The initial idea behind this miniature version of the Veritas medium shoulder plane was to challenge the limitations of the materials, design and manufacturing processes (not to mention the patience of the engineers!). It weighs a mere 48g and measures 63.5mm long by 6.3mm wide, it is the smallest plane Veritas have made to date. It is fully functional, comfortable to hold and easy to manoeuvre and control. A remarkably effective plane when it comes to fine trimming or cleaning the bottoms of narrow dados. Investment cast from stainless steel, the body has a fixed mouth and accurately machined and surface ground sole and sides. A stainless steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the full-width A2 blade (1.5mm thick) with precision. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box. Made in Canada.

A surprisingly useful toolI bought one a couple of years ago (Axminster special deal price £25) thinking it may occasionally prove handy. In practice I use it regularly, particularly for truing up small cabinet joinery. A cracking little precision tool but it is finger operated - note the dimensions!
