This standard version is made of spheroidal cast iron and has a pressure-injection diecast cap. Plane body and cap are powder-coated. Stainless steel adjustment screws.
Thanks to its streamlined shape this plane is comfortable in the hand. The lever cap is integrated with the body form; the large contact area for the palm and the finger grip indentations on the side wings provide good comfort and control. Large stainless-steel adjustment and locking screws make setting easy. The extra thick A2 or PM-V11 steel blade is set at a 12° angle in the milled frog. It features a single central knob for feed and lateral adjustment like the legendary Norris planes. Ductile cast iron body, perfectly flat sole, square to the sides. Blade angle 12°, bevel angle 23°, resulting in a cutting angle of 35°.
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. Veritas planes are optionally available with PM-V11 blades. (The Custom series models are equipped with PM-V11 blades as standard). Two setscrews on the sides constrain the blade laterally, keeping it in place regardless of the type of stress applied. Unless otherwise stated, the blade is angled at 45°. With their material combination of finely-ground or black-coated cast iron bodies, polished brass setscrews and beautiful precious wood handles, these planes are also pleasing to the eye.

The DICTUM wax for planes is not only used to prevent metal planes from rusting with long-lasting effect, but also reduces the friction between the plane sole and the workpiece. The application of stains, oils & lacquers is not affected....
