Old Jack Planes
A list of old jack planes with reviews containing lots of information
and photos on each plane in the list.
Jack planes were one of the workhorses of the hand planes. This is one of the most common secondhand planes you will find on the market, probably second to only the number 4 smoothing plane. The jack plane is longer than a number 4 smoothing plane and shorter than a fore plane. Jack planes are commonly known as a number 5 or number 5 1/2 with the 5 1/2 plane being the wider of the two.
There were many old jack plane makers, the most common were the Record 05 jack plane and Stanley 5 jack plane whose lineage in some form continues today.
