The versatile jack plane is typically the first bench plane to touch rough lumber. Its uses range from flattening and squaring to preliminary smoothing. It is often called a fore plane because it is used ''before'' the finer work of the jointer and smoothing planes. The block plane features an acute bedding angle and finely adjustable mouth opening—ideal for adjusting miters, joinery and fitting doors and drawers. The frog and base are a sturdy one-piece casting. Both planes have blades machined from thick 1/8'' steel for minimal chatter, and are precision ground for flatness. The fine grain castings are on par with many top-of-the-line planes. Each plane includes a case, sock and a Certificate of Inspection with measurements specific to your plane for sole flatness and blade hardness.

Features:

  • No. 5 jack plane is ideal for flattening, squaring and initial smoothing
  • Block plane is ideal for trimming and adjusting miters, joinery and fitting doors and drawers
  • Easy depth-of-cut adjustment and lateral blade adjustment
  • Solid brass cap iron and threaded fittings for smooth action
  • Ductile cast iron body for superior strength and resistance to impact
  • Sole of plane and back of blade are flat to tight tolerances
  • Blade and sole are treated with a protective layer of oil
  • Certificate of Inspection included for each tool
  • Minimal setup and tuning required before use

I gave it four stars only because I am still learning how to use them. The 60-1/2 works great, I would give that one five stars. The no. 5 is a little harder to get the right adjustments for a novice user.
