In the Saw Shop, coming to stock: Stanley #10 1/2 carriage maker’s rabbet plane!


Vern Burke, SwiftWater Edge Tool Works

Skowhegan, ME

You just never know what’s going to come waltzing through the door when I’m out on the road with the mobile sharpening rig :D.

Today’s little beauty and this week’s restoration project is a scarce Stanley #10 1/2 carriage maker’s rabbet plane (aka “smooth rabbet”).

(not a picture of the actual plane, I can’t restore them that fast 🙂 )

This is a timeline equivalent to the Type 6 Bailey bench planes (1885-1892) and is the first version of this plane. This is a 9″ long plane, almost exactly size matched to the Stanley Bailey #4 smooth plane (hence the “smooth rabbet” moniker). The original cutting iron has at least 3/4 of it’s length left and plane also has the sliding front section that opens and closes the mouth for softwood vs hardwood work without tearout.

This plane is slated to be finished and available by 04/10/12!

Disston D-24. This is a pre-1928 Disston D-24 handsaw. This saw was classified as a “pruning saw” in the Disston catalogs of the day, but it was really just a heavy duty carpenter’s crosscut handsaw, designed by Harvey W. Peace and the Vulcan Saw Works before being taken over by Disston. This saw is 22″ long and 7 tpi with a faded but readable etch. This saw is clean and sharp with a fresh linseed oil and clearcoat finish on the handle.
