NO, I only noticed something wasn't right when I started planing
I made the same mistake with my workbench top, I carefully selected the grain direction of all the timbers so it would be easy to plane the top, for a LEFTY. :evil:
I used to have a 78 (sold it here a long time ago) because I 'acquired' my dad's 778. From what I recall, the main difference is the depth adjustment and fence locking. The 778 has a screw thread depth adjuster, 78 has a lever. 778 fence locks on 2 bars, 78 just the one.Osvaldd":2oeks80a said:I want to buy a metal rebate plane. Was wondering how does no78 compare to no778?
No78's are plenty, could be had for £15-20, but the singe fence rod worries me. The no778 however is very pricey.
