The one limitation of the skew block plane for rebating is that, like a shoulder plane, shavings are not expelled cleanly. They curl up and will get stuck in the side opening if you do not clear them early. I spent time yesterday building a box, and rebating parts using this plane. I am now looking at a modification.

Sharpening a skew blade is easy if you freehand on a hollow grind.

I’ll post some photos later.

Regards from Perth
