Veritas Jack Rebate Plane Ref: VP5301

This plane cuts large-scale rebating down to size. The body is 385mm long and the blade extends the full width (57mm) of the body. It is suitable for very large rebates and fielded or bevelled panels. The long sole and substantial mass help ensure accuracy.

The 4.8mm thick bevel-up blade makes right or left-handed corner cuts cleanly and accurately. Adjustable scoring spurs on either side of the body scribe the cut ahead of the blade, minimising tear out on cross-grain work. Mounted on two steel fence rods with brass collet screws, the 185mm long removable fence can be set up to 133mm from the shoulder. The rear tote tilts and locks to either side for knuckle clearance. The mouth is adjustable, a narrow slit for fine shavings or opened for heavier cuts.

A Norris-style mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments for easy, precise blade setting. Includes a lapped A2 blade, other blades are available in O1 or PM-V11 steel.

Made in Canada.

Veritas Detail Palm Plane Ref: V-95291

The Veritas Detail Palm Planes are small enough to get into tight spaces and allow great control for working fine detail.

The 32mm diameter Bubinga palm knob is height-adjustable for better in-hand registration or removable for work in tight spaces. The bodies are just over 16mm wide by 38mm long and the blades are 9.5mm wide. The investment-cast steel body has a 45° bed angle and a fixed mouth, and uses a brass retention screw to secure the included 30° bevel A2 tool steel blade (1.5mm thick by 9.5mm wide).

Available in four versions: flat, concave, double convex and convex. The curved versions have a 13mm radius across the body; the double convex is curved with a 100mm radius along its length.

Veritas Miniature Edge Plane Ref: 05P81.01

A 1/3-scale version of the current Veritas iron edge plane, which is the third-generation design of a model they first produced in 1986, this is a fully functional miniature. Useful for fine trimming work on thin stock up to 3/8" thick, such as with small-scale boxes or maquettes, it fits the hand well, making it easy to control under fingertip pressure.

The 2-3/8" long body and lever cap are machined, investment-cast stainless steel. The 0.060" thick by 1/2" wide A2 steel blade has a 25° bevel angle, and, like the original, is bedded at 12° and skewed at 30°. The blade position and depth of cut are easily set by hand. Weighs a mere 1.6 oz.

Presented in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box, this diminutive edge plane makes a great gift for any woodworker or tool aficionado.

Made in Canada. Price includes VAT.

Veritas Side Rabbet Plane Ref: VP4401

The Veritas Side Rabbet Plane is used for cleaning up or trimming sidewalls of rabbets, dadoes or grooves to yield a perfect fit with its mate. It has a practical dual-blade configuration, coupled with an ingenious pivoting handle that permits right- or left-hand use to accommodate grain direction.

The thin sole functions much like a skate, allowing use in slots as narrow as 3/16" and to a depth of 1/2". The toe is removable for use in stopped dadoes and has a fixing screw that is trapped to prevent loss. The depth stop helps orient and stabilize the plane during use and is both height adjustable and reversible (simply loosen the screw and rotate the stop without removing it from the body).

Sculpted to fit the hand comfortably, the handle has a spring-loaded pivot for sure positioning – it won't move accidentally in use. The accurately machined, 4-1/2" long ductile cast iron plane body and the two O1 tool steel blades (Rc58-60) are lapped. 

Price: 134.95 (Including VAT at 20%)

Veritas Side Rabbet Plane


Veritas Skew Rabbet Ref: VP45

Like the Stanley #289 that inspired it, it is configured with a blade skewed at a 30° angle to reduce cut resistance, aid in shaving clearance, and help pull the fence tight against the workpiece. Because the blade sits flush with the side of the plane body, corner cuts are clean and accurate.

Adjustable in two axes (vertical and horizontal) for depth and projection, the scoring spur sits ahead of the blade and is used to reduce tear-out on cross-grain work. The spur can be recessed for work with the grain.

The 7-3/8" long fence is through-drilled to accept a wooden extension. Double guide rods and a special collet locking system prevent the fence from racking, and the large brass knobs allow fast and easy adjustments without tools. The fence can be positioned to allow a maximum rabbet width of 1-1/2".

The adjustable shoe controls the depth of cut to a maximum 3/4" deep (or you can remove the shoe for no depth limitation), and has relieved edges to avoid marking your work.

