The Luban Number 5-1/2 Jack Plane Offers More Bang for Your Buck

You could think of it as two planes in one - a short try plane and a panel plane. The Luban #5-1/2 will take broad, shallow shavings and will tidy up already straight pre-machined timber nicely. The extra weight also makes it an excellent choice for truing up those wider boards.

A popular choice for students and beginner woodworkers. It's well balanced and if you get it set up correctly, makes a great compromise if you can’t quite stretch to a dedicated try and smoothing plane.

Stanley's perfect design with Luban Planes' famed quality and reliability

The design of these high-performance bench planes are based on the famous Stanley Bedrock series (regarded as one of the very best designs of all time) with a fully machined frog and body seating pad. The Bedrock design ensures the blade is held with absolute rigidity thereby preventing chatter. The sole of the planes are heavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings that are machined and lapped smooth to tight tolerances so little tuning needs to be done to get them working immediately.
