The Veritas miniature router is a two-handled hand router plane used for cutting, cleaning and smoothing grooves / depressed surfaces parallel with the surface of the work. This router is primarily suited towards model makers, violin makers, instrument makers and any work which requires intricate grooving work.
The Veritas miniature router comes equipped with a 3mm (1/8") A2 tool steel cutter.
As with the larger Veritas router, the router cutter can be set facing to the front for regular work, they can be set towards the rear for bull-nose work.

The cutter has a notch at the top of its stem which locates with the base of the stainless steel depth adjustment knob. When passing the cutter through the aluminium collar, ensure the collar is released.
The collar has a very useful spring loaded action to ensure the blade is held in place when the collar is released.
Once the cutter is in place, ensure the collar is secured by tightening the collar locking screw.
The Veritas router plane is fitted with two small splayed hardwood wooden knobs (formerly Bubinga).
The router body is made from investment cast stainless steel and is finished with a black finish. The sole of the router has been machined and ground flat.
The Veritas miniature router is presented in a fitted presentation box which helps keep the router safe and secure.
The patented Veritas router plane is made in Canada.
