As I've been rather busy in the WS these last 3 weeks I thought it would be nice to have a family day out. Where would you like to go, I say to HID's, lets go into the country and have a nice walk she says.

There is an alterior motive here because I needed to visit Axminster to get some wet & dry (looks like Philly had the last of the 2500) and a Mortice bit and chesil.

On the approach to Axminster and getting a bit low on petrol I decided to pop in and fill up, on the way in HID's said why don't you pop into the shop and have a browse while I fill the car up. Well not to sound too enthusiastic I stolled across the road and ended up finding these two little beauties in my bag when I got home.



I know I'll pay fir it, but what the hect I'm back to work next week and then I'll only be able to dream of my workshop.

Honestly, they are a valuble addition to any workshop. Admittedly, you'll very rarely need them, but when you do, absolutely nothing else will do.

I found this out whilst part way through gluing up some drawers with a mate, glue was on, biscuits in - the base panel wouldn't fit.. Arrgghh. Wet glue means they can't go back ont he tablesaw, - but a few strokes with those and everything went together smoothly. A life saver.

Up the proverbial creek
Welcome to the forum, Tom.

They're a pair of side rebate planes (rabbet in your part of the world). They're the bee's knees for taking a shaving (or twenty) off the sides of a groove, rebate/rabbet, sliding dovetail or anywhere else where other planes cannot tread. The sole is on the side, so to speak. Like, erm... <rummage> this:



This is just about to enter the cut on the far side of the male part of this sliding dovetail*. Easier to do than say... :wink:

Cheers, Alf
