Specialty Ironwood Side Rebate Planes - Pair
These Ironwood Side Rebate Planes are 225mm long x 22 mm wide x 65mm high.
They weigh 0.6Kg each (1.2kg for the pair) and have a 1/8" thick x 7/8" wide Tool steelblade Rc 62-64
They have a 50 degrees blade angle for planing. The sole is a concave 1/2" radius, 90 degree segment on the left or right hand side of plane. Boxed in brass to minimise wear. The dovetail fences are 19mm wide x 90mm long and can be adjusted up and down from 0 to 7/8 of an Inch. They are fitted with a wooden shoe to match the wood used in the plane. And the dovetail angle is set on this piece of wood.
Fitted with the dovetail fence, the side rebate plane can be used for converting a dado to a tapered sliding dovetail joint. The Dovetail Fence will fit to either the Left or Right hand Plane.
This pair comes with one 1:7 dovetail fence that will fit both the left and right plane.
I admire excellent craftsmanship. The H.N.T. Gordon Planes certainly meet my criteria. I have a number of them: jack, smoother, shoulder, dados, and side rebates. I use these side rebates for sliding dovetails because I like the attachment to guide the angle. They work very well as all the planes do. I am pleased to recommend them.
