Rhykenology: Standing Fillister Plane, Dutch

A subset of the Rabbet Plane group is the Standing Fillister Plane. Although sometimes called a fenced rabbet, this is a rabbet plane with a permanent, integral depth stop formed in the body. Sometimes you will find a rabbet plane that has been altered by an owner to function as a Standing Fillister. Most I have seen were maker made to fit a specific size.
