Description

In Detail

This small, low angle block plane is ideal for trim carpentry. At 400g(14oz), it is half the weight of a standard block plane which is a big plus if you carry it in your apron pocket all day. The 140 x 44.5mm ductile cast iron body takes knocks in its 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 O1 or PM-V11 alloy steel. The blades are 2.5mm(0.098") thick (nearly 25% thicker than standard 2mm block plane blades) and 32mm wide.

You just can't buy better!

I bought mine about 8 months ago from the North Shields store. I went in for a Rider low angle block plane; one of the staff there, I think he is called Jason, got me to try the Veritas Apron plane. Wow........I was after something just a bit smaller than the standard block plane and this is it! About 3/4 the size of a standard block plane so it can be used for delicate work. Unfortunately the only PMV 11 blade they had was the one in the plane, so that was offered to me for a reduced price (no complaint there), and I got the plane itself for half price as they were having a sale at the time. Win, win, win. Left the shop like a dog with two dicks, if you don't leave the shop with what you want and better educated then you really need to get a life! I just understand why anyone, no matter what their skill level is would go anywhere else for quality hand tools! You just can't this range, quality or advice for the likes of B&Q, Homebase or any other run of the mill DIY store.

A lovely handful

This fits the hand beautifully, adjusts brilliantly and planes in all kinds of situations excellently. Not having an apron, I keep it in the pocket of an overall. Even if you have a block plane it's worth having a second as you can keep them set for different tasks. My only criticism is that it's to easy to accidently turn the brass knob (the bigger one beneath the handle) that loosens the blade.
