Veritas Small Scraping / Scraper Plane Review By: I.Ball
Plane Type: Small Scraping / Scraper
This Veritas Small Scraping Plane review is about the small scraping
plane made by Veritas Tools of Canada. This plane is also referred to
as the Veritas Small Scraper Plane.
The Veritas Small Scraping Plane is a scraper plane well suited for final smoothing of smaller areas including working difficult grain / highly figured timber.
The Veritas Small Scraper Plane is a 5 3/8" long plane constructed with a ductile cast-iron body which is fitted with a 50mm (2") wide high carbon steel blade (1mm thick) (45 degree grind).
The scraper blade sits just forward of centre of the plane with the blade covering the full width of the body, much like a rebate plane does.
It sits in a fixed frog which sets the scraper blade at a 20 degree angle; seen as the best angle.
Many users like rounding the edges of the scraper blade as this aids
in helping prevent grooves/ridges in the piece of timber being worked
which otherwise may be caused by the blade corners.
The Veritas Small Scraper Plane has a comfortable adjustable palm rest which can be rotated to either side.
The adjustment of the palm rest allows the user to use the plane comfortably and efficiently at different angles which can be useful in tight areas.
This plane weighs 1 1/2lb.
Supplied in a Veritas cardboard box.
