A cap iron serves to stiffen a plane blade, helping to damp vibration and reduce the potential for blade chatter. Made of corrosion-resistant A2 steel, the Veritas 1/8" thick cap irons are sized to fit Stanley and Record planes. The leading edge of the cap iron is machined with a relief angle to ensure it always contacts the face of the blade, so no gap can form. Available in 2" and 2.3/8" widths with 2" suitable for No.4 and 5 planes and 2.3/8" for 4.1/2, 5.1/2, 6 and 7.
