for that plane. It’s intended that the set that’s there is moved to the bullnose section when needed.

It is missing a depth stop and fence and fence rod, though. Useable without, but missing nonetheless.

I forgot that I also saw another method. Use a chisel to cut into the marking wall like when creating a saw guide. Then you allow the end of the tail board to be slightly lower than the pin board in the vise so the kerf will register. Haven’t tried this yet but it looks fairly straight forward. I am amazed how how many ways the same task can be accomplished. I always get that “why didn’t I think of that” feeling.

Yeah theres a million ways to do it. Either the simple way that millions of craftsman have done for hundreds of years. Or if you are selling massively overpriced unnecessary specialty tools, make it as complicated as you can to sell said tools.

Excellent. Thanks. I’m waiting to hear back from ChefHDAN as his has the depth stop but I’ll let you know.

I bought that knife (I think you suggested it) but when it arrived it was very thin. I made a handle for the Cossman blade that I got from Woodcraft. It was $25 but it was in front of me so my ADHD self reached for my debit card. Was it worth saving another $20? Probably not but like i said it was my alter ADHD “do it now” persona that bought it. :-) They had the knife but wouldn’t sell it to me. They only carry the blades otherwise I would have bought it. It is a nice ergonomic metal handle. The painters tape idea seems good as well as some of the other suggestions.

That 78 style plane is great for rabbeting face grain on soft-medium woods. Just make sure to hone the iron razor sharp straight across(no camber or grinding off corners) And also know the iron is supposed to be a smidge wider than the body, thats how a rabbet plane works so don’t think it needs to filed flush or anything. Also, make sure to hone the little knicker and turn it down(the little “cross” shaped thing screwed into the side)

Andy, I think Don may be the best option
