Veritas - Plane - Low Angle Smoothing PlaneVERPLALOASMOO1
Veritas - Plane - Low Angle Smoothing Plane has three key uses. It is used to smooth surfaces, preferably taking a diagonal cut, partly across and partly along the grain and is excellent for end-grain work.
With its generous side wings, it is ideal for shooting mitres. The low cutting angle of 37 degrees minimizes fibre tearing.
With a bed angle of 12 degrees, this is a bevel-up plane, like a low-angle block. It features an adjustable mouth with a unique stop-screw, a combined feed and lateral adjustment knob for blade setting, and a generous front knob and rear handle.
The ductile cast iron body is 254 x 63mm (10" X 2.5"). Overall weight is just over 1.1kg (3.5lb). The 25 degree bevel blade is 51mm (2") wide by 3mm (1/8") thick, lapped, and made of O1 tool steel.
For working difficult grain, additional blades are available with 38 degree or 50 degree bevels
O1 blades are oil-quenched and double tempered to Rc58-60.
