Veritas Low-Angle Block Plane
The Veritas low-angle block plane has a 12° bed angle and low cutting angle of 37° that excels at working end grain. It has high side wings, ideal for shooting, finger grips in each side for better control, and a combined blade advance and lateral adjust that is the most sensitive and accurate available. Two blade-guide screws prevent blade shifting. Its compact 6-3/8" long by 2" wide ductile cast iron body can take hard knocks, and the adjustable nosepiece does not extend past the body, avoiding unwanted blade shifts if the plane is dropped. Weighs 1-3/4 lbs and includes a lapped, 1/8" thick by 1-5/8" wide, 25° blade, in either A2 or O1 tool steel.
