rough stock. Machined frog and cutter seatings help eliminate blade chatter.

A very good planer for general and preparation work. If you find the old version of number 5 (with wooden handles) in good condition, you would probably be much more satisfied. Also the no 5 1/2 "Jack" (broader by 3/8 inch, slightly longer and heavier, but regrettfully discontinued) should be considered.
