Default The Veritas Shooting Plane and Vogt Super Chute

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.
