Tool Type: Wooden Planes
Plane Type: Grooving, Tonguing And Checking
The old British wooden grooving, tonguing and checking planes were in
effect a tongue and groove combination plane.
They combined the common pairs of tongue and groove planes into one plane.
These planes I don't believe were made by a large number of makers. I have come across an Alex Mathieson version (which seems like the most common one) and an unnamed version.
This type of plane is very distinctive with its push-me pull-me look of the blades / wedges facing each other.
These combination tongue and groove planes were produced in an iron form by Stanley with the Stanley 148 tongue and groove plane.
