Veritas side rebate plane

The Side Rebate Plane is used for cleaning up or trimming sidewalls of rebates, dados or grooves. It has a practical dual-blade configuration, coupled with an ingenious pivoting sculpted to fit comfortably handle that permits right or left-hand use to accommodate grain direction. The thin sole functions much like a skate, allowing use in slots as narrow as 4.8mm(3/16") and to a depth of 12.7mm(1/2"). The toe is removable for use in stopped dados and has a fixing screw that is trapped to prevent loss. The depth stop helps orient and stabilise the plane during use and is both height adjustable and reversible. The accurately machined, 115mm(4-1/2") long ductile cast iron plane body and the two O1 tool steel blades (HRC 58-60) are lapped. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 microinches) or better. Weight 450g.

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.
