The side rebate plane is the one tool designed to ease or widen a rebate by removing a few thou' at a time.
Tom Lie-Nielsen has done a grand job in recreating this pair of side rebate planes (one left handed, one right handed) from an original Stanley pattern. It is made from his preferred material, manganese bronze, with polished cherry wood handles and cryogenically treated A2 tool steel blades. It is 50mm (2") high and 115mm (4.1/2") long with a blade width of 12.7mm (1/2"). Both planes will fit into a groove as narrow as 5mm (3/16") and their front shoe can be removed for getting into corners.
