The Veritas® large shoulder plane (a specialized rabbet plane) is the latest and largest in our line of shoulder planes. Its size and mass make it perfect for trimming breadboard tenons, adjusting shoulders, or even paring down tenon cheeks. At 8¼" long, 1¼" wide and weighing 3¾ lb, it brings both authority and precision to larger work. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and ground so that the sole and sides are flat and square.
Veritas have devised a new lever cap that fits properly in the palm, incorporating a bubinga lever cap knob that pivots 180°, and adding a multi-positional front knob that can be mounted on the top or on either side. You can also grip the plane in the recesses cast into the side of the plane. The combination of these added features ensures a solid, comfortable grip for all users in all applications.
The plane's adjustable toe lets you narrow the mouth for very fine shavings with minimum tear-out. The low bed angle of 15° combined with the 25° blade bevel results in a cutting angle of 40° for exceptional end-grain cutting performance. Set screws along the side enable you to accurately position the blade and do not require adjustment when replacing the blade after sharpening. For those who want the performance of a superior shoulder plane, this tool offers the solution. Unfortunately this item is not currently available.
