$966.00 AUD
Dovetail Fence Size
Second Dovetail Fence Size

Note: Please place your order and we will post your plane once made. 

These gidgee 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 dovetail fence that will fit both the left and right plane.

NOTE: We recommend purchasing this plane with at least one dovetail fence for best results. The dovetail fences are specifically fitted to each plane, which means we must fit the fences prior to shipping.  If you only purchase the plane and wish to buy a fence later on, you may have to send your plane back (at your own cost) or fit the fence to your plane yourself. For this reason it is best to purchase the fence up front. If you would like a custom fence angle, please email us directly at to place your order.

Unparalleled Quality & Utility

I bought the pair of planes with a 7:1 dovetail fence just over a year ago. I have used them extensively to true up a hundred or so sliding dovetails, with some up to 5ft long. I've used them in oak, mahogany and cherry and chestnut. They're easy to sharpen by hand and cut cleanly even accross the grain. The fence is very acurate and perfectly fitted to both planes using a very clever mechanism to keep it solidly in place. I now consider these planes to be an essential tool for any large joinery projects and I find myself using far more sliding dovetails than I have in the past. I've since bought an additional 90° fence so I can put away my old 98/99 side rebate planes for good.

Just Amazing

I've just flown home and opened the package to find these beautiful things. I'm now busy moving house so I haven't put them to work but I wanted to share some thoughts and details. Firstly the packaging was first rate. Inside the package are sturdy cardboard boxes with the planes wrapped in bubble wrap and then placed in a zip lock bag, with packing beans filling any empty space. The zip lock bag was unexpected but I immediately realised it would restrict any moisture changes in the wood. Brilliant! Secondly the level of craftsmanship is amazing. The fit and finish unsurpassed. For example: • The fitment between wood and brass is perfect. Running a finger nail across the join and I can feel the texture change but no lip at all in either direction. • Every edge that is held is deburred and chamfered, just holding it is wonderful. • The dovetail fence is so well thought out. It is held in its own brass dovetail slot. This does two things. Firstly the fence alignment is accurate and repeatable. Tighten the the thumb screw and the two surfaces mate together and self align. The fence is always parallel to the sole. Secondly this holds the fence tight but a whisker off the brass sole. Meaning your reference surface doesn't get marked by the fence or vise versa. This is the opposite to most planes where the thumbscrew tightens the fence to the sole and marks your reference surface

Dovetail planes

I bought these planes as a pair some months ago and I’m now using them on a couple of projects. I bought them to make sliding dovetail joints quickly and easily in my hand-tools only workshop, and they do exactly that. A double-sided sliding dovetail joint, when tight, is an extremely strong glueless joint. The planes have the added advantage that they can be used purely as a side rabbet plane, whereas other options I explored seemed to be one or the other. The planes are very high quality and the gidgee feels wonderful in the hand. They might not travel many kilometres through the wood in their lifetime, but I’ve found myself reaching for them more than I thought I would. They also have the decided benefit of making your workshop look like that of an artisan, even if, like me, you’re not!
