Your best bet may be Clark and Williams at www.planemaker.com.
Tongue and groove planes comes under the heading of "Custom Planes
Clark & Williams planes are produced one-at-a-time. For that reason,
custom planes or even changes from those listed are possible. It would
be difficult to list all the possible bench and molding planes but
many can be provided by Clark & Williams.

Any reason that you're asking for a new one? Old ones such as the
Stanley 48 and 49 and Union 41 are all over eBay for low prices.
http://www.supertool.com/StanleyBG/stan7.htm#num48 You could also go
with the matched set, funnily enough called match planes, or wood
bodied T&G planes. Again, eBay is your friend.
If you've gotta have new, you can be a beta tester for Steve Knight -
providing you have some deep pockets. I mean seriously deep.
Oops - I guess I should have checked Steve's website before guessing
that T&G would be a new design for him. I bet if you asked really
nice, he'd let you have a tester for less than the $2 million list
price. Ha - for that price, I'm envisioning a solid gold plane body,
with an ivory handle and a diamond-tipped blade that never gets dull.
I second that. A year ago I needed a rebate plane for my restoration work.
Not a tiny little cabinet maker's rebate plane but a two handed joiners tool
and I found one only available new for over 200 quid (!). Ebay, ebay, and
for 30 quid I have two beautiful rebate planes, antiques and a joy to use
You can accidentally buy crap of course, you can't always tell from the
picture and the bloke selling it often doesn't know much. I don't know where
you are but there is always interesting stuff here:
and most sellers will post worldwide.
You might email Steve Knight - I know he's got some new equipment
(CNC) and I think he's working on some new designs. Is there a reason
you don't want to check eBay, flea markets, antique stores, etc. for
