Veritas Bevel-Up Jack Rabbet Plane
This plane takes large-scale rabbeting work in stride. Weighing 6 lb (2.7 kg), with a full-width mouth and 15-1/8" (385 mm) long body similar to that of a jack plane, it is suitable for very large rabbets and fielded or bevelled panels – anywhere you need to make a long, wide cut that would require major effort with a smaller rabbet or shoulder plane. The long sole and substantial mass help ensure accuracy; it will not follow the bumps and valleys that a shorter plane would, and the 4-3/4" (120 mm) toe registers solidly to the workpiece.

Set flush to both sides of the 2-1/4" (57 mm) wide body, the 3/16" (4.8 mm) thick bevel-up blade makes right- or left-handed corner cuts cleanly and accurately. The 15° bed angle, coupled with the 25° blade bevel, yields an effective cutting angle of 40°. Scoring spurs on either side of the body scribe the cut ahead of the blade, minimizing tear-out on cross-grain work.

Adjustable for depth and projection, the spurs can be recessed for working with the grain or to ensure that the outside spur cannot accidentally score the workpiece. Mounted on two steel fence rods with brass collet screws, the 7-3/8" (187 mm) long removable fence can be set up to 5-1/4" (133 mm) from the shoulder and is through-drilled to accept a wooden fence extension. The rear tote tilts and locks to either side for knuckle clearance.

The stress-relieved ductile cast iron body is accurately machined, with a sole that is flat and square to the sides. The adjustable mouth can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings and minimum tear-out, or opened for heavier cuts. A Norris-style mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments for easy, precise blade setting. Set screws on either side of the blade prevent it from shifting in use, but allow full lateral adjustment. Includes a lapped blade.

VERITAS Skew Rabbet Planes
Also known as a moving fillister, this rabbeting plane cuts quickly and quietly, avoiding the set-up, noise and dust associated with power tools.

Like the Stanley no. 289 that inspired it, it is configured with a blade skewed at a 30° angle to reduce cut resistance, aid in shaving clearance, and help pull the fence tight against the workpiece. Because the blade sits flush with the side of the plane body, corner cuts are clean and accurate.

Adjustable in two axes (vertical and horizontal) for depth and projection, the scoring spur sits ahead of the blade and is used to reduce tear-out on cross-grain work. The spur can be recessed for work with the grain.

The 7-3/8 inch (187 mm) long fence is through-drilled to accept a wooden extension. Double guide rods and a special collet locking system prevent the fence from racking, and the large brass knobs allow fast and easy adjustments without tools. The fence can be positioned to allow a maximum rabbet width of 1-1/2 inch (38 mm)

The adjustable shoe controls the depth of cut to a maximum 3/4 inch (19 mm) deep (or you can remove the shoe for no depth limitation), and has relieved edges to avoid marking your work.

Supplied with a lapped blade that is 1/8 inch (3.2 mm) thick and just over 1-5/8 inch (41 mm) wide. The depth-adjustment mechanism is fast and accurate, with an independent traveller to prevent lateral shifting of the blade. Set screws along the side allow repeatable blade positioning.

The large wooden handles are solid and comfortable to hold. The 9-3/4 inch (248 mm) long ductile cast iron body is machined with a 45° blade bed and weighs 3-1/2 lb. (1600 g)

The plane is available in left- and right-hand versions. You may need only the version that suits your dominant hand, though neither model is exclusively for left- or right-handed users. They are in fact complementary since having both lets you accommodate any grain direction.

Pair Fence Rods 6 inch
for VERITAS Skew Rabbet Planes. Longer fence rods are desirable when you need to add a thicker auxiliary fence for stable registration against a workpiece, such as with a tapered spacer for angled cuts, but still require use of the full cutting width of the blade. At 6 inch (150 mm) long overall, the stainless-steel rods are 2-1/2 inch (63 mm) longer than the rods supplied with the plane. Flats on the ends of the rods permit wrench tightening.

Variable Angle Fence for Veritas Rabbet Planes
This variable angle fence is now available in a version that mounts on the fence rods of the Veritas skew rabbet and jack rabbet planes, locking in position with brass collets.

It allows accurate and consistent planing of any angle from 45° to 135°, set using a square or angle gauge, or directly on an angle you wish to match.

The spring-loaded lever, which locks the fence, can be rotated out of the way if necessary.

Through-holes in the 11 inch (279 mm) long aluminum fence allow the attachment of a wooden extension, or a tapered spacer for planing angles less than 45°.
