Ideally, every joint would fit first time every time, though this is not a perfect world, and timber moves, machines and tools can lose their setup, and human error also plays a factor. So, Veritas created the Side Rabbet Plane to save those joints, and save the hair that we would be pulling out when this happens. It is used for cleaning up or trimming sidewalls of rabbets, dadoes or grooves to yield a perfect fit with its mate.

It has a practical dual blade configuration, coupled with an ingenious pivoting handle that permits right-hand or left-hand use accommodating grain direction. The thin sole functions much like a skate, allowing use in slots as narrow as 3/16" and to a depth of 1/2".

The toe is removable for use in stopped dadoes and has a fixing screw that is trapped to prevent loss. The depth stop helps orient and stabilize the plane during use and is both height adjustable and reversible by simply loosening the screw and rotating the stop without removing it from the body.

The handle has a spring loaded pivot for sure positioning and has been designed to fit the hand so it will not move accidentally in use. The accurately machined, 4-1/2" long ductile cast iron plane body and the two O1 tool steel blades are lapped and ready for use. Pressure on the blade cap from a wave washer keeps the blades steady during set-up.
