Reply To: Veritas Plough Plane short bars

Antonio Santos

Thanks for the input, Ed.
I managed to get around the issue and changed my design to be able to groove about 40mm from the edge.
I used the plough plane with the rod bars right at the limit, with the fence at its maximum range.
However, I still don’t understand why the rod bars are short compared to a stanley or record.
It’s a shame, in a product of extreme quality.
I’m still thinking of selling mine, because of this situation.
