Topic tags/keywords: veritas small plow plane beading

Posted this in the Modern American Hand Tool Forum, but in case it’s missed there, I post it here. I ordered a small plow plane in Jan. The website said the ship time would be delayed for a couple weeks. Later it said it wouldn’t be shipped until March. Today I checked my order status and the update page showed two plow planes. One said, “No Status Available.” The other said, “Reserved.” I emailed and asked what that meant and they said this:

Thank you for your inquiry. Please accept our apologies for the confusion on your Order, and the delay in providing your Plane to you . You should be receiving a letter from us soon regarding your purchase, however we can go ahead and tell you in advance here.

We’re actually in the midst of upgrading our Small Plow Planes, and will be providing you an upgraded model at no additional cost. These upgrades specifically are two manufacturing changes that will further refine and expand the Planes capabilities. The first is a modified depth stop clamp, which will hold the depth stop skate more securely than in previous versions. The second, and more significant change, is a re-milling of the skate, to accommodate our newly released Beading Blades (05P52.xx)!

These new blades are available in 1/8”, 3/16” and ¼” bead diameters, with a 1/16” groove or landing on either side. Additional details can be found on our website, when they become available mid-march, at the same time as your Plow Plane.

They didn’t send a photo of the new version, but I look forward to seeing the changes.

Here it is. And with full cutter set, $469. Not a #45 resurrection, looks like a single beading cutter. Interesting.

And isn’t it great that Lee Valley offers an upgrade to those who have previously purchased their previous plow plane.

Thanks Rob!
