A follower asked how the tote was mounted on the Veritas bevel up small smooth plane. The metal casting shown above is fitted tightly into a mortise machined into the tote. It is then pressed and epoxied into the tote from the bottom.

The bottom of the OEM Veritas BU small smoother.

The oblong boss of the cast metal part fits into a machined pocket in the plane and a bolt is run up from the bottom of the plane into the threaded hole in the metal casting.

To make a replacement tote for this Veritas plane I had to get this cast metal part from Lee Valley. I used this same threaded hole to attach the new tote blank to the new jig for shaping and sanding. Hope this answers any questions.

As always, thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.
