This version of the Veritas low angle block plane is about a third the size of the original. At just under 60mm long and 19mm wide, it is a useful size for small-scale work or where a larger plane would be difficult to use. The low 12° bed angle combined with the 25° blade bevel gives it a cutting angle of 37°, making it also suitable for end-grain use. The stainless steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the 12.7mm wide A2 blade with precision. The body is made from investment-cast stainless steel, and has a fixed mouth, machined sides and a ground sole. Weighs 48g. Made in Canada. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box.
