Veritas Small Scraping / Scraper Plane Review By: I.Ball

Category: Scrapers

Manufacturer: Veritas

Plane Type: Small Scraping / Scraper

Model No:


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.

"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."
