A multi-purpose tool, the Veritas medium shoulder plane can be used on end grain (for example, trimming tenon shoulders) or for paring cross grain as is often required on tenon cheeks.
It can also used for rebate work, planing with the grain. This plane is proportioned for versatility; it measures 178mm(7") long by 17.5mm(11/16") wide and weighs 906g(2 lb.). If you have ever held a traditional shoulder plane, you will appreciate how this plane comes readily to hand.
The unique lever cap with a pivoting knob adjusts to fit your hand and preferred grip. The concave knob rests in the web of your hand, allowing a secure grip without the need of a vice-like pressure.
The plane is supplied with a lapped blade in O1 or the highly acclaimed PM-V11 alloy steel. These 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.
