We don’t typically include tools in this column that we’ve not actually tested, but we’re making an exception for these five new bevel-down planes from Veritas (Nos. 4, 41⁄2, 5, 51⁄2 and 7 in the Stanley numbering system).

I got a preview of these at Lee Valley Tools in Ottawa in August; they were publicly released Sept. 13 (just days before this issue was printed). So far, I’ve only taken apart and partially reassembled one of the planes; we’ll have a full review when we get them in.

So why are we breaking our own rule? Quite simply, if these planes perform well, they could have a significant impact on the handplane market.
