The plane is equipped with an A2 tool steel blade which is hardened to Rockwell 60-62.

As standard the blade is used with the bevel facing upwards.

The blade is held in place with the black lever cap which secures the blade in place by feeding the lever cap tip through the plane opening at the rear of the plane towards the plane mouth and then turning the securing nut underneath the lever cap until the lever cap and blade are secure. Perform the reverse operation to remove the lever cap.

Note: as with all parts, make sure not to over-tighten the nut to avoid damage to the plane.

The Veritas miniature shoulder plane has a blade fine adjustment mechanism to allow accurate setting of the blade depth.

The blade adjustment is controlled by turning the stainless steel nut at the very rear of the plane.

Note: ensure to loosen the lever cap before making adjustments to avoid damage to the plane.

This tiny Veritas shoulder plane is presented in a smart fitted black case.
