Sargent 414 Plane Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Jack Planes

Manufacturer: Sargent

Plane Type: Jack

Model No: 414


The Sargent jack plane VBM number 414 is a good old jack plane which closely resembles the old Stanley number 5 jack planes.

The Sargent 414 is fitted with a flat face frog which is equipped with the typical lateral lever adjuster on top of the frog and the typical brass blade depth adjuster found at the rear of the plane.

The frog face is the popular flat design which is a slightly better design for dealing with chatter.

This US made plane is equipped with typical designs of plane blade, cap iron, lever cap, and plane handles.

The plane is finished with a black finish which instantly gives the plane the look of a Stanley jack plane.

The Sargent 414 plane is one of a whole range of Sargent planes which competed with the dominant Stanley plane range.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
