Veritas Detail Rabbet Plane Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Veritas Tools

Plane Type: Bullnose

Model No: Detail Rabbet


This Veritas Detail Rabbet Plane review covers the Veritas Detail Rabbet Plane manufactured by Veritas Tools of Canada.

The Veritas Detail Rabbet Plane is an attractive, little bullnose rabbet plane from the Veritas Tools range of traditional hand planes with Veritas's modern stylish twist.

The plane is made from accurately machined and ground ductile cast iron with a contrasting brass lever cap.

This plane's narrow sole and small 76mm (3") length makes it well suited to detail work such as cleaning grooves and dado's.

It is fitted with a O1 steel plane blade which spans the full width of the plane which is set on a 15 degree bed. The blade has a 30 degree bevel. The combination of the two gives a 45 degree cutting angle.

The Veritas Detail Rabbet Plane is available in five sizes:

     - 1/4"
     - 5/16"
     - 3/8"
     - 6mm
     - 10mm

This beautiful little plane has the hallmarks of being a collectable of the future.

Supplied in a Veritas cardboard box.
