Veritas Small Shoulder Plane c/w A2 Blade
Designed to seat perfectly in the hand, the smallest of the Veritas shoulder planes is easily controlled using a one-handed grip. The lever cap wraps around the rear of the body, shrouding the blade adjustment mechanism so it does not obstruct the grip, while acting as a comfortable rest for the palm. The through-hole and textured recesses cast into the side of the body provide grip points for fingers.
The plane weighs 1lb 2oz (510g) and has a 6-1/4" (159mm) long, 1/2" (12.7mm) wide sole. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and ground so that the sole and sides are flat and square.
The low bed angle of 15° combined with the 25° blade bevel results in a cutting angle of 40° for exceptional end-grain cutting. Set screws along the side let you accurately position the blade so it requires no lateral adjustment when replacing the blade after sharpening. The lapped blade is 1/8" (3.2mm) thick, 1/2" (12.7mm) wide, and made of A2 Tool Steel.
The plane’s adjustable toe lets you restrict the mouth for very fine shavings with minimum tear-out.
The shoulder plane (a specialised rebate plane) is the ultimate tool for trimming a joint to a perfect fit. There is no better plane for trimming the shoulder of a tenon to perfection or for rebating work.