Supplied with a lapped A2 tool steel blade that is 1/8" thick and just over 1-5/8" wide. The depth-adjustment mechanism is fast and accurate, with an independent traveller to prevent lateral shifting of the blade. Set screws along the side allow repeatable blade positioning.

The large wooden handles are solid and comfortable to hold. The 9-3/4" long ductile cast iron body is machined with a 45° blade bed and weighs 3-1/2 lb.

The plane is available in left- and right-hand versions. You may need only the version that suits your dominant hand, though neither model is exclusively for left- or right-handed users. They are in fact complementary since having both lets you accommodate any grain direction.

Veritas Detail Rabbet Plane Ref: VP75

The detail rebate plane is primarily useful for small trimming tasks. It is handy for getting into tight spaces, especially cleaning up the bottom of dados or grooves. The plane’s body is ductile cast iron, 75mm long, accurately machined and ground. The sides are flat and square, allowing you to use the plane on its side for trimming tenons. The low 15-degree bed angle combined with the 30-degree blade bevel provides a 45-degree cutting angle exceptional for end-grain cutting performance. The plane has a fixed mouth and features a shavings deflector to help prevent the mouth clogging up. A solid brass, one-piece lever cap/palm rest holds the full-width blade in place. The lapped blade is made of O-1 tool steel.

Available in five widths, 6mm, 1/4", 8mm (5/16"), 3/8" and 10mm.

Veritas Small Plough Plane Ref: VP5101-5

The Veritas Small Plough Plane is ideal for quickly cutting grooves and rebayes, such as on drawer & box bottoms, cabinet backs and in frame and panel construction. The 6-5/8" long fence registers solidly to the workpiece and is through-drilled to accommodate the addition of a wooden fence extension.

The asymmetric fence grip has been sculpted to comfortably fit the natural curvatures of the hand. Double guide rods and a special collet locking system prevent the fence from racking. The large brass knobs make adjustments fast and easy without need for tools; the fence can be offset from flush to 1-1/2" from the 1/4" blade. The adjustable shoe controls the depth of cut (maximum 1/2" deep), and has relieved edges to avoid marking your work.

A wave washer in the locking mechanism steadies the shoe during adjustment. Best used in the direction of the grain, The plane comes with A2 tool steel blades 1/8", 3/16", 1/4" 5/16" and 3/8".

The large wooden rear tote offers a solid, comfortable grip, and the 9" long ductile cast iron body weighs 1-3/4 lb and is machined with a 45° blade bed.

An excellent and quieter alternative for work often performed with a router.

The plane comes with five A2 tool steel blades 1/8", 3/16", 1/4" 5/16" and 3/8".

Veritas Beading Tool Ref: VP0450

Hand beading, fluting or reeding in hard or soft woods is easy with our new beading tool. Using one of the standard cutters or one that you custom shape, you can put fine detail in furniture quickly and accurately.

Cutters are held against the body with a clamping bar and are adjustable for height and fence offset. Nearly 2-3/4" long, the fence has two mounting locations to provide up to a 1" blade offset and is positional to expose one of three bearing surfaces: flat for straight and convex applications, curved for slightly concave and waved edges, and bullnose for scribing use on more complex profiles.

Both the fence and clamping bar are reversible for left- or right-hand use and to handle any grain direction. Designed to cut on the push stroke, but usable with a pull stroke.

The body, clamp bar and fence are precision-machined investment cast steel. The leading and trailing edges of the sole are radiused for smooth travel. The generous handles are African rosewood with brass fittings; the adjustable ball knob pivots 90° to allow varying grip.

Supplied with a 3/32" radius single-point cutter and five blank cutters. The 5/8" wide cutters, made from hardened spring steel, are the same used with our wooden beading tool for compatibility. Since both ends of each cutter can be used, this gives you a dozen possibilities.

Veritas Scrub Plane Ref: VP350

The scrub plane is the tool of choice for major stock removal, the first step when flattening rough stock by hand. Much like a low-angle smooth 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" radius, so that it takes an aggressive cut. This is the tool you use to get stock into a condition where you then can use a smooth plane. The 3" radius of the 1-1/2" wide by 3/16" thick blade gives a distinctive, hand-worked texture to the workpiece. It is sometimes 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. Available with either a high-carbon steel blade (Rc58-60) or an A2 tool steel blade (Rc60-62).

