Found this during a tidy up and can't for the life of me remember or work out what its off. Obviously it's some kind of fence ... but from what ?????

I don't recognise it, but it looks fairly modern, so I don't think it's from a hand tool. It might be a rebating fence from an electric planer.

The clamp isn't sprung at all.

To give an idea of scale, the length of the fence is roughly 4 1/2" long and my gut feels more like it's off a hand tool rather than anything electric ... but what ??? Unless anyone recognises it I guess we will never know. :(

Rebating guide for the RB10 style of planes.
Clamps into the open side of mouth not being used.
Cheers Andy
Ps fence should be on other side of clamp.

It's a good job one of us knows what he's talking about!



My excuse is that I have the plane but no fence. :)

No excuses needed Andy 8)
Took me years to find the answer myself even though I had purchased a brand new one in the eighties which did not have this accessory with it :roll:
Ps not sure how you get on with yours but mine (with orange detailing) failed me big time :cry:

Thanks Andy - I get by by using a different plane!

For some reason I have seen a few used ones for sale recently. I had been wondering if they were a useful tool but after the last couple of comments I will give it a miss.
