    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 Neander side as well. Desperate times, desperate measures.

    Carol,
    I don't have one available for sale, but if you decide to go new, I'd suggest the Lee Valley "Veritas" medium shoulder plane. It's designed for smaller hands, and is easier - and more comfortable - to hold onto than the bigger LV or the Lie Neilson versions.

    You could also consider the LV skewed block plane. It comes with an edge guide, and makes a very nice tool for cleaning up rabbets (too wide for dados, though). In addition, it's multi-purpose. It makes a fine low angle block plane, too.

    I like the Stanley in Canada, Rob, but I don't do PayPal and he doesn't do credit cards. Sigh.

    Not interested in the other one.

    Go for them. I'll have to keep looking.

    It was my granddad's, so I can't sell it. I've never cleaned, sharpened or used it, but it could probably be tuned up pretty easily. Wanna borrow it for a while?

    Do you want a new one or an old woody?
    The antique shop where I bought my Disston back saw is still in business and trying to sell out. Meaning good prices. He told me he has about 1200 planes. And I can attest, a whole lot of other tools.
    If you can tell me what you want, or post a picture, and price range I'll pick one up for you. I'm reluctant to go and take pictures for approval as this shop isn't exactly next door and the back and forth would involve a lot of driving and time. But I'm happy to make one trip. Lemme know.

    Carol, don't fall for this scam. He just wants someone to tune it, sharpen it and ship it back so he doesn't have to.

    Thanks, Frank. Rob and I got it covered. Thanks, Rob.

    Boy, do I wish I could see what your guy has to offer, but it is even more miles for me!
