Detailed Description

Veritas Bevel-up Small Smoothing Plane

With a size comparable to a #3 bench plane, this Low Angle smoother is 9" long, 2 5/16" wide and weighs only 2 lb 12 oz. Smaller and lighter than a full-size smoother, it is easier to maneuver and is less fatiguing to use for extended periods. Further, since the blade is narrower, at 1 3/4" wide, cuts are easier to push through.

Like the full-size versions, it is useful for final finishing of surfaces, end-grain work and for shooting miters. The machined and surface ground ductile cast iron body has a 12° bed angle and a movable toe fully enclosed by the body casting.

The locking front knob controls the toe to set the mouth opening, while an unobtrusive stop-screw in the throat allows repeatable mouth setting and prevents contact between the blade and toe. The Norris-type adjuster mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments, making blade setting accurate and easy. Set screws on either side of the blade prevent shifting in use. The front knob and rear handle are hardwood.

With an effective cutting angle of 37° to minimize fiber tearing, the included 25° bevel blade is 1/8" thick, lapped, in PM-V11 tool steel.

Made in Canada.

PM-V11 Steel

All of the Veritas bench, block and shoulder planes that we stock have PM-V11 steel blades. Veritas conducted extensive testing and determined that PM-V11 offers the best balance of hardness, edge retention and ease of sharpening in tool steels. It hones to a very fine edge and can easily be sharpened with commonly available sharpening abrasives.

From Veritas

PM-V11 is a powdered metal (PM) alloy. To form a PM alloy, constituent metals are melted and mixed together, then atomized, creating very small particles that cool and harden, forming a powder. This powder is screened to ensure consistent particle size, and then heated under pressure to form a billet. The billet is then rolled to the required thickness, ready to process as a conventionally smelted steel would be. The PM process yields a steel with a very fine grain structure that is uniform throughout.
