VERITAS Medium Router Plane
Slightly larger than the small Veritas router plane (item nr. 307867), this tool has the advantage of using the same blades as the full-size Veritas router plane (item nr. 307860), letting you use the complete range of blade sizes Veritas offers (except the inlay cutter head, whcih does not fit).
For general use, the blade may be positioned inboard with the sole encircling it for maximum registration on the workpiece, even when approaching from the side or working an edge. This allows it to bridge recesses, providing great stability even on narrow stock. The blade can also be used in an outboard configuration, with the blade extending past the body, for bullnose applications. The blade-clamping knob uses a wave washer to hold the blade as it is loosened, for easy, controlled depth adjustment.
An included stainless-steel depth-stop collar locks onto the blade shaft to limit cutting depth to a preset maximum. The plane can make cuts up to 1 inch (25 mm) deep with the depth stop installed or up to 1-3/4 inch (44 mm) deep without it. The ductile cast iron body has been accurately machined and ground flat. The plane is 3-1/2 inch (89 mm) wide by 3 inch (76 mm) deep and weighs about 370 g. A versatile plane, particularly on narrow material or in confined areas.
Sold with a 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) wide blade.
