Veritas miniature shoulder plane

The initial idea behind this miniature version of the Veritas medium shoulder plane was to challenge the limitations of the materials, design and manufacturing processes (not to mention the patience of the engineers!). It weighs a mere 48g and measures 62mm long by 6.3mm wide, it is the smallest plane Veritas have made to date. It is fully functional, comfortable to hold and easy to manoeuvre and control. A remarkably effective plane when it comes to fine trimming or cleaning the bottoms of narrow dados. Investment cast from stainless steel, the body has a fixed mouth and accurately machined and surface ground sole and sides. A stainless steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the full-width A2 blade (1.5mm thick) with precision. 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.
