The Veritas Bevel-Up Jointer is the largest member of the bevel-up bench plane family. At 560 x 73mm and weighing 3.4kg, it is the answer for jointing edges and flattening large panels. The bevel-up blade configuration results in a plane that is versatile and straightforward to use. The 12° bed angle, coupled with the 25° blade bevel, creates an effective cutting angle of 37°. Simply increasing the blade bevel results in higher cutting angles for improved performance in more difficult grained woods. An adjustable throat plate allows a wide range of mouth adjustment. A unique stop-screw retains mouth settings while preventing blade damage when removing and replacing blades. 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 or better. Supplied with a 57mm wide lapped blade, 4.75mm thick in either O1 or the highly accaimed PM-V11 alloy steel. Other blades are available as optional extras.
|Plane Blade Width||57mm (2.1/4")|
|Plane Sole Length||560mm (22")|

BrilliantI bought this plane to thin down some oak that was to used for showing off my collection of rocks,minerals and shells. I put a 50* blade in it and closed the mouth so it took really thin shavings which worked a treat, I had no tear out and only had to do minimal sanding with some very fine paper.

Top classThis is a top class plane that makes planing awkward timbers a doddle, much better than my standard jointer.

Stunning plane.Superb plane. Brings an ease to flattening boards and I've also used it for final smoothing on large pieces. Excellent performance all round. The lack of extra weight that comes with the bevel down jointers is not a handicap to its performance.

Quality plane but limitedI was looking for a jointer plane. This was the one I originally had my eye on, I thought this is the jointer plane that answers everything. Why would you buy anything else. When I tried it it felt wrong, unbalanced, I had to work more to control it. It worked great on end grain but honestly when compared to the lie Nielsen bevel down jointer with a sharp blade it was the same,definitely not worth buying this for end grain only unless you have miles of end grain to joint. . In the end I went for the lie Nielsen no 8, it glided effortlessly over the timber and the extra weight made it unstoppable. By the time you buy extra blades for the veritas they are near the same price. I tried the bevel up jack and that seemed a lot better to use then the bevel up jointer.
