This is a vintage Stanley No.5 jack plane. Featuring a wooden tote and knob and a re-honed, razor-sharp cutting iron. Tastefully restored and ready to go back to work. Ships to UK/USA.
The jack plane is a true all-rounder and can be used for smoothing or stock preparation.
WOODEN TOTE & KNOB This Stanley plane has a wooden knob (front) and a wooden tote (rear). Both are made from beechwood. I have carefully removed the old finish to retain the patina laid down by decades of woodworking use and then treated with hard wax oil and paste wax for a silky smooth finish.
RAZOR-SHARP CUTTING BLADE The plane is rust-free and all metal surfaces have been cleaned and oiled. The cutting blade has been ground to a 25 degree cutting bevel, then honed on a diamond stone (300 & 1000 grit) and stropped for a razor-sharp edge. There is plenty of hard steel left in the cutter.
READY FOR USE AGAIN Restoring old hand-tools, particularly bench planes, is something of a passion for me. This particular Stanley No.5 came to me requiring some restoration. Having been through my process, the plane is now ready for work once again.
Will you be the one to put it to good use...?
