Bench Dog® Tools No. 5 Jack Plane
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. Quality materials, precision machining and solid construction result in a hand plane that's an absolute pleasure to use. The sole is precision ground flat. The blade is made from thick 1/8'' hardened carbon steel for reduced chatter and excellent edge retention. Solid sapele is used for the comfortable tote and knob, adding a touch of elegance. Each plane includes a case, sock, manual and a Certificate of Inspection with measurements specific to your plane for sole flatness and blade hardness.

The sole was flat to indicated spec.
The adjustment knob has about two and a half turns of lash, making adjustments tedious.
The yoke for the angle adjustment is plastic - for who knows what reason.
It does have a good weight and with a properly honed iron puts out a respectable chip.
