Looks like the shavings I get when using a plow plane. Nice even (1/4” ?) width the full length, with a sweet curl.

Plowing a groove would seem the obvious one, but I don’t get such tight curls when I do that. So I’d say cutting a thin rabbet with a wooden plane where the curl would be wound tight as it’s being ejected from the tight hole opening.

The operation is right … cutting a groove … but I do not own a plow plane. Doesn’t a plow plane have a movable fence?

Shavings from a match plane. I get shavings like that from the 48

-- I measured once, cut twice, and its still too short...

Seemed to happen with this Traditional Chinese edge plane I made, a few years back..

Sometimes, a “spill plane” will do those…when doing a rebate

John, I’m going to have to give it to you. Although I did not use a Stanley #48, I did use a groove plane from a tongue and groove set.
 

 
This was an easy one!

Doing a rebate with a spill plane? It is my understanding that the spill is the only product of a spill pane.

John, are you too a hand tool junkie? I’d like to see that 48. What’s the chance of a posting a photo here?

I wouldn’t say I’m a junkie, plenty of electrons in the shop when i need to. That being said i did just drop some coin at a lie nielson hand tool event on saturday. Hahaha
I’ll snap a pic or two when I’m in the shop later.

The old and the new. I really couldn’t get the vintage Stanley working quite right. I think it may be shot, so i splurged for the lie nielson a couple of years ago. I love that plane. Flawless results every time.
