This specialized rabbet plane is the largest in the Veritas line of shoulder planes. Its size and mass make it perfect for trimming breadboard tenons, adjusting shoulders, or even paring down tenon cheeks. At 210mm long and 31.8mm wide, and weighing 1.7kg, it brings both authority and precision to larger work.
Typical shoulder planes are awkward to handle and control; they have overcome this by shaping a new lever cap that fits properly in the palm, incorporating a bubinga lever cap knob that pivots 180°, and adding a multi-positional front knob that can be mounted on the top or on either side. You can also grip the plane in the recesses cast into the side. This combination of features ensures a solid, comfortable grip for all users in all applications. Blades are lapped, 3.2mm thick, and come in either A2 or PMV-11 tool steel.
For those who want the performance of a superior shoulder plane, this tool is the solution.
