  • A cap iron serves to stiffen a plane blade, helping to damp vibration and reduce the potential for blade chatter
  • The Veritas 1/8" thick Replacement Cap Iron for Stanley/Record #8 Hand Planes is  made of corrosion-resistant A2 steel
  • The leading edge of the cap iron is machined with a relief angle to ensure it always contacts the face of the blade, so no gap can form
  • The cap irons are available separately or paired with the Veritas A2, O1 or PM-V11® blades
  • Veritas Bench Plane Blades are 0.100" thick, 25% thicker than the industry standard of 0.080"
  • Increased thickness reduces chatter
  • All are 7" long with a 30° bevel
