In Detail

With a ductile cast iron body accurately machined and ground flat to a high standard, the Veritas Router Plane is ideal for cutting dadoes and grooves or for cleaning out areas to a precise depth. Blade depth is set by a fine screw feed and a positive locking depth stop sets depth of cut. A spring-loaded collar holds the blade, allowing easy blade adjustment and removal. The knobs are positioned for comfort and control. Includes two high carbon steel cutters: a two-piece 12.7mm (1/2") straight forged blade and a two-piece 12.7mm (1/2") pointed blade (for final smoothing). Weight 900g (2 lb), base size 142 x 80mm. The optional fence (available separately) which is made of stainless steel and aluminum can be positioned on either side of the plane and will work on both straight and curved pieces. In addition to using for dadoes or grooves, the router plane is the perfect tool for inlay or for cleaning out areas for hardware installation, where fine control is critical. If you would like to make a pair of custom handles, a hardware kit that includes two turned brass connectors, two hanger bolts, a hex bolt is available.

Hit the nail on the head

I need to find a tool that could help me do the works of inlay butterfly so I purchased Veritas router plane and also a 1/4 "blade.
I'm not a craftsman the woodworking is my hobby.
I must admit that with this planer I work much easier, faster, and not only for butterfly inlay but also for other jobs where you

need to make precise slot without having to use the electric router. I think you can better control the work with Veritas router

Working with the Veritas router plane is pleasant. Very compact shape, comfortable grip, perfect weight of the plane, ground sole

smooth and flat are features that allow you to control it really well, and if you cut small thicknesses at a time the plane flies over

the wood and slot remains very smooth.

The installation system, adjustment, and the lock blade is simple and intuitive in the operation. in less than one minute you can

change and adjust the blade perfectly.

I would have preferred having Veritas Optional Fence already included because it is a very useful item and it adds possibilities for

more interesting jobs.

I hoped I could to purchase the guide with the planer, but it was not available, I wanted to save money on shipping but It was out

stock. In my opinion It is useful and I'm going to buy it as soon as available.

The order and delivery where handled in a very accurate way by Axminster.
The overseas shipping with an excellent tracking just four days for Italy is something that a professional seller of Axminster can

give you.

It is a usefull tools and money well spent !!!!!!

Beautiful piece of Kit

As a hobbyist the Veritas router seemed a little expensive for the number of times I envisaged using it, but since delivery I have used it for tenon joint clean up, instead of my Festool router on tasks and for other work. It is a quality tool, easy to use and the fence is a real aid. I read the description incorrectly and ordered a 1/2 inch pointed blade only to find that there was one included with the router, I have returned this for a 1/4 straight blade. Customer services were very helpful in this process. Making a special box to keep it in.

Good router plane

This tool is beautifully made, feels good in the hand and is intuitive to use. It can accommodate both 1/4 and 1/2 inch blades and be used for routing in the field of the router for stability or, simply by removing the blade, rotating the attachment mechanism 180, and reinserting the blade facing to the outside of the tool, up against a surface. Adjustments are good and the depth stop is really useful. The fence is a little bit fiddly but it works ok. I did find the locking mechanism doesn't always hold the 1/4 inch cutter securely. I remedied this by tightening the knob, wiggling the cutter the check if secure and if not, tightening again. Sounds simple but it's a bit of a pain every time you increase the cutter depth. Otherwise a first rate tool.

feeling duped

Just received this router plane as a fathers day present. As I didn't personally buy this I didn't read all the blurb and thought as you would that the side fence as plainly pictured came with the plane.
Don't be fooled as I was, it doesn't.
Axminster, get your act together.
Now, that being said, straight out of the box, the plane oozes quality, It has a reassuring weight to it, all the adjustments are wonderfully smooth and the handles are a joy.
Can't wait to get some shavings and add quality to my work.

Couldn't be more pleased

Having two Lie-Nielsen planes, I had trouble debating whether I should get one of their Router Planes or this Veritas one. What swung it for me was knowing I would have less trouble sharpening the (removable) Veritas blades than the Lie-Nielsen ones. There were no reviews for it on here until Chippy's review on the day mine arrived, so I was delighted to read his praise for this one over the L-N version. I can only comment on the Veritas one and I am absolutely delighted with it. It's beautifully made and is a complete joy to use. I love it.
