Reply To: Restoring a wooden rebate plane

Andrew Sinclair

Hi Colin, that’s a clever adaptation, and of course grooving for drawers is such a common thing it makes sense to have a dedicated plane for it.

My wooden rebate plane pictured above has two nail holes in the base, where someone obviously attached a fence. Easier to make a neat job of the fence attachment on a grooving plane, since the fence registers to the large surface area on the side of the plane.

How to you like the quality of the Pinie planes btw?

Cheers, Andrew
