The Veritas Hinge Mortice plane can accurately cut the recesses for door hinges or strike plates in a fraction of the time it takes to set up a router or chop them out with a chisel. The precision blade depth adjuster ensures an accurate, uniform depth. The ductile cast iron body has been accurately machined and ground flat. The large wooden knobs are positioned to provide comfort and excellent control. This plane uses the same blades as the large Veritas router plane so all the blades for the router will also fit this plane. Full instructions are supplied for laying out and cutting a hinge mortice. A blade holder is supplied as an aid to sharpening the HCS 19mm blade.
