VERITAS SCRUB PLANE, from Lee Valley Tools, is for flattening rough stock by hand. The single-iron tool —meaning there is no cap iron or chip breaker —features set screws along the side to prevent the blade from shifting sideways when knots are encountered. The plane is 11-1/4" long, weighs 3 lbs. and offers a blade edge ground with a 3" radius, so it can take an aggressive cut. It's sold with a high-carbon steel blade for $99 or an A2 tool steel blade for $119. Contact: Lee Valley Tools Ltd., P.O. Box 1780, Ogdensburg, NY 13669-6780. Tel: 800-871-8158.
