Skewed Rabbet
plane, old tools, woodwork, galoot
I found a skewed rabbet plane at a local garage sale. The skew lowers the effective cutting angle, helping it cut cross-grain:

The "iron" (blade) is bedded at a 45o degree angle, so the skew of the iron is different from that of the opening in the sole. It is an interesting geometrical problem.
