  • This item: Bench Dog® Tools No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane $159.99

Bench Dog's No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane is among the most versatile planes available. Thanks to its adjustable mouth, it can take rough surfacing cuts and fine smoothing cuts equally in stride. The 25° blade is set bevel-up at a low bedding angle of 12°, creating a total effective angle of 37°. This low attack angle slices through difficult grain, including end grain. The blade is exceptionally thick for chatter-free planing. 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 to within a few thousandths of an inch. The blade is made from thick 3/16'' 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.


Features:

  • Ideal for flattening, squaring, smoothing and shooting end grain
  • Ductile cast iron body for superior strength and resistance to impact
  • Adjustable mouth lets you narrow the opening for fine shavings
  • Solid brass cap iron and threaded fittings for smooth action
  • 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

New #62 hand plane
I was very pleased with the quality of this item...it is well made. I haven't got to use it much yet, but I did find the blade adjustment difficult to get to. This is inherent with the design of the tool, otherwise I am pleased so far.

The description says the blade is hardened carbon steel. Is this O1 or A2 steel?
Blagtoof on Oct 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Well, "hardened carbon steel" isn't tool steel. O1 and A2 are tool steels. If it is what they say, that iron is going to be pretty useless.
Is there a toothed blade for this plane?
Kraftsman on Sep 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am not certain......I have not heard of any available extras for this one.
