Hey Ike,

The backing out plane is a plane that has a convex sole and blade, the blade is somewhat like the blade on a scrub plane.

Backing out planes are used to put a concave surface on stock, for example, I use my backing out plane for backing out the surface on the mating side of a boat plank, this reduces the chances of the plank cracking.

Its a handy plane to have around the shop.
