The Side Rebate Plane is used for cleaning up or trimming sidewalls of rebates, dados or grooves. It has a practical dual-blade configuration, coupled with an ingenious pivoting sculpted to fit comfortably handle that permits right or left-hand use to accommodate grain direction. The thin sole functions much like a skate, allowing use in slots as narrow as 4.8mm(3/16") and to a depth of 12.7mm(1/2"). The toe is removable for use in stopped dados and has a fixing screw that is trapped to prevent loss. The depth stop helps orient and stabilise the plane during use and is both height adjustable and reversible. The accurately machined, 115mm(4-1/2") long ductile cast iron plane body and the two O1 tool steel blades (HRC 58-60) are lapped. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 microinches) or better. Weight 450g.
