    Just arrived today, I have yet to try this new Grizzly 778 rebate plane. Here are some photos:

    The cost of the Grizzly 778 rebate plane was $56 plus about $12 S&H

    This is another one I didn’t know about … the Carba-Tec #778 Duplex Rebate Plane from down under.

    What is the first project that you are making?

    Robin-

    Let us know how well it works for you. I’m partial to wooden Moving Fillister planes, perhaps because my front hand has a large chunk of wood to hold. 😉

    I was unfamiliar with the Record 778 until I just dug deeper, apparently an improvement over the old Stanley 78 with two fence posts and finer adjustment? Looks like Anant and Faithfull also have their versions. Anant’s A78 has a front knob. I do not think that is how you are supposed to hold this type of plane. Eeek.

    Yea, Ken turned me on to it

    So far I like to hold this plane by the fence and the base just behind the blade. Looks like the knob just bolts in where the blade would go in the front position. Maybe I will carve a nice horn shaped handle for it?
