Also known as a moving fillister, this rabbeting plane cuts quickly and quietly, avoiding the set-up, noise and dust associated with power tools.

Like the Stanley #289 that inspired it, it is configured with a blade skewed at a 30° angle to reduce cut resistance, aid in shaving clearance and help pull the fence tight against the workpiece. Because the blade sits flush with the side of the plane body, corner cuts are clean and accurate. Tear-out on cross-grain work is reduced with a scoring spur that sits ahead of the blade. The 7-3/8" long fence allows a maximum rabbet width of 1-1/2" and is through-drilled to accept a wooden extension. An adjustable shoe controls the depth of cut to a maximum 3/4" deep.

Supplied with a lapped A2 tool steel blade that is 1/8" thick and just over 1-5/8" wide, with a bevel edge that is about 1-3/4". The depth-adjustment mechanism is fast and accurate, with an independent traveller to prevent lateral shifting of the blade. Set screws along the side allow repeatable blade positioning. The large wooden handles are solid and comfortable to hold. The 9-3/4" long ductile cast iron body is machined with a 45° blade bed and weighs 3-1/2 lb.

The plane is available in left- and right-hand versions. You may need only the version that suits your dominant hand, though neither model is exclusively for left- or right-handed users. They are in fact complementary, since having both lets you accommodate any grain direction. Replacement blades are available in A2, O1 or PM-V11® steel. Patented.

A pair of 6" stainless-steel fence rods (2-1/2" longer than the rods supplied with the plane) are available separately. They are desirable when you need to add a thicker auxiliary fence for stable registration against a workpiece, such as with a tapered spacer for angled cuts, but still require use of the full cutting width of the blade. Flats on the ends of the rods permit wrench tightening.

Made in Canada.
