This blade is a direct replacement for the one included with your Bench Dog® Tools No. 4 Smoothing Plane (#58837, and also the older model) and No. 5 Jack Plane (#59102). Having a spare iron on hand ensures you'll always have a sharp edge to deal with challenging grain, and you can also purchase multiple blades and grind each to a different bevel angle to suit a range of applications. The blade is made from 1/8'' thick hardened carbon steel for reduced chatter and excellent planing characteristics.


Features:

  • Fits the Bench Dog No. 4 Smoothing Plane and No. 5 Jack Plane (#58837 and #59102, sold separately)
  • 1/8" thick carbon steel for chatter-free performance
  • May require honing

Really good experience with these blades. Great for the price. They work pretty well, but leave a bit of room for improvement. I'd still recommend them.

Always believe in being prepared by having an extra one on hand.

ain't nothing wrong with having a blade ready to go when you get a knick on the one you are using. I "RE-PURPOSE" old wood all the time and, well... you know what happens.

Good price, good product. I wish Rockler stocked other sizes.

Is this blade compatible with other planes? (Stanley Bailey, Craftsman, etc)
wood apprentice on Jan 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will fit Stanley, Craftsman, Sargent, Millers Falls, etc. BUT ...
The stock blades are thinner, so you might have a bit of trouble with how long the threads are on the screw that attaches your chip breaker. Most of these screws were made just barely long enough to do the job, so swapping your stock blade for a thicker model might mean that the screw is left holding on by just one thread. In this case, you might look for an upgrade for your chip breaker, or just simply be careful how tight you torque the screw down, so it doesn't get stripped.
Will this blade fit a no 5 stanley planer ?
Harry S on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Both use a 2" iron.
I have an old Stanley No 4 Bailey smoothing plane will this blade fit it?
Rebecca B on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will not work because the Stanley adjustment requires a fixed slot to allow raising & lowering blade.
How long is the blade?
MICHAEL A on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is 7.25 inches long. It is a good blade. Thicker than the original. I would prefer the original thickness but there is a "thicker-is-better craze" now among plane iron users/makers. The Bench Dog iron works just fine. No problem.
Where is the blade made?
