Veritas Large Shoulder Plane
This specialized rabbet plane is the largest in the Veritas line of shoulder planes. Its size and mass make it perfect for trimming breadboard tenons, adjusting shoulders, or even paring down tenon cheeks. At 8-1/4" long and 1-1/4" wide, and weighing 3-3/4 lb, it brings both authority and precision to larger work.
Typical shoulder planes are awkward to handle and control; Lee Valley has overcome this by shaping a new lever cap that fits in the palm, incorporating a bubinga lever cap knob that pivots 180°, and adding a multi-positional front knob that can be mounted on the top or on either side. You can also grip the plane in the recesses cast into the side. This combination of features ensures a solid, comfortable grip for all users in all applications.
All blades are lapped, 1/8" (0.125") thick and are available in either A2 or O1 tool steel.
