German craftsmanship is evident in this specially-designed plane that's versatile enough to do the rough work of a jack plane as well as the finer work of a smoothing plane. The plane body is manufactured from durable stress-annealed cast iron, and its sole and sides have been precisely milled flat and square.
It features a blade adjuster design that's based on the Norris A style planes. A single post with two sets of threads contained in two barrel-style nuts smoothly controls the depth of cut as well as the lateral position of the blade. The frog can be positioned using a fine adjustment screw that allows you to close the throat opening for controlling tearout on problem woods.
The plane iron is a full 3/16" thick and hardened and tempered to Rc60-62. Importantly, all surfaces of the chip breaker and cap iron are finely machined to reduce blade chatter. The rear handle and front knob are made from European cherry. The blade adjuster knob and lever cap screw are polished brass.
The number 62 Low Angle Jack Plane is 13-3/4" long and has a 2" wide cutter. Weight is 5 lbs
