I’ve been watching the Chris Gochnour series of videos about making an Enfield cabinet, one of which videos describes the making of the tongue & groove back boards using a match plane. I make a lot of tongue & groove back boards. This match plane looks a handy item for one who wishes to move over from the electric router to the specialist planes.
But no one seems to make a modern version of a match plane. It looks like the tongues and grooves would need to be cut with a rabbet plane (twice, for each side of the tongue) and a plough plane (for the groove). The match plane looks a better solution.
Does anyone know of a modern version of the match plane from any of the current manufacturers of high quality planes? Those old Stanley versions seem rare.
