Veritas Apron Plane

  • Ideal for trim carpentry
  • Ductile cast iron body
  • Unique side wings allow for a comfortable firm grip
  • Combined feed and lateral adjustment mechanism makes setting easy and accurate
  • c/w with lapped 25° bevel blade

This small, low-angle block plane is ideal for trim carpentry. At 400g(14oz) it is half the weight of a standard block plane, a big plus if you carry it in your apron pocket all day. The 140 x 44.5mm(5.1/2" x 1.3/4") ductile cast iron body takes knocks in stride. It has good hand feel; unique side wings allow a comfortable firm grip and provide stability for shooting. A combined feed and lateral adjustment mechanism makes setting easy and accurate. 12° bed angle, it comes with a lapped 25° bevel blade made of either A2 or O1 Tool Steel. The O1 blade is 2.5mm(0.098") thick (nearly 25% thicker than standard 2mm(0.080") block plane blades), 38mm(1.1/4") wide, and hardened to HRC 58-60. A 38° A2 toothed blade is available for working difficult grain. The small square teeth leave a textured surface that can be smoothed with a scraper.
