Lee Valley Veritas Quick Release Face Vise

Lee Valley Veritas Quick Release Face Vise

04-30-2013 03:51 PM by rdwile | 8 comments »

I recently replaced my bench’s front vise with the Lee Valley (Veritas) Quick Release Face Vise which according to my extensive reading is one of the best for this purpose. For me it was a very smooth installation as I could simply bolt it to the underside of the benchtop without much modification. The vise face was lined up on the template so it was flush with the top of my bench and I drilled the holes. The wooden jaw is bubinga with ebony shoulders to add some visual interest, I thin...

Veritas Wooden Plane Kit

Veritas Wooden Plane Kit

12-19-2013 03:04 AM by Woodbridge | 8 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 ...

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

01-09-2014 11:23 PM by Jerry | 8 comments »

I got this wonderful little guide for Christmas and just now had my first opportunity to try it out. It took me a couple of minutes to wrap my head around how it works, but once I did, I was pretty impressed. You set the clamp in one set of grooves for the tails, and then slide it off and set it into a second set of grooves for the pins. I say set of grooves, but that’s somewhat misleading. There are three grooves in all, but the center groove serves double duty and is used in both orie...

Detail Chisels from Lee Valley Tools

Detail Chisels from Lee Valley Tools

03-01-2008 02:10 AM by tomfidgen | 7 comments »

I first purchased the set of five Detail Chisels from Lee Valley Tools a little over a year ago and can say I’ve used them on an almost daily basis ever since. My first impression when they arrived via Mail-order was the size. They’re small, extremely light and almost hobby like. Being used to chopping out mortises and cutting dovetails with heavier European style chisels, I decided to give the Detail Chisels a try and was pleasantly surprised by what I discovered. Using Chisels with only han...

Works like a charm

Works like a charm

I’m not a plane fanatic like some, and in fact this is my first. I was having trouble controlling the dado depths on plywood sheets because of bowage and remembered seeing someone, somewhere using one of these things.Anyway, I used it on my last project and it made a world of difference.The adjustment wanders a bit, and by a bit I mean something like .005”-.01” on the depth, which is probably due to how I’m measuring it, but once it’s dialed in it works really we...

Even Better With A Few Modifications

Even Better With A Few Modifications

10-21-2014 09:38 PM by OSU55 | 7 comments »

I’ve had one of these for about 2-1/2 years. Typical of Lee Valley / Veritas tools, everything’s great. You can read all about adjustments, available blades, and the rest in the manual from their website. The tool provides excellent results, but does have a learning curve, and there are a couple of things that make it an even better tool. Initially I ended up with an overly aggressive cut. It would dig in and stop, spin around, sometimes feeling like a slot car on a wiggly piece of track ...

Needs more refinement

Needs more refinement

I already have the Veritas wheel marking gauge w/ micro adjust, but I wanted another marking gauge because oftentimes, I wanted to save my settings, but with only 1 marking gauge, I couldn’t. I found this at Lee Valley for $20 and it was 2 marking gauges in 1, so I figured it was a good deal. One unexpectedly nice thing about this gauge is that it will not roll off your bench. I have had my large (and more expensive!) wheel marking roll off my bench before, and the cutter got damag...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

01-20-2016 05:54 AM by athomas5009 | 7 comments »

For Christmas I received the Veritas Cabinet Scraper w/EX blade. I really wanted a cab scraber because I hear they were amazing tools and I heard it was hard to beat the price of the Veritas Not to mentioned it was slightly bigger than the No 80 and had a thicker blade. Well let me tell you Veritas didn’t disappoint. out of the box the fit and finish was excellent, the sole was flat and the blade was ready to take a decent shaving. I used the stock blade for a cpl of hrs with no prob...

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

06-16-2015 07:32 PM by NZSixNine | 7 comments »

I selected three of these – the two-hundred dollars for a complete set in 64’s was out of my range. As other reviewers noted, they are SHARP. Thus, be careful removing the plastic covering they ship with – I cut myself pulling it off the half-inch bit. As well, if you purchase individual bits – as I did – have a case ready fr them or plan on building one to protect them. Don’t use them in wood where nails may be present – as I did – for once ...
