Veritas Smoothing Plane, Low Angle, Small c/w PM-V11 Blade
With a size comparable to a #3 bench plane, the Veritas Small Low-Angle Smoothing Plane is 9" (228mm) long, 2-5/16" (59mm) wide and weighs only 2 lb 12 oz. (1.25Kg).
Smaller and lighter than a full-size Smoothing Plane, it is easier to manoeuvre and is less fatiguing to use for extended periods. Furthermore, since the blade is narrower, at 1-3/4" (44.5mm) wide, cuts are far easier to push through.
Like it's full-size cousins, this plane is suberb for final finishing of surfaces, end-grain work and for shooting mitres. The machined and surface-ground ductile cast iron body has a 12° bed angle and a movable toe that is fully enclosed by the body casting.
The locking front knob controls the toe to set the mouth opening, while an unobtrusive stop-screw in the throat allows repeatable mouth setting and prevents contact between the blade and toe. The Norris-type adjuster mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments, making your blade setting accurate and easy. Set screws on either side of the blade prevent shifting in use. The front knob and rear handle are hardwood.
Yielding an effective cutting angle of 37° to minimise fibre tearing, the included 25º bevel PM-V11® blade is 1/8" (3.2mm) thick and correctly lapped.
For working difficult grain, optional 38° and 50° bevel blades are also available.
Made in Canada. Patented.
