The Veritas Scrub Plane is the tool of choice for quick and effective major stock removal, the first step when flattening rough stock by hand.
Much like a low-angle smoothing plane, a scrub is not usually used parallel to the grain, but at an angle of 30° or more. The blade edge is ground with a 3" (75mm) radius, so that it takes an aggressive cut. This is the tool you use to get stock into a condition where you can then use a smoothing plane. The curved cutting edge of the 1-1/2" (38mm) wide by 3/16" (4.7mm) thick blade, gives a distinctive, hand-worked texture to the workpiece. It is often used by timber framers to replicate gouge marks.
This is a single-iron tool, meaning there is no cap iron or chip breaker. Set screws along the side prevent the blade from shifting sideways when knots are encountered. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and ground so that the sole is flat.
The Veritas Scrub Plane is an extremely refined, yet rugged performer and is available with either a high-carbon steel blade, hardened to RC 58-60, or an A2 Tool Steel Blade hardened to RC 60-62.
The Plane measures 10-3/4" (273mm)in overall length and weighs 3lb (1.4Kg).
