The Veritas router plane is the Stanley #71 reborn with radical improvements. An invaluable tool for work on stopped or through dadoes and grooves, or for any work that requires an area cut to a precise depth. The blade depth is regulated by a fine screw feed that travels 1/32 inch per turn for precise adjustment, with the resulting depth of cut controlled by a positive locking depth stop.

Unique to the Veritas router plane is a spring-loaded blade-clamping collar that holds the blade in position when the collar is loosened. It provides tactile feedback, allowing controlled blade adjustment to a depth of 1 inch The collar can also be set to fully release for quick and easy blade removal, for repositioning in front of the post for general work, behind the post for bullnose applications, or laterally (left or right) for work on hinge gains.

Made to the same high standards as the other Veritas planes, the ductile cast iron body has been accurately machined and ground flat. The large wooden knobs are positioned to provide both comfort and excellent control.
