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

Category: Miniature Tools

Manufacturer: Veritas

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 adjustments.

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.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
