Palm Planes, Inset Plane

VERITAS Detail Palm Planes
With a height-adjustable palm rest for better in-hand registration, these miniature planes are easily maneuvered and permit fine, controlled cuts.

The investment-cast steel body has a 45° bed angle and a fixed mouth, and uses a brass retention screw to secure the included 30° bevel A2 tool steel blade (0.06" thick by 3/8" wide = 1.5 mm thick, 9.5 mm wide). The soles are approximately 1-1/2" (38 mm) long by 5/8" (16 mm) wide and are available in four profiles.

The concave and convex planes have curved soles with a side-to-side radius of 1/2" (12.7 mm). The double-convex (spoon) version has a 1/2" (12.7 mm) side-to-side radius and a 4" (101 mm) front-to-back radius.

Replacement blades are available separately (convex and double convex planes use the same blade). The bubinga palm rest is removable for work in tight spaces.

Veritas Inset Plane
While this small plane can be used as is, it was designed to be inset into a wooden plane body that you make. This lets you adapt the size, shape and function of the finished tool to suit your work type and preferred grip.

About the size of a finger plane, it can be used to create a small smooth plane or edge plane but is particularly useful for making a chamfer plane tailored to a specific width or angle.

Fitting neatly into a 1-11/16" x 3/4" (42.9 mm x 19 mm) mortise, the cast stainless-steel body has a linished sole, a 45° bed angle and a fixed mouth. A brass retention screw secures the included 30° bevel A2 tool steel blade 0.06" thick by 0.46" wide (1.5 by 11.7 mm). Notches along the sides of the body permit mechanical glue lock.

Instructions are included for creating a basic wooden body as well as chamfer guides. Used alone, the inset plane makes fine, controlled cuts. A simple way to craft a unique plane.
