Description Tool Care

Side Rabbet Plane Pair

Based on the Stanley No. 98 and 99, our Side Rabbet Planes are the perfect answer to trimming and widening rabbets, dadoes, and all kinds of hard-to-reach recesses and corners. Superbly crafted in Bronze with polished Cherry knobs. The low angle A2 blades produce excellent cuts on both end and long grain. Adjustable depth stops control depth and help steady the tool to the work. The front shoe can be reversed to create a bullnose or removed completely to allow access into tight corners.

Rather than combining two blades in one tool, we offer a matched pair, one left and one right, so you can choose the one best suited to grain direction and type of cut.

  • 4-1/2" long x 2" high, will fit into a 3/16" groove at full depth.
  • Width of cut is 1/2".
  • Weight is .50 lbs. each.
  • Side Rabbet Plane Pair

    This pair of side rabbet, or fillister, planes is perfect for cleaning up or widening dadoes, rabbets, tenons and sliding dovetails. Width (depth) of cut is 1/2". These tools will fit into a 3/16" groove at full depth. Body is 4-1/2" long x 2” high. A shoe in front of the blade can be removed to allow the tool to reach right into the corners of your work.


    The blade is bedded at 8° with a 25° bevel, for an included cutting angle of 33°.


    The brass shoe installed in front of the blade may be reversed to allow planing to within 3/16" of the end of a groove, or removed entirely.

    Blade Adjustment:

    Adjust the blade by hand. Loosen the cap screw, then sight along the sole for depth of cut, and to make sure the edge is parallel to the sole.

    Blade Sharpening:

    The blades are ready to cut wood out of the box. They are ground sharp at a 25° bevel. You may wish to give them a light honing before use. A secondary bevel helps achieve a razor edge.

    Maintain the 25° bevel, or adjust as needed for harder woods. The skew angle is 30°. The blade can be honed freehand, or you can build a jig to hold the blade while using a stone in your hand to sharpen it.

    Note: As you sharpen the blade, you will have to restore the relief angle to allow the blade to plane to the bottom of a groove.
