Description

In Detail

Slightly larger than the Veritas small router plane, this tool has the advantage of using the same blades as the full-size router plane. This means any of the blades available for this will fit. The plane can be used as a closed mouth router or the blade can also be used in an outboard configuration, with the blade extending past the body for bullnose applications. The blade-clamping knob uses a wave washer to hold the blade as it is loosened for easy, controlled depth adjustment. An included stainless steel depth-stop collar locks onto the blade shaft to limit cutting depth to a preset maximum. The plane can make cuts up to 1" deep with the depth stop installed or up to 1.3/4" deep without it. The ductile cast iron body has been accurately machined and ground flat. The plane is 3.1/2" wide by 3" deep and weighs about 13oz. A versatile plane, particularly on narrow material or in confined areas. Available with either a 1/4" or 1/2" blade.

A very sturdy and versatile bit of kit

I build acoustic guitars, and I bought this plane primarily to ensure a completely flat base on routed channels for the rosette surrounding the sound hole. I was also reluctant to buy the 'miniature' router plane after reading less than positive negative external reviews, and since the 'medium' model has the benefit of a depth stop (absent on the 'small' router plane), it was a fairly simple choice, especially given the minimal price difference between this and the fairly basic Lie Nielsen 271.

The first thing I noticed is that this has a reassuring weight to it thanks to the cast iron body. It's perfectly flat, and the fact that the blade can be used in an outboard configuration is very much to its credit. I'm yet to actually sharpen and use it (previously I've just been making do with a borrowed old Stanley 271 - so this is something of a Rolls Royce of router planes) but I've no doubt it will do the job perfectly well and without any problem. Will update my review once I get to that stage.

Oh a couple of other things: I am blown away at how fast Axminster got this to me! Having ordered it around 1:30pm on Tuesday, it was in my hands by 4pm Wednesday! Excellent service. Second thing, whilst purely cosmetic, is that this is an extremely attractive little tool and one that will be a treasured part of my collection for, I hope, many years to come. It's what I've come to expect from Veritas and this router plane does not disappoint. If you're in the market for one of these, whilst this isn't the cheapest one available, it is probably the best value, and as such I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
