Only 5 5/16" long with a 3/4" wide blade, this is a fully functional 1:3-scale version of our right-hand shooting plane. A superb tool for precisely trimming smaller stock to length, it is useful for anything from picture framing to kumiko and similarly fine work.
The body is made of stainless steel, machined and ground with a sole and running surface that are accurately flat and square to one another. The running surface measures 0.71" wide, for an exacting fit within the track of the Veritas Miniature Shooting Board (offered separately on its own or paired with the miniature shooting plane).
To make shearing cuts that leave a clean finish on end grain, the blade bed is skewed 20° to reduce cutting resistance. Combined with the 12° bed angle and 25° blade bevel, this yields an effective cutting angle of 36°. Weighing just over 5 oz, the plane has a walnut tote and a Norris-style mechanism that combines feed and lateral adjustments so you can set the 0.060" thick A2 blade with precision.
Supplied in an embossed, French-fitted presentation box. Made in Canada.
