The Verdict

Review By: I.Ball


Category: Old Jack Planes

Manufacturer: Stanley

Plane Type: Jack

Model No: 5 1/4

The Stanley number 5 1/4 plane is a narrow jack plane made from cast iron and fitted with hardwood handles.

The 5 1/4 is a narrower verion of the Stanley 5. See the Stanley 5 jack plane review for more general details about this plane.

There is a very similar plane to the Stanley 5 1/4 in the form of the Sargent 411 jack plane.

The Stanley 5 1/4 plane was strongly advertised as a plane for school workshops and was advertised as a junior plane.
