Detailed Description

Veritas Standard Angle Block Plane

For general-purpose work, the standard block plane is 1/8" taller than the Low Angle version and has a 20° bed angle and a low-profile lever cap that fits the hand well.

The tall side wings are ideal for shooting, and finger grips in the sides improve control. The combined blade advance and lateral adjust is the most sensitive, accurate adjustment mechanism available. Two guide screws prevent blade shifting. The ductile cast iron body can take hard knocks, and the adjustable nosepiece does not extend past the body, so it cannot be driven into the blade if you drop the plane. The plane is machined to exacting standards, the milled sides and sole surface ground to a fine finish.

Equipped with a chatter-free 25° blade in exceptional PM-V11 tool steel. For working difficult wood, lapped 38° and 50° bevel blades are available separately.

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.
