This is Veritas' redesigned small plough plane. While it still excels at cutting grooves, rabbets and tongues, it now has the ability to cut decorative beading (beading blades available soon).
Closest in size to the classic Record #044 plane, the preferred size of the old-style plough planes, it has a 6-5/8" long fence that registers solidly to the workpiece and is through-drilled to accommodate the addition of a wooden fence extension.
The asymmetric fence grip is sculpted to comfortably fit the natural curvatures of the hand. Double guide rods and a special collet locking system prevent the fence from racking. Large brass knobs make adjustments fast and easy without need for tools; the fence can be offset from flush to 1½" from the 1/4" blade.
The adjustable shoe, secured directly by a brass knob, controls the depth of the groove or rabbet (maximum 1/2" deep) and has relieved edges to avoid marking your work.
The large wooden rear tote offers a solid, comfortable grip, and the 9" long ductile cast-iron body weighs 1¾lb and is machined with a 45° blade bed. Supplied with a 1/4" wide lapped A2 tool steel blade, the plane is available in the right-handed version. !!
Additional standard blades are available separately in 1/8", 3/16", 5/16" and 3/8" or 4mm, 5mm, 6mm 7mm, 8mm and 10mm widths. We also offer wider blades (up to 3/4" and 18mm) as well as specialty blades for cutting tongues. For blades over 3/8" wide and all tongue blades, a wide-blade conversion kit is required. See below for more information on our blades and conversion kits, and to purchase them individually.
We offer the plane alone or in combination with blade sets. The Imperial standard set includes the small plough plane with 1/4" blade plus 1/8", 3/16", 5/16" and 3/8" blades.
