    I picked up a Stanley 78 and I’m finding it a bit tricky to work with. I don’t have a tail vise on my bench but I want to secure my work pieces to the long edge of the bench. I was hoping to get some tips for ways to secure my work for the rabbet plane.

    Thanks for any help you can offer!


    Hi Jay,

    I use Paul’s ‘clamp in a vice’ method, i.e. put a sash clamp in the vice in such a way that the plane can run along the edge of the board freely. If you have a board that’s longer than your longest sash clamp, I guess you could use a couple of ‘F-shaped’ clamps. They might get in the way but you could plane the rabbet in sections, moving the clamps along the board as you go. More time consuming, but perhaps this would work.
