I'm looking to make 18th century window sash with hand planes. Could any of the Bridge City planes be used?

Hi Julian,

I'm not well versed in sash windows, but I think you could make the rebate with either the rabbet sole or dado soles of the HP-6 and possibly use the ogee profile for the decorative trim ... ile-2.html
Although the scale might be too large, check the section and it gives dimensions. It is a very beautiful profile.
