Rabbet plane

1893-1907


Rabbet planes featured a flat bottom with the iron cutting edge running out at the bottom on both sides. They were used for cutting a groove along or near the edge of a piece of wood. Rabbet planes were favored by carriage makers for their small size and ability to get into tight spaces.
