Thought I’d share a plane I’ve made a few of recently – the Moving Fillister.
It is a plane for making rebates – it has an adjustable fence to allow you to cut various width rebates and an adjustable brass depth stop to vary the depth of the rebate. And here’s the cool thing – the plane has a skewed iron and a nicker iron to allow rebates to be cut across the grain as well as along it.
The plane is made from quartersawn English Beech and has the corner reinforced with boxwood to prevent wear. The thick 3/16 iron and brass hardware make the plane quite hefty – useful when making wide cuts.
Hope you like,
