Sash Fillister Plane



Made by Dan Barrett

The sash fillister plane cuts a rabbet or tongue, on sash-bar used for doors and windows. The depth of cut is controlled by the depth stop assembly, which can be adjusted using the thumbscrew. The body, arms, and blade wedge are European steamed beech with a boxwood sole attached to the body using sliding dovetails. The arm and knicker wedges are African black wood. The blade and knicker are made from O1 tool steel. The mouldings are made using a combination of power tools and moulding planes. Every part of the plane is made in our shop.
