Self-made or bought, shooting boards usually come with a single fixed angle, most commonly 90°, or occasionally 45° for mitres. Neither of which give you any other options to fine tune different angles. Veritas have come up with a solution with their usual flawless design and high quality construction.
An adjustable fence lets you plane at any angle up to 60° from square. Indents at common angles and a spring loaded plunger simplify setting at 0°, 18°, 22.5°, 25.7°, 30°, 36°, 45° and 60°. For other angles, a locking handle secures the fence in position. A vernier scale on the quadrant lets you set with complete accuracy. A slot in the face of the fence accepts a wooden sacrificial extension made from an off-cut, to prevent spelching by supporting stock from behind.
The 610mm long x 9.5mm deep shooting track fits the Veritas shooting plane and Veritas shooting sander. For other planes, the track is adjustable from 52mm to 57mm wide. Low-friction UHMW strips in the bottom of the track let the plane glide smoothly. The base is 19mm thick Baltic birch plywood, a cleat on the base registers on the edge of your bench to hold it in place. The fence is cast zinc aluminium alloy, with steel and brass fittings. The track is durable aluminium. Size 610mm x 290mm. Made for right-handed use.
