Detailed Description

Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane

The Veritas Low Angle jack plane is ideal for shooting miters, working end grain, and initial smoothing. Comparable to a 62-1/2 because of its generous size and weight, low center of gravity, and radically set-back mouth, this is a bevel-up plane, with a 12° bed angle similar to a Low Angle block plane.

The plane is 15" long, 2 3/4" wide and weighs in at 5 lb 5 oz. You will appreciate the way this plane (with a toe that is one third the length of the sole) registers to the workpiece. The body is fully stress-relieved, ductile cast iron. With sides machined square to the sole, a specially shaped lever cap, and the machined thumb recess on either side of the body, it provides both comfort and excellent control when shooting.

The plane's adjustable mouth can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings with minimum tear-out or opened for heavier cuts. All of this can be done quickly and accurately with the front locking knob and the unique mouth adjustment screw. The large hardwood front knob and rear handle provide a comfortable grip. The adjustment mechanism, with its combined feed and lateral adjustment knob, makes blade setting easy and accurate. The set screws on either side of the blade prevent it from shifting in use, but allow full lateral adjustment.

Equipped with a lapped 25° blade, 2 1/4" wide by 3/16" (0.187") thick, in PM-V11 tool steel.

Honing instructions for various cutting angles included.

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.
