Description

In Detail

The scrub plane is the tool of choice for major stock removal, the first step when flattening rough stock by hand. Much like a low-angle smooth plane, a scrub is not usually used parallel to the grain, but at an angle of 30° or more. The blade edge is ground with a 75mm(3") radius, so that it takes an aggressive cut. This is the tool you use to get stock into a condition where you can then use a smooth plane. The curved cutting edge of the 38mm(1.1/2") wide by 4.7mm(3/16") thick blade gives a distinctive, hand-worked texture to the workpiece. It is sometimes used by timber framers to replicate gouge marks. This is a single-iron tool, meaning there is no cap iron or chip breaker. Set screws along the side prevent the blade from shifting sideways when knots are encountered. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and ground so that the sole is flat. A very refined yet rugged performer. Available with either a high-carbon steel blade (HRC 58-60) or an A2 tool steel blade (HRC 60-62).The Veritas scrub plane measures 273mm(10.3/4") long overall and weighs 1.4kg(3lb).

Fantastically fast flattening

Thanks to this sovereign tool a planer is no longer on top of my wish list for machines. Flattening with a machine is of course quicker than using hand tools, but this scrub plane has made a huge difference.

Ready to use straight from the box, its manufacturing left only one thing that to me could have been improved. The handle (tote) is one size too tall for me, resulting in it being pushed into my wrist as I plane, where it compresses a nerve which then responds with sending tingling sensations. My hands are probably a bit below the male average, so most will supposedly not have this issue.
It’s a highly effective tool, and flattening beech for a 1.5 x 0.7 m kitchen top I found to be quick and requiring far less effort than I had expected. Actually, I found that quite aggressive cuts were fully feasible. Another positive experience has been that hand flattening takes less off the stock when what a planer does. Rather badly warped pieces lost 6 – 7 mm when using hand tools, compared to 10 – 12 mm when using machine planing and thicknessing, and given the prices of hardwood the less waste the better.

The quality of this scrub plane to me seems impeccable, as usual with Veritas’ products. It’s easy to assemble. Sharpening is facilitated by marking the bevel (camfered to a 3” radius) with a filt pen.

Now, why not go for a band saw?

Great Plane

I purchased this plane a few months ago, the plane blade is nice and think and comes in a sealed plastic bag to or prevent any opportunity for oxidisation. The blade was sufficiently sharp to use straight from the packet. I love this tool, I use it predominantly as a roughing plane for taking off the worst twist, or bow from planks before running them through my P/T. It's a simply brilliant and extremely fast way of getting things almost flat with very little effort or time. An unusual thing to do I'm sure your thinking, well, I mainly use seasoned oak in large section. Lifting the planks onto and off a P/T is heavy work especially if your only partially feeding to remove a bow. This takes all the hard work out of it, and a couple of minutes with the scrub in the mightiest stuff soon takes off the offending parts. I find that I reach for the scrub plane almost every time I start with rough stuff unless I'm particularly lucky to get very straight stuff.

The blade is really good quality and holds an edge for a very long time. Highly recommend adding this to your tool kit
