Review

This is the Chevy pickup truck of jack planes: a midpriced, no-frills performer that gets the job done. Out of the box, the blade and sole needed flattening, but worked great after that.
The carbon-steel blade dulled quickest of those we tested, but sharpened easily. The Bailey-type blade adjuster proved easy to use for setting the cutting depth, and you can close up the mouth by moving the frog forward, but it’s not as easy as a movable toe that slides front to back. The bubinga handles are a nice touch.
