There are so many different types of planes for all sorts of applications and being totally hand plane ignorant I have no idea what type of plane does what. Does anyone have a link to very basic information on hand planes? I’m not a hand tool guy but would like to learn to be able to use some hand tools. I know that having the right tool for the job makes the job a lot easier and yields much better results.
Example. I’m making a cabinet and I ended up making the dados just a tad too tight. The only way to really go back and widen the dado was to use a chisel in a paring sort of motion. There has to be plane that would do this much more easily and yield much better results that I can get using chisels. So what kind of plane takes a little of the shoulder without making the dado deeper? My guess would be a shoulder plane, oddly enough, but is that right? So that’s the sort of thing that I would like to learn more about.
