Rabbet planes are the best tools for trimming
shoulders, rabbets, grooves and tenons. Because the blade extends out
to the sides of the plane, access to right angle corners is possible.
The style of this rabbet plane is known as "bullnose" which describes the
short extension in front of the blade. This short nose piece makes it
possible to work close in corners and hard-to-reach areas. The
front can be removed allowing this tool to also be used as a chisel plane.
This solid, hefty plane is
made in India and represents an excellent value for woodworkers of all
levels. Overall length 5 1/2", 1 1/8" wide blade.
As with all but the most
expensive planes, this tool requires some tune up to achieve it's maximum
potential. Your effort will be rewarded with excellent results!
