Fully functional, it has a 15.9 mm (5/8 inch) wide A2 blade (1.5 mm thick) with a 25° bevel angle that, together with the 13° bed angle, provides an effective cutting angle of 38°. The stainless-steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the blade with precision.

VERITAS Miniature Block Plane
This version of the low-angle block plane is about a third the size of the original Veritas block plane.

At just under 64 mm (2-1/2 inch) long and 19 mm (3/4 inch) wide, it is a useful size for small-scale work or where a larger plane would be difficult to use. The low 12° bed angle combined with the 25° blade bevel gives it a cutting angle of 37°, making it also suitable for end-grain use.

The stainless-steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the 12.7 mm (1/2 inch) wide A2 blade (1.5 mm thick) with precision. The body is made from investment-cast stainless steel, and has a fixed mouth, machined sides and a ground sole. Weighs 50 g (1.7 oz).

Made in Canada. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box, it makes a stunning gift.

Veritas Miniature Router Plane
As with the other Veritas miniature planes, this tiny 3 inch (76 mm) wide router plane not only looks like its full-size counterpart, it works like it, too. Surprisingly comfortable to hold and maneuver, it is ideal for hardware installation and for fine inlay or intarsia work.

It comes with a 1/8 inch (3.2 mm) wide A2 tool-steel blade (hardened to Rc60-62) that can be positioned inboard for standard use or outboard for true bullnose work. The stainless-steel body has been machined and the sole ground and lapped flat. The sole has also been designed to encircle the blade for maximum registration to a workpiece, and to bridge recesses for stability on narrow stock. The knobs are bubinga. A fine-screw feed mechanism sets blade depth; blades are secured with a knurled clamping knob. Weighs just 2 oz (60 g).

Supplied in an embossed, French-fitted presentation box, it is an outstanding gift for any woodworker.

Veritas Miniature Shoulder Plane
This miniature version of the Veritas medium shoulder plane was developed out of a desire to test the limitations of materials, design, and manufacturing processes (not to mention the patience of the Veritas engineers!). Weighing a mere 1.7 oz (50 g) and measuring 2-1/2" (63.5 mm) long by 1/4" (6.35 mm) wide, this is the smallest plane Veritas have made to date.

Despite its diminutive size, it is fully functional and remarkably effective for fine trimming or cleaning the bottoms of narrow dados. It is surprisingly comfortable to hold, making it exceptionally easy to maneuver and control. The investment-cast stainless-steel body has a fixed mouth, with a machined sole and ground sides. A low 15° bed angle combined with the 25° blade bevel provides a 40° cutting angle.

The stainless-steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the full-width A2 blade (0.060" / 1.5 mm thick) with precision. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box, it makes a stunning gift, at a price that even we can't believe! Highly recommended.

VERITAS Miniature Spokeshave
This spokeshave is a new addition to the Veritas line of fully functional miniature tools. At less than an ounce and only 89 mm (3-1/2 inch) long overall, it is a third the size of our regular flat-bottomed spokeshave, and is useful for making fine shaping cuts where a full-sized tool would be too bulky or awkward to use.

Made of investment-cast stainless steel, the low-profile body (9/16 inch tall = 14 mm) has a 45° blade bed, a tight fixed mouth opening and bubinga handles. The sole and blade bed are machined. The 19 mm (3/4 inch) wide, 1.6 mm (1/16 inch) thick A2 blade is hardened to Rc60-62. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box, it makes a great gift. Video (1.1 MB)

VERITAS Miniature Edge Plane
This 1/3-scale version of the iron edge plane is a fully functional miniature. Useful for fine trimming work on thin stock up to 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) thick, such as with small-scale boxes or maquettes, it fits the hand well, making it easy to control under fingertip pressure.

The 2-3/8 inch (60 mm) long body and lever cap are machined, investment-cast stainless steel. The 0.060 inch (1.5 mm) thick by 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) wide A2 steel blade has a 25° bevel angle, and, like the original, is bedded at 12° and skewed at 30°. The blade position and depth of cut are easily set by hand. Weighs a mere 1.6 oz. (50 g)

Presented in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box, this diminutive edge plane makes a great gift for any woodworker or tool aficionado. Compare with regular sized plane
Note: this is a right handed plane!

VERITAS Miniature Cabinet Scraper
This cabinet scraper is the latest addition to the Veritas line of fully functional miniature tools. At about 1/3 the scale of the full-size tool, it measures 3-13/16 inch (81 mm) wide overall and weighs about 425 g. Its small size allows fine control when smoothing surfaces.
The 15/16 inch (24 mm) wide blade, made of spring steel and ground at a 45° angle, is held at a consistent depth and angle. A thumbscrew lets you camber the blade to prevent blade corners from leaving ridges in the work. The handle position lets you apply force directly in line with the cutting edge.
Made of investment-cast steel with a stainless-steel camber screw. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box, it's a great gift for any woodworker.
Made in Canada.
