The hand tools in this set have been selected to complement your power tools for the final trimming and fitting that are frequently necessary on-site. The kit comes in a custom black-and-yellow T-Loc® Systainer® 1 case with a French-fitted liner made of firm closed-cell EVA foam. A contrasting bottom layer lets you see at a glance if anything is missing. It also includes a small anti-corrosion emitter that releases a harmless vapor to help prevent rust from forming on the tools. A useful assortment of high-quality tools.
The kit includes the following items:
- Veritas PM-V11 butt chisels in 1/4", 1/2" and 1" widths (05S26.04+)
- Veritas detail flush-cutting saw (05K34.10)
- Flat and half-round Japanese milled-tooth files (62W30.70+)
- Veritas low-angle block plane with two PM-V11® blades (05P22.71)
With a 12° bed angle, the low-angle block plane excels at end-grain work. It has a combined blade advance and lateral adjust that is sensitive and accurate, and two blade-guide screws that prevent blade shifting. Its ductile cast iron body takes hard knocks without cracking, and has milled sides and a ground sole. Two lapped 25° PM-V11 steel blades are provided so you don't need to sharpen at the job site; you can just switch to the spare blade.
The included butt chisels are a 1" chisel for quickly removing waste material and two narrow chisels, 1/4" and 1/2" wide. The PM-V11 tool steel blades taper from shoulder to tip for strength and rigidity, and have parallel sides and true bevel edges. The hard torrefied maple handle is contoured to fit the hand nicely, and has a domed end that resists chipping from glancing mallet blows.
The detail flush-cutting saw has a thin, flexible blade with no set to its teeth, allowing you to trim projections flush to a surface without marking the work. Its 26 tpi blade has a Japanese tooth pattern that cuts aggressively on the pull stroke. With no tendency to drift in a cut, it can also be used for other fine-cutting applications.
The Japanese milled-tooth files cut with surprising speed yet leave a remarkably smooth surface. Their sharp-edged teeth shear material instead of abrading it. Suitable for wood or plastics, they are also useful for easing the edges of laminates. The included flat file and half-round file are both safe-edged.
The full price of the components if ordered individually is $584.00.
