Veritas Scrub plane

The tool of choice for major stock removal, a scrub is not usually used parallel to the grain, but at an angle of 30° or more. The blade edge is ground with a 3" radius, so it takes an aggressive cut. This is the tool to use to get stock into a condition where you then can use a smooth plane. The curved cutting edge of the 1 1/2" wide by 3/16" thick blade gives a distinctive, hand-worked texture to the workpiece. This is a single-iron tool, meaning there is no cap iron or chip breaker. Set screws along the side prevent the blade from shifting sideways when it runs into a knot. Blade is available in high-carbon steel (Rc58-60) or PM-V11 steel (Rc61-63). Measures 10 3/4" × 2 1/4" and weighs 3 lb. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and ground so the sole is flat. A refined yet rugged performer.
