The Veritas router plane is the Stanley #71 reborn with radical improvements. An invaluable tool for work on stopped or through dadoes and grooves, or for any work that requires an area cut to a precise depth. The blade depth is regulated by a fine screw feed that travels 1/32" per turn for precise adjustment, with the resulting depth of cut controlled by a positive locking depth stop. Unique to the Veritas router plane is a spring-loaded blade-clamping collar that holds the blade in position when the collar is loosened. It provides tactile feedback, allowing controlled blade adjustment to a depth of 1".
The ductile cast iron body has been accurately machined and ground flat. Weight is 2lb. The large wooden knobs are positioned to provide both comfort and excellent control.
Includes two cutters: 1/2" straight, and 1/2" pointed (for final smoothing). The optional fence (made of stainless steel and aluminum) can be positioned on either side of the plane and will work on both straight and curved pieces. In addition to using for dadoes or grooves, our router plane is the perfect tool for inlay or intarsia work, or for cleaning out areas for hardware installation, where fine control is critical.
A blade sharpening jig is also included.
The Optional Fence (05P3807) is not included and can be purchased separately.
