Category: Specialist Planes
Plane Type: Match, Tongue And Groove
Model No: 148
The Stanley 148 plane is classed as a 'Match, Tongue And Groove' plane
or a 'Double End Match' plane, it is also sometimes referred to as
a 'Push-Me, Pull-Me' plane.
The Stanley 148 is an instant eye catching plane which leaves the uninitiated puzzled and intrigued.
The 148 is an iron version of earlier old wooden tongue and groove planes
The Stanley 148 was the largest plane in this plane series which had three versions of this plane. The other planes in the series were the Stanley 146 and the Stanley 147. The Stanley 148 plane was the largest of the three planes with the Stanley 146 plane being the smallest.
The Stanley 148 plane is used for forming tongue and groove joints on the edge
The plane is equipped with a plough cutter and a tongue cutter. Each respective cutter sits on the opposite side of a central, fixed wall/fence.
Like the handles, the two different types of cutters are set in opposing directions.
This setup allows the plane to be pushed in one direction for one function and turned round the opposite way for the other function.
The Stanley 48 was designed for use on 3/4" - 1" boards.
The Stanley 148 was originally nickel plated to give the plane a bright finish and to protect the plane from rust.
Stanley also produced tongue and groove planes in the form of the Stanley 48 plane and the Stanley 49 plane.
