Accessory Blades for the Veritas Small Plow

Accessory Blades for the Veritas Small Plow

05-23-2012 03:57 PM by Derek Cohen | 6 comments »

This is a short pictorial on setting up the Small Plow to cut T&Gs. This is a new-to-me plane, and I took a few pics as I was working out the kinks and having a little play. I hope this helps some of you. Link: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ToolReviews/AccessoryBladesfortheVeritasSmallPlow.html Regards from Perth Derek

Truly a masterpiece of a hand plane

Truly a masterpiece of a hand plane

07-14-2011 05:37 AM by jayman7 | 6 comments »

As you probably expect, I’m going to echo everyone else’s comments on this plane. I have to admit this is my first Veritas hand plane. Like most of you, I was hesitant to pay the hefty price tag but I finally bought it after oogling it for the past several years. During that time, I tuned up my fair share of two jack planes, two smoothers, and two block planes from ebay. They were a pain in the butt to tune up but I learned the inner workings of how a hand plane performs. Mos...

Veritas Jointer Plane

Veritas Jointer Plane

(you can click the picture to go to Lee-Valley’s web site and read more if you so desire.) With Veritas I expect a good quality, mid-range tool and that’s exactly what I got. Like a kid at Christmas, I had to take a few swipes with it last night right out of the box. It did ok out of the box. Tonight I honed the blade and started getting her setup. The blade, the O1 version, was not as flat as I would have expected so I had to spend a good amount of time getting the back f...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

10-03-2013 12:23 AM by PatrickB | 6 comments »

I just go this tool today. I love it. It’s a great hand tool. Pulled it out of the box and cleaned the blade and put a slight hook on the scraper and away I went. Very easy to control the amount of camber in the blade. Just a little bit and takes light wispy shavings that curl. Give it more camber and it takes a more aggressive cut. I keep an old cutting board around just for trying tools out on and see how they do. This is an end grain cutting board so it’s pretty tough. This cab...

Veritas Wooden Plane Kit

Veritas Wooden Plane Kit

12-19-2013 03:04 AM by Woodbridge | 6 comments »

Over the last 12 months, I’ve made a few Krenov style wooden hand planes and also collected and refurbished a number of old Stanley and Record planes. I now have a nice collection of number 3, 4,5,6, and 7 planes, all of them capable of cutting wispy shavings. I am giving a presentation in the new year to the woodworking club I belong to on making wooden hand planes. I noticed a few weeks ago that Lee Valley/Veritas has introduced a Wooden Plane Hardware kit with s Norris style ...

Just figured if post a couple pics of my Vietnamese style hand plane I got from veritas for 62$. It’s 245mm and comes hand tuned with a camber allready on the blade! Made from rosewood I believe and I’m very impressed so far.. Will update once it gets some abuse. Iron sides

Not impressed with this vise

Not impressed with this vise

02-12-2008 05:19 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 5 comments »

I have bought several products from Lee Valley/Veritras, and I have been very happy with them. So, I expected a lot from them, when I bought this vise. For what I paid for this bench vise, I’m not that impressed. I took the picture for this review showing how the handles can get out of alignment. The problem is that the set-screws that lock the large screw and handle together are undersized. The use of set-screws I feel is the real flaw. The friction from a couple set-screws isn&#...

My New 'Favorite Plane'

My New 'Favorite Plane'

03-19-2010 05:21 PM by TheDane | 5 comments »

I have a new favorite plane. OK … every one of my planes has been my favorite at one time or another, but my new Veritas Apron Plane is now at the top of my list. A couple of technical details. The Veritas Apron Plane is a small, low-angle block plane that weighs in at about 14 ounces (much lighter than my Stanley 60 1/2). It is 5-1/2” long and 1-3/4” wide, and is made of ductile cast iron. I ordered mine with an A2 blade. The bed is set at 12-degrees, and the Norris-styl...

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

06-12-2010 09:51 AM by live4ever | 5 comments »

I’ve never been able to restore a cheap or older block plane to complete satisfaction. Not knowing whether it was me or whether I was working with inferior quality, I became frustrated and resigned myself to never experiencing the titillating joy of transparent shavings and effortless planing. I began considering simply purchasing a high-quality block plane, either a Lie-Nielsen or Veritas, because I had wasted enough time trying to restore junk and a properly tuned block plane is t...

Veritas Skew Block Plane

Veritas Skew Block Plane

01-07-2012 09:05 PM by Andrew | 5 comments »

The Christmas present that keeps on shaving. My wife suprised me while making me decide what plane to get. A devious plan at the least, but she pulled it off. I helped a friend decide on this plane as the most versatile over the Lie Nielsen skew block plane. The major factor was the adjustable mouth. I opted for the 01 blade, usually suggested by hand tool gurus for low angle instruments. And now for the review… The fit and finish are far above any tool I have previously owned, th...
