Veritas miniature low angle block plane
This version of the Veritas low angle block plane is about a third the size of the original. At just under 60mm long and 19mm wide, it is a useful size for small-scale work or where a larger plane would be difficult to use. The low 12° bed angle combined with the 25° blade bevel gives it a cutting angle of 37°, making it also suitable for end-grain use. The stainless steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the 12.7mm wide A2 blade with precision. The body is made from investment-cast stainless steel, and has a fixed mouth, machined sides and a ground sole. Weighs 48g. Made in Canada. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box.
There are three steel types available for veritas planes. For most of the planes we offer for sale we have opted for the new PM-VII type because we believe it suits the needs of most of our customers. The following describes the virtues of each type of steel.
01 steel is easy to hone and a very fine edge achieved relatively quickly.
A2 steel takes a little longer to sharpen but retains its edge for longer.
PM-V11 alloy steel is easier to sharpen than A2 and hold an extremely durable cutting edge for up to twice as long.
Veritas range offer some of the most accurately made planes available today. This combined with some interesting and unique aspects to the design make them an ideal choice for the serious craftsman in wood.
Plane bodies are made from stress relieved ductile cast iron surface ground to very fine tolerances. Where possible we supply planes fitted with the new PM-VII blades as standard for extended edge holding on all types of wood.
Most planes have adjustable mouths and blade adjustment is via a single screw/lever ‘Norris’ style mechanism that adjusts the blade up/down and laterally. Grub screws from the side ensure correct blade alignment.
