VERITAS Shooting Board

This is a shooting board that doesn’t limit you to one angle – the fence is adjustable to let you shoot up to 60° from square. A spring-loaded button registers in fixed detents at 0°, 18°, 22.5°, 25.7°, 30°, 36°, 45° and 60° to let you quickly set the fence for square angles as well as miter cuts to produce frames with ten, eight, seven, six, five, four or three sides. For angles in between, the fence locks in place with a gyratory handle. A slot in the fence face accepts an adjustable user-made wooden sacrificial extension, which helps prevent grain blow-out by supporting stock from behind.

The 610 mm long shooting track fits the Veritas shooting planes (nos. 325030, 325031, 325032, 325033) and shooting sander (no. 325150, Veritas code 05Z1501). The channel is 9.5 mm deep and can be adjusted to fit running surfaces 51 mm to 63 mm wide. Set screws keep the stainless-steel outer rail from shifting in use. Low-friction UHMW strips in the bottom of the track let the plane glide smoothly. The fence and track are mounted on an 292 x 610 mm base made of 19 mm thick Baltic birch plywood. A cleat on the bottom of the board registers on the edge of the bench to hold it in place.

The fence is cast from a strong zinc-aluminium alloy, with steel and brass fittings. The track is durable aluminium.

Plane NOT included!

VERITAS Shooting Board Fence

This fence kit lets you construct a shooting board that doesn’t limit you to one angle – the fence is adjustable to let you easily shoot miters of various angles. A spring-loaded button registers in fixed detents at 0°, 18°, 22.5°, 25.7°, 30°, 36°, 45° and 60° to let you quickly adjust the fence to shoot square angles as well as miters for frames with ten, eight, seven, six, five, four or three sides. For angles in between, the fence locks in place with a gyratory handle.

The fence is cast from a strong zinc-aluminum alloy, with steel and brass fittings. It is easily installed on a user-made shooting board in a right- or left-hand configuration, using the included mounting hardware. A slot in the fence face accepts an adjustable user-made wooden sacrificial extension, which helps prevent grain blow-out by supporting stock from behind.

Plane and wooden base NOT included!
