    Rabbet plane wanted

    The project I am on would benefit mightily from a rabbet plane. It would be used to clean up a sawn rabbet.

    What should I look for, and what would be a fair price for a user? Brands, sources?

    Anyone in the family have one available?

    If I have to go new - suggestions?

    I have been woodworking for decades and haven't really needed one until now, so I don't expect this to be a big time user, but just the same, it is needed now.

    Hey, Paul Gallian, if you are going to that auction this weekend and there happens to be one there, maybe we can do a deal???

    One last thing, I really need it next week! Or the project won't make the due date.

    Cross posted in the Classifieds as well. Desperate times, desperate measures.

    Hi Carol,
    Not trying to talk you out of a new tool purchase but you could build a chisel plane and be up and running in a couple hours.

    I agree...that's very cool, Victor.

    Yeah Don it's not an original idea, not sure where I got it...probably from a magazine. Down and dirty but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

    I like it!

    Just remembered I bought a skew iron for a plane build from a family member here. Anyone know how I could make that work? I can't quite visualize it. I can take a picture of it later if need be.
