  • The Veritas #4-1/2 smoothing plane represents the evolution of a traditional tool, addressing shortcomings such as blade chatter and throat adjustment, while making use of modern materials for the castings and blade. It incorporates a completely new concept in bench planes, a frog that extends all the way to the sole of the plane. This effective design reduces blade chatter by providing complete blade support and allows a user to quickly adjust the mouth as required. It can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings, or opened for heavier cuts. All of this is done without having to remove the lever cap or anything else from the plane; simply loosen a pair of screws and dial the desired opening with a thumb wheel. The carefully machined fit between frog and sole makes the process fast and accurate. The 47.6mm (2-7/8") x 250mm (9-3/4") ductile cast iron body is fully stress relieved, machined, and surface ground on both the wings and sole for accuracy. The extra-large side wings make for very stable shooting ability.

    The lapped PM-V11 blade is a full 3.2mm (1/8") thick and 35mm (2-3/8") wide. This thick blade, combined with the full-depth frog, virtually eliminates chatter under all conditions. Both the hardwood front knob and tote are generous in size for control and a comfortable grip. The combined feed and lateral adjust lever make blade setting easy and accurate. At approx. 2.27kg (5 lb), this has the mass needed for an effective smoother.

    Made in Canada and Patented.
