A well made skew rebate plane made to the usual Veritas high standard.
This rebating plane cuts quickly and quietly, avoiding the set-up, noise and dust associated with power tools. It is configured with a blade skewed at a 30° angle to reduce cut resistance, aid in shaving clearance and help pull the fence tight against the workpiece. Because the blade sits flush with the side of the plane body, corner cuts are clean and accurate. It is adjustable in two axes (vertical and horizontal) for depth and projection, the scoring spur sits ahead of the blade and is used to reduce tear out on cross grain work. The spur can be recessed for work with the grain.
The large wooden handles are solid and comfortable to hold. The 248mm(9.3/4") long ductile cast iron body is machined with a 45° blade bed and weighs 1.5kg. Supplied with a lapped A2 tool steel blade that is 3.2mm thick and just over 41mm(1.5/8") wide. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 microinches) or better.
The plane is available in left and right-hand versions.
