Your MTC Low Angle Jack Plane
Your MTC Low Angle Jack Plane is one of the most versatile tools you can have on your bench. The three different blade types available makes switching between shaving end grain through to smoothing figured timbers a breeze. The easy blade adjustment and shaped timber handles and will make it hard for you to put this plane down. Welcome to the MTC family.
The blade is set bevel-up in the cast steel plane bed at 12 degrees providing you with a very cool low angle of attack. And because the blade fixes hard down on the plane casting, the blade’s cutting edge is provided with maximum support no matter the terrain.
3 angled blades available
Your MTC Low Angle Jack is supplied with a blade sharpened to 25 degrees. Along with the 12 degree bed, you now have an effective cutting angle of 37 degrees - perfect for shaving end grain. Also available are blades ground to 38 degrees suitable for smoothing, and 50 degrees for smoothing figured material. Blades are easily swapped in and out of the plane by removing the lever cap. All MTC blades are made from M2 High Speed Steel. Visit the MTC Plane Jack Plane Blade page to purchase additional blades.
M2 High Speed Steel blades
MTC has chosen M2 High Speed Steel (HSS) for the blades. M2 HSS has high abrasion resistance which means it will hold a sharp edge much longer than many other steels. This also means that it may take a little longer to bring up an edge. Don’t worry, you will be leaving your sharpening gear on the shelf for a lot longer too. MTC plane blades are also thicker than the average plane, this eliminates vibration is the cut, ensuring a smooth uniform finish.
Easy and precise depth and lateral blade adjustment
The MTC Low Angle Jack features an easy to adjust, precise depth and lateral blade adjuster. Twist the knurled knob to set the depth of cut. Slide side to side to skew the blade within the plane mouth. The whole assembly comes apart easily for regular maintenance.
The plane mouth is fully adjustable. Twist the front handle to release the toe. Use the mouth adjustment lever to set the mouth width opening to suit the work at hand. Close the mouth up tight for difficult figured materials. Open wide to make shavings fast.
Your MTC plane is delivered securely packaged in a foam lined cardboard box. Inside is a QR code you can scan to download your comprehensive Owner’s Manual. Visit the Melbourne Tool Company website for additional products, information downloads and video content.
