This version of the Veritas Small Plough Plane excels at cutting grooves, rebates and tongues. It also has the ability to cut decorative beading. The Veritas Small Plough Plane features a 168mm (6-5/8") long fence that registers solidly to the workpiece. Double guide rods and a special collet locking system prevent the fence from racking. The fence is through-drilled, allowing you to add a wooden fence extension. The large wooden rear tote offers a solid, comfortable grip. The 225mm (9") long ductile cast iron body weighs 795g (1-3/4lb) and has a machined 45° blade bed. Large brass knobs make adjustments fast and easy without need for tools. The fence offset with a 6.35mm (1/4") blade is from flush up to a maximum of 38mm (1-1/2"). The adjustable depth stop has relieved edges to avoid marking your work. Secured directly by a brass knob, it controls the depth of the groove or rebate (maximum 12.7mm (1/2") deep.
