Because of the high quality and reputation of our planes customers should expect a wait to receive any plane order. Planes from Old Street Tool are based on early 18th Century British planes which we believe represent the highest quality planes ever produced. Jointing long edges and some other special purpose applications are easier with a longer plane.
While wooden plow planes evolved into bulky and clumsy presentation pieces whose main advantage was they were less expensive than gold watches, the Old Street Tool plow plane is true to the original functional form. Old Street Tool side bead planes cut a bead profile on the edge of stock and that profile suggests 180° of arc. Ogee planes from Old Street Tool are made with spring and sized by the overall width of the profile. Old Street Tool Grecian ovolo planes cut an elliptical arc and are sized by the depth of cut rather than the width of the profile.
Planemakers used a variety of numbering schemes, the most common of which is to assign the plane a number based on the radius of the arc it cuts in 16ths. There are several factors that determine the value of a wooden plane- the maker, the condition, and the type of plane. General Features Tongue and Groove planes (also called match planes) are sold in matched pairs intended to work with each other.
Today, I had an iron from a Stanley plane that was a bit pitted and not a lot of life left. The LeeValley page says the Muji plane is prone to chatter due to the lack of support from the wedge further down. Last, keep in mind that rabbets let into curves were the purview of carriagemaker's rabbet planes with short, convex soles.
As such there is nothing but a firmly set wedge to keep these irons from falling through the mouth of the plane. We find this size ideal for the localized clean-up work of a smooth plane and it is very comfortable to use with amazing agility and control. With the combination of these planes it is quick and direct to produce about any profile of furniture length moldings. As the bedding angle increased, the action of the plane iron becomes more of a scraping action, and less of a shearing action.
This book will give you some basic facts and working dates for most American planemakers as well as an idea of how rare the mark is. Old Street Tool snipes-bill planes are shoulder boxed with persimmon and are important companions to our hollow and round planes. There are some early American planemakers whose mark makes even an ordinary molding plane wroth thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. It is a simple plane to use- hold it upright against the edge of a board and plane until it stops cutting. Also make sure that the plane hasn't twisted- sight down the sole of the plane along the boxed quirk and make sure there is no deviation. The nice thing about wooden t&G planes is that they don't require any tweaking or test cuts like a router bit would. It discusses the physics of planing, the basic types of molding planes, the specialized planes used by specific trades, and help identifying hundreds of different complex molding types. The allows a rabbet plane to cut flush to an edge, just like its metallic counterparts like the Stanley no.
It can be used like a shoulder plane to adjust a tenon cheek or the long edges of a panel for a frame and panel door.
This may be a thumbscrew-adjusted brass or steel plate, a brass shoe held in place with a screw, or a wooden peg or tombstone shaped depth stop that relies on friction alone to hold it in place. Once you get your first experience with a properly tuned molding plane- and whiff of that distinct smell 100year old beech makes when it heats up in use, you'll be hooked. While I can't find any good uses for a lone tongue plane, a grooving plane is a useful tool to have around for plowing fixed grooves like for drawer bottoms or frame and panel work. You can get away with using planes on slightly thicker or thinner stock as long as you keep careful track of the working faces of the boards.
You will often find rabbet planes with holes in the sole- remnants of a fence being temporarily secured to the sole. For better balance and control, and in keeping with 18th Century style, our toted planes have off-set totes for right handed use. The rabbet planes suggested by Old Street Tool have square irons but skewed iron rabbet planes can be made.


Snipes-bill planes are made in mirror image pairs and are used in conjunction with rabbet planes and hollows and rounds to produce moldings.
Over the past couple of months I have received many emails from customers and readers of my blog interested in getting started with molding planes.
General Features: The rabbet plane is one of the simplest molding planes yet also one of the most versatile. You may want to look at the rabbet planes listed on eBay, not necessarily to buy, but for ideas. Before buying a rabbet plane and occasionally still, my rabbets have been made using a chisel. I actually bought the Lee Valley wooden rabbet plane, before I made mine, as I wanted something to work with and get some experience with. This is the traditional workhorse plane that does the lion's share of stock removal when preparing and thicknessing stock. These user friendly planes are at home on the bench and perform with a grace not shared by their bigger distant cousins. This plane has a steel shod brass depth stop adjusted with a left hand thread adjusting rod (unless otherwise requested) so that it adjusts more like modern tools most woodworkers are familiar with. Generally, folks want to know where to start: how to choose a plane, what planes are used for which woodworking tasks, and what would be considered a good starter kit.
Molding planes can take the place of most router bits and leave a much cleaner surface than any router can. These planes will enable a woodworker to complete nearly any work traditionally done with hand planes and is the most complete line of planes offered in North America since the demise of the Sandusky Tool Company in 1925. While potentially useful for repetitive rough dimensioning of rabbets, we suggest woodworkers consider a square rabbet as more accurate and versatile.
