This size of router plane is ideal for sinking furniture hinges and locks, inlays as well as precisely cutting any type of recess. The blade can be fixed centrally, enclosed by the sole, or close to the edge with an open sole for cutting in corners. A spring-loaded blade-clamping collar allows precise depth adjustment. All available blades of the large Veritas router plane can also be used in this model. Because of the square profile, the blade cannot twist in the iron body, even when removing large shavings. Comes with depth stop. 90 x 76 mm.
The corporate philosophy of Canadian tool manufacturer Veritas aims to develop new adjustment mechanisms and enhance historic plane design. With bodies made of stress-relieved spheroidal cast iron, these tools are highly resistant to cracking and distortion. Their soles are perfectly plane and trued at right angles to the sides. Their thick blades of high-strength A2 steel are hardened to 60-62 HRC and additionally subjected to a special low-temperature process to achieve a finer grain. Two setscrews on the sides constrain the blade laterally, keeping it in place regardless of the type of stress applied. Unless otherwise specified, the blade is angled at 45°. With their material combination of finely-ground or black-coated cast iron bodies, polished brass setscrews and beautiful bubinga handles, these planes are also pleasing to the eye.
