Description

Veritas refer to this plane as a “truly versatile plane”, this could not be further from the truth. This is because it can efficiently be used to trim rebates (rabbets), working end grain, or making final jointing cuts on boards, plus you can use it in all the ways you would a regular block plane. The skew angle that the blade is already set to, eliminate the need to hold the plane at an angle to achieve this angle. As young woodworkers, many of are taught to skew the plane to get a better cut, this is no longer needed with this plane.

In addition to the skewed blade which is set at 15°, the bed it rests on is set at a low 12°, making cutting any grain simple and clean, no matter should this be with- or across the grain. The Norris adjuster and side set screws make for easy setting of the blade, and keep it positioned during use, with a scoring spur positioned ahead of the blade to reduce tear out when cutting across the grain.

The machine ground ductile cast iron body features a hardwood knob, this knob locks and unlocks the mouth, allowing it to closed right up for difficult grains that can often lift and tear out, a closed mouth will assist in reducing this.

Coming with an A2 tool steel blade that is already lapped ready for use, regular honing and polishing of the bevel is recommended to maintain the edge, therefore extending its useable life. The blade is 1/8" (3.18mm) thick, 1-1/2" (38.1mm) wide, with a 25° bevel.

An optional fence and rod is available for both the right and left handed planes to offer the user the control of setting the width of cut desired, knowing that they then only need to be concerned about technique rather than width as well, with the optional depth control also useful for setting and forgetting in order to get the desired depth, without the chance of planning too deep.

Also available in a left handed version.
