Veritas Miniature Low Angle Block Plane Review By: I.Ball

Tool Type: Miniature Low Angle Block Plane
Model No: N/A
This Veritas Miniature Block Plane review looks at the Veritas Miniature
Low Angle Block Plane made by Veritas Tools of Canada.
The Veritas Miniature Block Plane is a small 2 1/2" long, 3/4" wide block plane weighing in at 1.7oz.
The scaled down version gives a charm about it, almost like an ornament, yet and obviously crucially it offers great functionality for detailed work.
The Veritas Miniature Block Plane is constructed from investment-cast stainless steel with a ground sole and decorative circular dimples on the plane sides which also offer additional grip.
The plane is equipped with a stainless steel Norris style adjuster for fine blade
The Veritas Miniature Block Plane is fitted with a 1/2" (13mm) wide, 1.5mm thick, A2 steel blade.
This blade has a 25 degree bevel which is set on a low-angle 12 degree bed which gives a 37 degree cutting angle.
While the minature looks in the whole like the fullsize Veritas Block Plane, the miniature does have a few understandable differences including having a fixed mouth and have a different cap locking method.
Such features would cost quite a bit more to make and probably would be overkill in terms of functionality.
Supplied in a hard, black, embossed, fitted, leatherette case which is packaged
in a Veritas cardboard box.
Made by Veritas Tools of Canada.
