The Veritas Shooting Plane and Vogt Super Chute

R S Veritas Shooting Plane


















I really like the new Veritas Shooting Plane. The shallow 12 degree bed angle positions the iron in line with the direction of the cut. Not having a frog mechanism reduces the mass, not a deficit in my opinion. When the handle is far back from the cutting action and the plane top heavy in proportion to the base, as in this case and the Stanley or L-N Shoot Board Planes, the user needs to exert rotational wrist pressure to counteract tipping or rocking and the frog’s extra weight and mass add to the required effort of the wrist.

The  PM-V11™ blade is easy to sharpen and hones to a fine edge. The adjustable Parallel Guide Strip on the Vogt Super Chute, edged with Acetal, keeps the plane gliding in its cut.

    A ramped bed that un-skews the skewed blade of the shooting plane, can you explain the idea behind it? Spreading blade wear …

    You are correct that some of the skew is offset, going from 20 down to fifteen degrees. The advantage of spreading blade wear is no small advantage, however. I like the ergonomics of the ramped shooting board, inviting you to lean and use that weight. The Veritas Plane is working wonderfully.

    You don’t really un-skew the the skewed blade if your base has a slope. What you do is to rotate the workpiece.
    The plane is still moving forward and the blade has a constant 20 degrees angle from the direction of movement.
