Product Description

The mass of this Veritas Shooting 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.

Customer Reviews

By Steve Turner on 9th April 2024
"This was an expensive plane which I've put off buying for some time. Classic Hand Tools had the best price I could find, and their delivery was super fast. But like most things you get what you pay for. This shooting plane is awesome, forget making do with one of your other bench planes on its side, this thing squares off large thick section hardwood like a hot knife through butter. Better still it's good to go out of the box with a pre-sharpened blade."
