    Little Brother

    Got the new Veritas miniature rabbeting plane today. It's even smaller than I'd thought it'd be. Cute little feller, though - Here it is 'playing' with its bigger brothers:

    Jim:

    I saw that in an Lee Valley email promotion recently. Is there a practical use for a plane of that size? Is it for touching up tenons?

    I'm a neophyte neander, though I have successfully used my Bailey #5 as a poor mans jointer.

    Cheers

    Jim

    Nice one Jim I am still waiting on getting the medium sized brother. You already have the whole family and the relatives uncle aunty and all.

    I saw the LV advert but wondered what it would be used for being so small, hows about a demo of its use.
    cheers

    I saw that last week at the LV store. It is a cute little guy. It was razor sharp and had a neat little case. I could see slicing my fingers real easy with something that small. I just couldn't find any use other than hanging from a key chain for it.

    Rob,
    Now that I have it, I really can't think of a really good use for it. It's just too danged small to be practical.

    Boy that is small, maybe for regular woodworking, it may not be of much use, but I bet some model or scale woodworkers would find it very useful

    It'll toughen him up in the long run, getting to hang out with the big boys.
