The Veritas Detail Palm Planes are small enough to get into tight spaces and allow great control for working fine detail. The 32mm diameter Bubinga palm knob is height-adjustable for better in-hand registration or removable for work in tight spaces. The bodies are just over 16mm wide by 38mm long and the blades are 9.5mm wide. The investment-cast steel body has a 45° bed angle and a fixed mouth, and uses a brass retention screw to secure the included 30° bevel A2 tool steel blade (1.5mm thick by 9.5mm wide). Available in four versions: flat, concave, double convex and convex. The curved versions have a 13mm radius across the body; the double convex is curved with a 100mm radius along its length. Made in Canada.

Great Little PlaneI was amazed at the two star rating, given that this is a Veritas plane, and indeed the first review is complete nonsense. Great little specialist plane, typical Veritas quality and a shout out to Axminster 'cos even with the standard delivery for just £1 it turned up next day.

ReviewsIgnore the previous reviewer who obviously has not taken any time to read the instructions. Great specialist plane and even sharpenable when required ,

UnlessThe blade can't be removed from the plane. So you can't sharpen the blade rendering the plane completely useless. Massive disappointment
