For those of you who missed it the first time around - This is Veritas’ premium block plane, made from a very special corrosion-resistant material – a nickel-resist ductile iron. Significantly more expensive than regular ductile iron, it contains about 20% nickel and retains all of the beneficial properties, while being far more resistant to corrosion – akin to Stainless Steel. Further, it’s density and hardness allow machining to 0.0015” maximum deviation – that’s 0.038 (yes – 1/3rd of 1/10th) of a millimetre! In fact, this density and accuracy of grinding means it takes three to four times as long to grind then a regular ductile iron block plane! The fully stress relieved material is far more durable and all knobs and adjusters are crafted from Stainless Steel.

With its sleek lines and industrial design, this tool represents Veritas’ flagship in a Block Plane and is sure to become the star of any serious tool collection. Heavy, secure and precisely machined; its superb workmanship and attention to detail help deliver a flawless performance – this is a go-to tool for your bench. As a final touch, this model is being supplied by Carbatec with the Premium PM-V11 Blade to match – when only the best will do!

Not available in Australia since 2015 and highly sought after from original productions! We have a very limited number on the way and once gone, we have no idea if or when we may ever see them again. Don’t have regrets – reserve yourself this lifetime tool today.

But some more about the design... The knobs and wheels have elegant elliptical knurled edges for a firm grip. The lever cap has been extensively redesigned to integrate cleanly with the plane body and provide an almost continuous hand-contact surface, with tactile cues for finger placement. The Norris-type adjuster mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments, making blade setting accurate and easy. Close manufacturing tolerances reduce backlash to no more than 1/4 turn. The adjuster is locked to the body, and will not become inadvertently unseated.

Mouth adjustment is effected by loosening the stainless-steel locking knob. An unobtrusive set screw in the throat of the plane allows repeatable mouth positioning while at the same time preventing the moveable toe from contacting the blade. The toe is completely enclosed by the body casting. The contoured body is 6 5/8" (168mm) long by 1 3/4" (45mm) wide, and has a 12° bed angle. It is machined and surface ground to half our normal flatness and surface finish specifications; the sole and sides are flat and square to within +0.000" and -0.0015" over the entire surface. It comes with a 9/64" (3.57mm) thick by 1 3/8" (45mm) wide blade with a 25° primary bevel in PM-V11 tool steel. The back of the blade is lapped flat, that is, within ±0.0002" (two-tenths of a thousandth of an inch, or 0.005mm) in the working area of the blade!
