Topic tags/keywords: wooden plane vintage plane

I recently bought a box of wooden planes, mostly tongue (without the matching grooves… guess they’ll be decorations), bead and molding planes. But this one has me stumped. Seems like the blade should be on the angled side, which I could see using for panels; but the blade is on the flat side. Anyone know what this is and how to use it? Or is it another decorator piece?

not much to see from that angle, but based on the chamfer on the top you do have the wedge in the correct side.
What does the iron look like, what is the profile (give us a true end shot, not that side/up/twisted/ thing you’ve got going on now), and what does the other side look like?

Here’s some more images. Not sure why they’re loading sideways.

The iron only sets with the cutting edge on the flat side of the plane.

Yea, I don’t know what you mean there – I see a lot of flat sides on that plane. From the first and second pic of the second post though It looks like the wedge is in backwards.

It’s used for trimming groove sides. It’s so narrow so it can get as
deep as possible into a narrow groove.

A most useful plane, actually.

No Bert, it’s a side-rabbet. Like Loren said – it’s used to clean the side of a groove, just like a Stanley 98 or 99.

I want a demonstration.
That seems a bit needy, but here on LJ we aim to please. One demonstration coming right up.

Now I don’t have a wooden side rabbet, I’ve got a metal one. So you’ll have to do some make believe here.
And mine is a righty. His looks like a lefty. So you might need to squint a little and squeeze your temples real hard until the images flip around. But if you can do that the prepare to be astounded.

Just tooling along in the workshop. Working on a dado. Here’s one that needs to be 1/2. Lookin’ good!

But wait, it’s not .5! It’s only .48 and that’s too tight. And it’s raggedy! Oh No! What will I do??!!! Oh the humanity!!!!

Have no fear ma’m, Side Rabbet Plane Is Here!

I just snuggle on down here in the dado, nestled up against the right side, and away we go.

Look ma! One handed side planing! Don’t worry – I won’t fall.

Oooh look at those sexy little shavings pile up. I can just feel the dado getting wider, can’t you?

Oh hootchie mama that’s one smooth dado! And it now measures .5”. Side Rabbet Plane – you’re my hero!

That is AMAZING. Thank you! Now I can take it off the bookshelf and put it to work. I’ll let you know how it works out on the ragged dados I cut for the shelf in the Dutch tool chest I’m building. (First real project… wish me luck.)
