This version of the Veritas Small Plough Plane excels at cutting grooves, rebates and tongues. It also has the ability to cut decorative beading. The Veritas Small Plough Plane features a 168mm (6-5/8") long fence that registers solidly to the workpiece. Double guide rods and a special collet locking system prevent the fence from racking. The fence is through-drilled, allowing you to add a wooden fence extension. The large wooden rear tote offers a solid, comfortable grip. The 225mm (9") long ductile cast iron body weighs 795g (1-3/4lb) and has a machined 45° blade bed. Large brass knobs make adjustments fast and easy without need for tools. The fence offset with a 6.35mm (1/4") blade is from flush up to a maximum of 38mm (1-1/2"). The adjustable depth stop has relieved edges to avoid marking your work. Secured directly by a brass knob, it controls the depth of the groove or rebate (maximum 12.7mm (1/2") deep.
Supplied with a 6.35mm (1/4") wide lapped A2 tool steel blade.

Superb!I've been struggling with an old Stanley plough plane that had an unpleasant Aluminuim body for some time. I bought it in an Antique shop for £30.00 and thought I had a reasonable deal. However the Aluminium body marks the workpeice quite severely, and the overall design and use is just not that good really. So I dug deep and bought the Veritas to replace it.

Another quality Veritas toolI am a Veritas fan, and every purchase makes me a bigger fan . This plough plane is no exception. It is beautifully designed and finished and is a joy to use. I sold a mint vintage stanley No 50 combination plane on eBay to justify the purchase of this and there is no comparison. Wonderfully engineered, sleek lines and smooth in use, to me it is the Aston Martin of plough planes
