Veritas small shoulder plane with PM-VII blade

The Veritas Small Shoulder Plane is designed for one-handed use. It is a cross between a medium shoulder plane and a bullnose plane. The sole is 155mm long by 13mm wide and the plane weighs 500g. Its size makes it very useful for a multitude of tasks. Jobs such as trimming shoulders for a perfect fit to cleaning the bottom of dados are easily accomplished. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and finely ground. The sole and sides are flat and square, allowing the plane to be used on its side for accurately shooting tenon shoulders. The rounded lever cap and crowned back fit comfortably in the hand. The plane's micro-adjustable toe allows very fine setting of the width of the mouth for fine shavings and minimum tear-out. The low bed angle of 15° combined with 25° blade bevel results in a cutting angle of 40° giving exceptionally clean end grain cutting. Set screws along the side enable you to accurately position the blade perfectly flush with the side of the plane.

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.