The common profiles and plane types discussed below are usually fairly inexpensive in comparison to more complex planes. A dado plane does not have a fence so it must be guided with some sort of baton either nailed or clamped to the board being used. I am going to try to provide some general information on the basic types of molding planes along with some things to look for when shopping for a plane. Some hollows and rounds have skewed irons to help with difficult wood and working cross-grain- picture skewing your bench plane when you tackle a tough board and you'll see what I mean. The iron of the grooving plane will look similar to a plow plane blade with a deep V cut in the back to allow it to engage the skate. T&G planes are marked at their heels with the thickness of the stock they are intended to work. Most rabbet planes have skewed blades which makes them perform much better when planing cross-grain, similar to skewing a hand plane. Most planes have boxing on the right hand edge of the plane's sole where most of the wear occurs. Soon the founder and his son Max, had to leave their small workroom and build a plant to meet the demand for their planes. Items I 37 of 37 But I got to wondering would this wooden rabbet plane practice the Sami matter http 41192&ap 1.
The jack plane is a smaller lighter version of a roughing plane and may be preferred when preparing stock of smaller dimensions. Some background: I have been interested in hand tools and wooden planes in particular for about 10 years. Uses: A dado plane cuts a dado- a groove away from the edge of a board across the grain of the wood.
A few years ago I made my own, after having made several traditional Krenov bench type planes.
The degree to which my plane and the LV plane perform seems to depend on the wood to be planed.
This plane is intended for fine end grain cuts and care must be taken to maintain a bevel angle of around 25° with this plane to avoid clearance angle issues. There is a high demand from collectors for early American wooden planes, especially those from the 18th century, and those by well-documented plane makers. The fore plane has a comfortable closed tote designed for heavy work and has a 50° bedded iron.
I also like making and repairing molding planes, something that has helped me to understand how they work and how to tweak and tune them. The body should not be twisted (put it on a known flat surface like a jointer table or surface plate and check if it rocks) and the sole should be close to 90 degrees to the sides of the plane.


The benefit to a higher pitch is that the plane will perform better on hardwoods with difficult grain. Many trades, such as sashmakers, casemakers, stair builders, and coopers used highly specialized planes in their work. I like to acquire tools as I need them, taking the time to tune up each new plane on its own rather than acquire everything I may ever need all at once.
In the future I hope to put together an article on complex molding planes as well as specialized planes like sashmaker's planes. The rabbet plane, which is much easier to sharpen than a plane with a curved blade like a hollow or round, is used to hog off the waste between the molding profiles while the hollow and round molding plane is used as sparingly as possible.
You will often find these planes in rough shape, evidence of their being used for coarse work. A molding plane is a very simple tool- it is a piece of wood, almost always beech, that holds a blade (the iron) which is held in place with a wooden wedge.
General Features- Hollows and rounds are pretty straight forward- planes that have a concave or convex sole and cut either a hollow or round profile.
If you're familiar with how to make Krenov planes, I've simply taken that basic concept and applied it to a making a rabbet plane.
Getting whispy thin fine shavings out of either plane is not something I think they excel at. Unlike almost every other plane, H&Rs are named by the shape of the plane's sole, not the profile it creates.
An adjustable fence and depth stop allows the plane to be set to cut a rabbet of a precise depth and width.
While these marks are rare, it's usually best to research a plane's maker before trying to put it to use. If you want to quickly add a bead detail to a door or table apron, tweak a rabbet, or cut a few dados, you can grab a molder and have it done in seconds. It's also much easier to quickly wreck a piece using a power tool than with a molding plane. It is possible to match up T&G planes from different makers, it is unlikely that the resulting joints will fit perfectly.
A molding plane blade is generally bedded at 45 degrees to the sole of the plane, though British planes commonly used 50 degrees (York pitch) or higher.
I had the plane from Lee Valley (actually I bought mine from Japan Woodworker) and tried several rounds without being able to stop that chatter.
Together with a moving fillister and rabbet plane you can make almost any shape of molding.
It can be used upright or on its side to tweak the depth or width of a rabbet cut by a fillister plane.
I have listed some books in the resources section at the end of this article that can help identify a plane's maker and potential value. However, just because a plane isn't cosmetically perfect doesn't mean it won't make a good user. I answer them by thinking of the molding planes I use the most and trying to figure out which planes I would miss the most if they disappeared. The body of the dado plane will be somewhat thinner than the actual width of cut- this is correct. Of course, you don't need to acquire them all at once- get one or two planes and try them out. It incorporates the following features: Adjustable mouth size by sliding a section of the front sole which is firmly secured by a screw head on top of the plane body.
It's probably not a good idea to try to use, and potentially ruin, an early American plane which could be worth the cost of an entire fleet of more ordinary molding planes.
I’ve been hedging on buying the veritas medium shoulder plane since if I wait until That is a big rabbet plane The closed carryall has group A crevice in the battlefront which is the result not of damage. The better planes will have the nicker blade bedded in a mortise in the side of a the plane, a wedge holding it tight.
