Another thing you can use this and other plough planes for is small rebates (rabbets US). Very handy for corner inlays. Clamp a sacrificial piece of wood to the side of the stock so that the skate runs fully supported and prevents the cutting iron from taking a deep, gouging cut. The depth shoe then rides on the sacrificial piece and so gives exact depth for finishing along the length. The skate itself controls the depth of cut. This is what we did with the old Record 043 and 044. It makes very crisp corners if grain run is good.
