This popular item arose from the need to supply wood in
thicknesses of less than 26mm for a multitude of special
purposes. It is quite rare to find rough sawn lumber under this
thickness because of the difficulty keeping the wood flat and
straight through the drying process.

This stock is re-sawn from thick material that has already been
fully dried, and then accurately drum sanded to the range of
thicknesses listed below. For practical reasons the range of
lengths is normally 800 1200mm and the range of widths is
normally 100 175mm. Sizes beyond these can be produced
to special order subject to an acceptable order size.

Veritas range offer some of the most accurately made planes

available today. This combined with some interesting and
unique aspects to the design make them an ideal choice for the
serious craftsman in wood.

Plane bodies are made from stress relieved ductile cast iron DX60 Block plane
surface ground to very fine tolerances. Where possible we
supply planes fitted with the new PM-VII blades as standard
for extended edge holding on all types of wood.

Most planes have adjustable mouths and blade adjustment is

via a single screw/lever Norris style mechanism that adjusts
the blade up/down and laterally. Grub screws from the side
ensure correct blade alignment.
