This specialized rabbet plane is the largest in the Veritas line of shoulder planes. Its size and mass make it perfect for trimming breadboard tenons, adjusting shoulders, or even paring down tenon cheeks. At 8 1/4" long and 1 1/4" wide, and weighing 3 3/4 lb, it brings both authority and precision to larger work.
Typical shoulder planes are awkward to handle and control; we 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. Blades are lapped, 1/8" (0.125") thick, and come in A2, O1 or PM-V11 tool steel.
For those who want the performance of a superior shoulder plane, this tool is the solution.
Made in Canada. Patented.
In response to several customer requests, we offer brass knobs (available separately) to replace the hardwood knobs provided with the plane.
