The Veritas Bullnose Plane is two planes in one, serving as a bullnose or a chisel plane when required. An adjustable set screw in the toe acts as a stop to accurately set the mouth opening. When you switch configurations, it repositions the toe to the exact opening previously set, so you will never accidentally jam the nose against the blade edge. The plane is 120mm(4.3/4") long by 25mm(1") wide and weighs just over 550g. Shaped to fit comfortably in the hand, the low, broad lever cap meets your palm, and your forefinger rests in the toe pocket for extra control. For those who do not own a shoulder plane, this is probably the best first purchase. The plane is supplied with a lapped blade in O1 or the highly acclaimed PM-V11 alloy. These 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 microinches) or better.
