What's better than a Stanley rabbet plane? Two rabbet planes in one! This ''Duplex'' Rabbet Plane features two locations for the iron—one in the rear for a standard rabbet plane, and one in the front for a bullnose plane that reaches into tight corners. The rear location has precise depth adjustment, and all surfaces of the plane have been finely machined for accuracy. The plane includes an adjustable fence, which can be mounted on either side of the plane, and a scoring spur that gives you clean shoulders when working across the grain. The plane body and handle are a sturdy one-piece cast iron construction.


  • Sturdy one-piece cast iron body and handle
  • Adjustable rabbet fence can be mounted on either side of the plane
  • Rear cutter location has precise depth adjustment
  • Scoring spur and removeable depth gauge reduce tear out when planing across the grain
