Veritas Bullnose Plane Review By: I.Ball
Category: New Bullnose Planes
Manufacturer: Veritas Tools
Plane Type: Bullnose
This Veritas Bullnose Plane review covers the Veritas Bullnose Plane
manufactured by Veritas Tools of Canada.
The Veritas Bullnose Plane is Veritas Tools take on 20th Century metal bullnose planes such as the Record 077A Bullnose Plane and the Stanley 90 Bullnose Plane.
Veritas have put their stamp on the design which screams of a Veritas tool mixing the black of the securing arm with the grey of the ductile cast iron body and the bright brass of the securing nuts and adjuster nut.
The Veritas Bullnose Plane also known as a Veritas Bullnose Rabbet Plane
has a blade spanning the full width of the plane allowing the plane
to be used for rebate work.
The plane also has a removeable toe section which allows the plane to be used as a chisel plane; this function allows planing right into a corner.
The blade is 26mm wide (approx.) which is deliberately slightly wider than the width of the plane (25mm).The blade is 3mm (1/8") thick with a 25 degree bevel. The cutting face of the plane blade has a 0.0002" flatness tolerance.
There are three different Veritas Bullnose Plane blades available for this plane, with the only difference being the type of steel:
Check with the retailer for the blade they provide with the Veritas Bullnose
Plane or if they offer a choice of blade types.
The body has a 15 degree bed angle, this combined with the 25 degree blade bevel gives an effective cutting angle of 40 degrees.
The Veritas Bullnose Plane has adjustable features including blade adjustment through the use of the rear blade adjuster and has an adjustable mouth which is controlled by sliding the top section backwards of forwards to make a finer or wider mouth.
The plane is also fitted with four side set screws which are used to help position and reposition the blade.
Veritas Tools: "If the blade is in firm contact with all four set screws, depth of cut adjustment will be difficult or impossible."
The Veritas Bullnose Plane is supplied in a Veritas cardboard box.
