I watched the video on making a rebate plane with great interest, and I have an old 1/2 inch chisel to dedicate to making my own. I was wondering if one could adapt this project to making a simple plow plane — my thought is to make a rebate plane using a 1/4″ chisel, and then adding a face to the right hand side of the plane to which a second bottom fence could be attached, giving one the ability to center the 1/4 “plane” blade on a 3/4″ board. I will probably get a Veritas small plow plane eventually (it is saved to my Amazon “Wish List” — but I thought this might be an interesting adaptation of Paul’s rebate plane project.
Any thoughts from others?6 December 2016 at 2:03 am #143086cembalo8Participant
As I reread this, I realized that the primary problem with this idea is getting the blade to cut deeper into the wood on each pass. Haven’t figured that out yet.

I think you would need to add a skate that was narrower than the blade, but also deep enough to allow you to achieve acceptable depth in the cut.16 March 2017 at 9:41 pm #310231anssiParticipant
I made this grooving plane modification of Paul’s rebate plane about two years ago of spruce. I’ve made two toolboxes with it, all grooves for panels and drawer bottoms. Makes 1/4″ wide and 1/4″ deep groove.

I made a grooving plane for cutting drawer grooves. It is made along the lines as Paul’s rebate plane. I purchased a 6mm convex shaped iron from LV and re-ground it.

probably making a plow plane is not that difficult: where i live old craftmen made their plow plane using a high carbon steel self hardened and tempered, beech wood and a pair of fat threaded rod. Probably i could post a picture
