Introducing the T33283 Premium No. 5 Jack Plane
The T33283 Premium No. 5 Jack Plane is designed for manual smoothing and flattening of rough-sawn or distorted wood surfaces. Categorized as a medium-length plane within the Stanley numbering system, it is suitable for leveling out bumps due to its extended length while remaining lightweight for extended usage.
Measuring 14" in length and 2" in width, the No. 5 is utilized for dimensioning, truing up rough edges, and preparing surfaces for fore or jointer planes.
Constructed with cast-iron bodies featuring precision-ground soles and sides, these planes offer durability and flatness for accurate planing. The adjustable blade mechanism allows for advancement, retraction, and side-to-side adjustments, achieving a virtually "zero" mouth opening for fine shavings, even on challenging wood types.
The blade is made from high carbon steel, hardened and tempered to 60-62 Rockwell C, and precision ground to 3mm thickness. The single-piece cap iron design ensures rigid clamping during use.
Notable features include stainless steel frog locating pins and screws, a shaped and sealed hardwood knob and handle, and a polished brass lever cap, screws, and adjusting wheel.
The T33283 Premium No. 5 Jack Plane is recommended for woodworkers seeking a professional hand-finish on their projects. Whether thicknessing or achieving a perfect fit with fine shavings, this all-purpose plane serves various purposes.
The T33283 comes with a 1-year warranty covering parts and ensuring freedom from factory defects.
