For fine-tuning tenons and cleaning up corners, rabbets and other joinery elements, the Bench Dog No. 92 Shoulder Plane is a shoe-in. The mouth of the plane is adjustable by sliding the upper section forward and back for fine or coarse shavings. In addition, the entire upper section can be removed for conversion to a chisel plane—great for nicking glue out of stile and rail corners. The 3/4'' blade is a hair wider than the full width of the plane body, ensuring clean, sharp corners without leaving a ridge. Like our other Bench Dog planes, both the sole of the plane and the back of the blade are precision ground and polished flat. The sides are machined square with the sole. Each plane includes a storage case and Certificate of Inspection with measurements specific to your plane for sole flatness and blade hardness.

Features:

  • Ideal for trimming tenon shoulders and rabbets, and performing other precision work
  • Mouth is adjustable by sliding the upper section forward and back
  • Upper/front section can be removed for conversion to a chisel plane and easy access to corners
  • Setscrew in front section retains the mouth setting when reattaching the nose piece
  • Depth of cut is microadjustable with the precision brass knob
  • Finger recesses along the sides ensure a comfortable grip

Love it but if you've never used one
it's a bit of a learning curve.
I got this for my first attempt at mortise and tenon joints but I got myself in trouble right off the bat. Above and below a drawer of an end table I had 1" rails and when I started using the shoulder plane on the back of one of the 1" ends I got it out of square meaning, the board wouldn't be flat in front. I had to glue more material onto the tenon and start over.

Having never had a shoulder plane I wouldn't be the best person to review this tool but it sure seems quality to me

Just a fine shoulder plane.
I carefully sharpened the blade on my Veritas jig, but I'm not even sure if I needed to.

In any case, it takes nice, fine, thin shavings.

Nice tool!
This a nice tool. Well made with the blade sharp out of the box. Immediately put it to work on the shoulder of a tight fitting tenon. Think this will see much more work in the shop.

Well made. Had to ensure the bed was flat and hone the blade a bit, but not much work. Good quality.

Worked just as I had hoped.
Worked right out of the box. High Quality workmanship. Was looking for a 3/4 inch plane, and am very happy with this Bench Dog shoulder plane. I'll use it also for dadoes to join 3/4 inch stock. Will buy another Bench Dog plane in the future.
