Okay, so I’m in the market for a plane that will help me clean up my tenons and maybe do some other tricks too. I’ve narrowed it down to a Stanley #78 rabbet plane and one of those skinny wooden shoulder planes that are so common on eBay (in fact, I just saw one listed for $9.99 that ended with no bids).
It seems that these two planes do mostly the same kind of thing, and that they would both work for tenons and rabbet joints. Right? But the Stanley #78 has the bullnose feature which might be useful (for what, though?). So let me leave it up to you: please take my poll and leave comments if you need to explain your answer! Thanks…
EDIT: I just added “Neither” as an answer after reading ChicoWoodnut’s comment. Since only 9 people have seen this entry, and only one has voted so far, this shouldn’t mess the poll up too much.
