Paul has been using the fillister plane for over 50 years because of its versatility, compactness and reliable neatness. In this video Paul gives you a detailed look at the plane’s mechanics and efficiency when rebating.
The Bullnose plane is not a tool which would be classed as an ‘essential’, but it is certainly one which is worthy of an honourable mention.
Paul has put together and then sawed in half a drawbored mortise and tenon to reveal exactly how the peg works.
