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

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

185 days ago 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...

A goof proof sharpening system

A goof proof sharpening system

154 days ago by CharlesA | 9 comments »

I will admit at the beginning that I have never used the scary sharp, the Paul Sellers method, Tormek, or other sharpening systems. A year ago I got my first good set of chisels and started with some vintage Stanley planes. I stopped by my local Woodcraft and asked what they recommended for sharpening, and I picked up this Veritas Mk II and some Japanese water stones. Good: You don’t have to know a lot. There are lots of possible settings for every kind of chisel and plane. It...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

284 days ago 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...

I purchased the Veritas Mark II honing guide from my local Woodcraft store (not sure if they all do it this way, but it was kept behind a door at mine, wasn’t with the other honing guides (for good reason). I took it home, and got it out of it’s packaging, and inspected. The thing that I noticed first was the heft. It is well cast, and the brass knobs are beautifully machined. First impression: high quality tool. The instruction manual is a lengthy read, but super well writ...

Excellent plane...

Excellent plane...

Pro’s Awesome little plane, once adjusted it will do a very good job of planing flush in tight spaces or very detailed work. Con’s Somewhat tricky to get the blade into the plane after sharpening without nicking the corners.Blade took a bit of work to get the machining marks out of it, and the base of the plane was slightly cupped, which required some lapping to get it flat. If these sound minor, they are…once set up you’ll find yourself using this thing ju...

Tuning up

Tuning up

1162 days ago by boatlark | 1 comment »

Some months ago I was given a Veritas scraping plane as a present. As is almost always the case with Veritas this tool worked right from the box. As I’d no real project to test it on I spend some time trying to work out how to get it tuned and working really well. Despite the comprehensive intstructions I struggled to get it to cut cleanly until I did away with the ‘hook’ on the blade. With the back of the blade lapped and polished and a good finish to the 45 degree bevel...

Veritas jointer fence

Veritas jointer fence

I recently picked up the veritas jointer fence from lee valley to use with my low angle jack plane to joint some 6/4 walnut for my wifes desk.I am fairly new to hand tools and with that I am not the steadiest when prepping boards edges yet.This fence changed that. I was able to joint the entire 7 foot length of my boards smoothly and nice and square.The instructions for this tool are very clear and explain what to do if your planes wings aren’t square to the sole.Thankfully mine is so t...

Had this now for several months. I have all three plane blades which come in different angles. No matter the wood I am usually able to achieve a good finish.

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

500 days ago by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is the file holder from Veritas for card scrapers. Works great for putting a new edge on card scrapers after the burr is worn out. Takes only a couple of seconds to file the edge and get it ready to burnish or you can leave it as is after filing for heavy (as heavy as you can get with a card scraper anyway) material removal. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a good jig for their card scrapers.

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Up for review is a scaled-down version of the Veritas edge jointing block plane. I recently purchased this miniature as a novelty item but found it to be a very effective tool for small projects. Like the miniature Veritas shoulder plane, this tool is made from investment cast steel. Precisely machined on its sole and integral fence, the plane also features a nicely flattened iron which sharpens easily. On the whole, fit and finish is top notch as it is on all Veritas products. After...
