    Lie-Nielsen side rabbet plane, copy of the Stanley 98 & 99.
    The link in the above post is not the correct plane for this job.

    Lanso: Thanks for the info. And Terry, thanks for the link.

    I had just posted this and clicked on the link for the plane. Wow! $225.00. That's more that half of my tools combined. Something that good and valuable would be a waste on me. I could see how well it could be used by a pro.

    That is a little expensive!
    I doubt I paid that much, I bought the pair 10 - 15 years ago.
    Look on eBay, I see some original Stanley 98 & 99s for less.
    Or make a little sanding block.

    Sie Rabbet Planes

    One of my favorite planes combines the features of both the 98 and 99 planes in one. The Stanley no. 79 is both a left and right side rabbet plane. I reach for this one because it was my Dad's. He engraved his initials on everything!


    Another one I use frequently is his old Stanley no. 92 rabbet plane.


    I can't believe how expensive these things have become!! But, they do a great job. Knowing my Dad used them and held them in his hands makes them priceless to me.

    Yeah, they changed my Parkinson's med. and then doubled them. One of many side effects is insomnia.
