Veritas spokeshave with flat base

Veritas spokeshaves have been designed for smooth, effective, chatter free shaping of chair spindles, panel edges, paddles and tool handles. The 3.2mm(1/8") thick A2 steel blade, machined lever cap and blade bed achieve chatter free cutting in virtually all conditions. The ductile cast iron body is fitted with Bubinga handles, shaped for comfort and control. The toe serves as a thumb rest allowing the user to choke up on the body to attain exceptional control for fine work. Twin adjustment wheels quickly and accurately control cut depth and skew and shims let you adjust the mouth opening as needed. The flat and round spokeshaves are general workhorses, suited to practically every kind of woodworking. The round spokeshave has a 44.5mm(1.3/4") radius. Each spokeshave weighs about 450g (12 oz.), 267mm(10.1/2") long overall.

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.
