I’ve read about The Schwarz using a rabbet plane as a first step to dovetails, and it’s made me think I need to get me the Veritas Skew Rabbet. With a little project I’m doing with #2 Son, I have recycled boards that needed cleanup.
What I tried was the Stanley #278. I set the fence to the baseline,
Did some cutting (sorry for the lack of strong shaving, I was in a hurry),
Results were very strong!
The tool has a Special Purpose! ;-)
Thanks for looking!
