Veritas skew rabbet block plane No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I wanted a skew rabbet plane for crossgrain rabbets and cleaning up tenon cheeks.

This one fit the bill.

It takes a lot of fettling at first but once it’s set it so easy to sharpen and get back to work.

I’d definitely recommend it

Fridge, you are a man of few words…. lol
Can you elaborate on the fettling? What was off or needed it. I have been considering one but would like more info. The fettling, what features you liked, what you didn’t. Is it right handed or lefty handed? Enquiring minds want to know.

Right hand I’m pretty sure

They have 2 setscrews to adjust the iron to the rabbeting edge and another to limit lateral adjustment. It makes it a lot easier to sharpen and get it back to work.

I’ve got a set. I bought when they had the seconds on sale. I use them a lot. I love them.

My fettling patience is extremely limited due to my sub-par mental capacity, not that you asked. Happy it fits the bill for you.

Thanks Fridge.
