Its size and mass make it perfect for trimming breadboard tenons, adjusting shoulders or even paring down tenon cheeks. At 210mm long and 32mm wide, and weighing 1,700g, it brings both authority and precision to larger work. Typical shoulder planes are awkward to handle and control; Veritas have overcome this by shaping a new lever cap that fits properly in the palm, incorporating a hardwood lever cap knob that pivots 180° and adding a multi-positional front knob that can be mounted on the top or on either side. You can also grip the plane in the recesses cast into the side. This combination of features ensures a solid, comfortable grip for all users in all applications. For those who want the performance of a superior shoulder plane, this tool is the solution. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm or better. Supplied with an O1 or PM-V11 alloy steel lapped blade 3.2mm thick.
