The three Veritas miniature planes include:
Veritas Miniature Shoulder Plane
The initial idea behind this miniature version of the Veritas medium shoulder plane was to challenge the limitations of the materials, design, and manufacturing processes (not to mention the patience of the engineers!). It weighs a mere 48g and measures 62mm long by 6.3mm wide, it is the smallest plane Veritas have made to date. It is fully functional, comfortable to hold and easy to manoeuvre and control. A remarkably effective plane when it comes to fine trimming or cleaning the bottoms of narrow dados. Investment cast from stainless steel, the body has a fixed mouth and accurately machined and surface ground sole and sides. A stainless steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the full-width A2 blade (1.5mm thick) with precision. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box. Made in Canada.
Veritas Miniature Router Plane
This 75mm wide router plane not only looks like its full-size counterpart, it works like it, too. Comfortable to hold and manoeuvre, it is ideal for hardware installation, fine inlay or intarsia work. It comes with a 3.2mm wide A2 tool-steel blade (hardened to HRC 60-62), positioned inboard for standard use or outboard for true bullnose work. The carefully machined stainless-steel body has a ground and lapped sole. The sole encircles the blade for maximum registration to a work piece and to bridge recesses for stability on narrow stock. The knobs are Bubinga. A fine-screw feed mechanism sets blade depth; whilst a knurled clamping knob secures the blade. Weight just 55g, supplied in an embossed, French-fitted presentation box. Made in Canada.
Veritas Miniature Edge Plane
This is a 1/3-scale version of the Veritas iron edge plane. It is a fully functional miniature. Useful for fine trimming work on thin stock up to 10mm thick, such as with small-scale boxes, it fits the hand well, making it easy to control under fingertip pressure. The 60mm long body and lever cap are machined, investment-cast stainless steel. The 1.5mm thick by 12.7mm 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 is easily set by hand. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box, weight 45g. Made in Canada.
