As an addition to the Veritas range of shoulder planes, the detail rebate plane is primarily useful for small trimming tasks. It is handy for getting into tight spaces, especially cleaning up the bottom of dados or grooves. The plane’s body is ductile cast iron, 75mm long, accurately machined and ground. The sides are flat and square, allowing you to use the plane on its side for trimming tenons. The low 15° bed angle combined with the 30° blade bevel provides a 45° cutting angle exceptional for end grain cutting performance. The plane has a fixed mouth and features a shavings deflector to help prevent the mouth clogging up. A solid brass, one piece lever cap/palm rest holds the full-width blade in place. The lapped blade is made of O-1 tool steel. Made in Canada.

Good, if a Little PriceyWell made, very accurate and sharp, but a little bit expensive. And tiny (but that's the point).

superb toolI bought this a couple of weeks ago - l was looking for a plane that was small enough to clean up and trim very small rabbets on the boxes I make - I bought the 10mm version and it has not disappointed - you are able to take tiny, clean shavings - a superb tool from Veritas
