Description

The Veritas Low Angle Block Plane stands apart from many others. Its 12° bed angle and low cutting angle of 37° excel at working end grain. It has higher side wings ideal for shooting, finger grips in each side for better control, and a combined blade advance and lateral adjust that is the most sensitive and accurate available. Two blade guide screws prevent blade shifting. Its compact 162mm long by 50mm wide ductile cast iron body can take hard knocks and the adjustable nosepiece does not extend past the body. It weighs 790g(1.3/4lb.) and includes a lapped 3.2mm thick by 42mm wide, 25° blade in a choice of steels (O1, A2 or PM-V11. For working difficult wood, 38° and 50° bevel blades are also available. The A2 toothed blade (38° bevel) works the most difficult grain, especially knots. The small, square teeth leave a textured surface that can be smoothed with a finely set plane or a scraper. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 micro inches) or better.
