Veritas Medium Shoulder Plane
A multi-purpose tool, the Veritas medium shoulder plane can be used on end grain (e.g., trimming tenon shoulders) or for paring cross grain as is often required on tenon cheeks. It is also used for rebate work, planing along the grain. This plane is proportioned for versatility; it measures 7" long by 11/16" wide and weighs 2 lbs. If you have ever held a traditional shoulder plane, you will appreciate how this plane comes to hand. The unique lever cap with a pivoting knob adjusts to fit your hand and preferred grip. The concave knob rests in the web of your hand, allowing a secure grip without the need of a vise-like pressure. The plane is available with a lapped blade in either an A2 or O1 tool steel.
