About Veritas® Planes - Woodworking
Over the past half-century, plane makers have focused more on cutting production costs than on making planes work better. For our planes, we chose to focus on better adjustment and feed mechanisms, features to prevent blade vibration, and blades offering a choice of bevels and metallurgical properties to suit your preferences.

With the exception of our NX60 premium block plane, all Veritas® plane bodies are fully stress-relieved ductile cast iron, which is dimensionally stable and takes hard knocks without cracking. To allow fast, accurate adjustment, parts are machined to exacting standards in our factory, ensuring a precise fit. Surface ground to a high degree of finish, the soles are flat and square to the sides. Most of our bench planes have extra-large side wings for stable shooting. The large bubinga front knob and rear tote provide excellent control and comfort. A combined feed and lateral adjustment mechanism makes blade setting easy and accurate, and set screws in the sides prevent the blade from shifting when it hits a knot.

Bench, bevel-up and block planes (standard and low-angle) come with lapped blades made of A2, O1 or our new PM-V11® tool steel. Choice of blade type depends on your preferences – how you like to work, how much planing you do and your sharpening methods.

For more detailed information about individual planes, please see the product display pages from the main planes list.
