Veritas DX60 Block Plane
This block plane is one of the finest planes we have ever made. It is made to exacting standards and features newly refined stainless steel hardware.

The knobs and wheel have elegant elliptical knurled edges for a firm grip. The lever cap has been extensively redesigned to integrate cleanly with the plane body and provide an almost continuous hand contact surface, with tactile cues for finger placement. The Norris-type adjuster mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments, making blade setting accurate and easy. The adjuster is locked to the body, and will not become inadvertently unseated.
Mouth adjustment is effected by loosening the stainless-steel locking knob. An unobtrusive set screw in the throat of the plane allows repeatable mouth positioning while at the same time preventing the movable toe from contacting the blade. The toe is completely enclosed by the body casting.

The contoured body is 7" long by 1 3/4" wide, and has a 12° bed angle. The body is accurately machined and surface ground so that the sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole, and the bed is flat and square to the sides, all to within 0.0015" deviation. The A2 tool steel blade is 13/8" wide, 9/64" (0.140") thick and hardened to Rc60-62. The blade has a primary bevel of 25°, and a 23° relief bevel to ease resharpening. The back of the blade is lapped flat within ±0.0002" (2 tenths of a thousandth of an inch) in the working area of the blade.
The DX60* block plane is made from our regular ductile iron, has a die-cast lever cap, and is finished with a durable powdercoat polymer paint. Made in Canada. Patent pending.
