Hi LJ’s I was looking for a plane to use with a shooting board and wondered if anyone had suggestions . In particular would like one that I saw the Schwartz use one time in a video that had a handle on the side , looked like it was made for a shooting board.

Thanks

you are right about that, not that you cant use it as a normal plane
I think the plane is from LN and with a hotdog handle

Walt:

You don’t need a side-handled plane for use with a shooting board. Any plane with true squared sides will work. I use both regular and low-angle block planes with my shooting boards.

You can get the fancy side handled planes and drop a lot of money on plane with a specific function. I use an ordinary Stanley #5 Jack plane. The length and weight combo works out better than a smaller plane. A low angle plane does work better though so if you have any of the various low angle jack planes, they should work better.

This sums it up a bit

Lots of info in this older post here on LJ

Or cooler yet, go take a class with Roy and build your own.

Stanley made one once upon a time. LN makes one based on that Stanley plane. I personally use a Record T-5, it came with a side handle and mounting bosses cast into each side for left or right hand use. Properly tuned up,that plane works awesome on my shooting board. The bonus is it cost me about fourty bucks for the plane. Pretty good deal.

Thanks everyone. I had tried a block plane but just wasn’t working. I see now where a heavier plane would do the trick even without a handle I’ll have to start looking around for a good deal since LN and Veritas are some what out of my ballpark right now
