Anant Rabbet.jpg (8350 bytes) Bullnose Rabbet Plane

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!  Instructions included.