The Veritas® scrub plane measures 11-1/4" long overall and weighs 3 lb. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and ground so that the sole is flat. A very refined yet rugged performer.

Veritas Edge Trimming Planes

Veritas Edge Trimming Planes

Veritas Edge-Trimming Planes Ref: 05P03

Veritas now offer a left-hand model of their right-hand iron edge-trimming plane. If you have already purchased the right-hand model, you may want to consider its complement. Having both models will let you handle any grain direction.

Edge-trimming planes are used for final trimming cuts on jointed boards to ensure smooth edges at exactly 90° to the face, and for working end grain. In many instances you will need only one model; the appropriate choice is often based on which of your hands is dominant.

However, neither model is exclusively for left or right handed users, as the planes are in fact complementary. Having both right and left hand models becomes advantageous when you need to accommodate grain running in opposite directions on the same board, but have only one true reference face, such as when working on a length of moulding.

Made in Canada, the planes are durable ductile iron, with a 12° bed angle and 30° blade skew. The 1/8" thick blades are 1-1/4" wide to let you plane material up to 1" wide, and are available in A2 steel.

The depth-adjustment mechanism is a large thumb wheel and an independent traveller, resulting in fast and accurate depth setting with no blade skewing. Set screws along the side prevent the blade from shifting when knots are encountered.

The fence is drilled to allow blocks to be added or to affix a wooden wedge for cutting controlled bevels, such as in boat building. Each weighs 1 lb 6 oz.

Sold individually or in pairs (right and left for the same type of blade steel).

Veritas Hinge Mortice Plane Ref: V506360

The Veritas Hinge Mortice plane can accurately cut the recesses for door hinges or strike plates in a fraction of the time it takes to set up a router or chop them out with a chisel. The precision blade depth adjuster ensures an accurate, uniform depth. The ductile cast iron body has been accurately machined and ground flat. The large wooden knobs are positioned to provide comfort and excellent control.

This plane uses the same blades as the large Veritas router plane so all the blades for the router will also fit this plane.

Full instructions are supplied for laying out and cutting a hinge mortice. A blade holder is supplied as an aid to sharpening the HCS 19mm blade.

Veritas Cabinetmakers Trimming Plane Ref: V506303

Commonly called a chisel plane, this 165mm long by 44mm wide plane has an exposed full width blade that lets you work up to adjacent surfaces. It excels at making paring cuts in places where a chisel would be awkward or impossible to use, making short work of cleaning up corners and joints inside carcasses. Because the blade can be set level with the sole, you can also trim plugs or small inlays flush without marring the surrounding wood.

Cast from tough ductile iron, the sole and sides are accurately machined and surface ground to be flat and square, with recesses cast into the side for grip. The large angled rear knob seats comfortably in the palm. It has a large thumb wheel for depth adjustment and 4 set screws accurately register the blade in the body.

It comes with a lapped O1 steel blade hardened to Rc 58-60. The 20° bevel blade coupled with the 15° bed angle yields an effective cutting angle of 35°, severing end-grain fibres cleanly and minimising tearing. Weighs 0.544kg.

Veritas Cabinetmakers Trimming Plane


Veritas Shooting Plane Ref: VP54

The mass of this plane, its long base and low centre of gravity make it both stable and effective. Tipping the scales at just over 3. 5kg and just under 400mm long, it is a substantial plane; you will appreciate the authority it provides when shooting.

The body is fully stress-relieved, ductile cast iron, with a sole and running surface machined flat and square to one another; the 54mm wide running surface fits the classic Stanley #52 chute board. Three set screws let you compensate for slight inaccuracies in a wooden shooting board by adjusting the blade square to the workpiece. Loosening a brass locking knob allows you to adjust the mouth opening, while a stop-screw retains mouth settings and prevents contact between the blade and movable toe. You can set the adjustable rear tote at a comfortable angle for use with the sole vertical or horizontal as on a normal plane.

A bevel-up plane, it has a blade skewed 20° to reduce cutting resistance, producing a shearing cut that leaves a neat, crisp finish on end grain. Combined with the 12° bed angle and 25° blade bevel, this yields an effective cutting angle of 35°. The tool includes a lapped blade of PM-V11 tool steel.

A Norris-style mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments for easy, precise blade setting.

Available in right and left-handed versions.
