Shooting Plane

  • Shooting Plane 05-P-5471

    The mass of this plane, combined with its long base and low center of gravity, makes it both stable and effective. At 3.5kg and just under 405mm long, it is a substantial plane; you will appreciate the authority it provides when shooting. 

    The body is fully stress-relieved, ductile cast iron, with a sole and running surface machined flat and square to one another; the 54mm wide running surface fits the classic Stanley #52 chute board. Three set screws let you compensate for slight inaccuracies in a wooden shooting board by adjusting the blade square to the workpiece. 

    Loosening a brass locking knob allows you to adjust the mouth opening, while a stop-screw retains mouth settings and prevents contact between the blade and movable toe. You can set the adjustable rear tote at a comfortable angle for use with the sole upright or facing down.

    A bevel-up plane, it has a bed skewed 20° to reduce cut resistance and make a shearing cut that leaves a clean finish on end grain. Combined with the 12° bed angle and 25° blade bevel, this yields an effective cutting angle of 35°. 

    Includes a lapped blade, made of PM-V11® tool steel, which Veritas find offer the best performance at low bevel angles. It uses the same 57mm-wide blades as their other bevel-up planes. A Norris-style mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments for easy, precise blade setting.

    Available in right-handed with the left-handed version available on request at the same price.
