Jack Plane

Jack Plane

The jack plane is made of two lengths 14 inches and 15 inchesand is furnished with all the fittings and adjustments described in the previous page, woodworking planes. This plane is used for removing the rough surface left by the saw and preparing the wood for finer dressing. Its cutter is usually slightly rounded toward its corners, so as to allow a considerable bite to be given, by having the cutting-edge sufficiently projected beyond the sole of the plane to enable it to cut well into the rough surface of the wood. This plane is practically indispensable. In using the jack plane, it is usual to move it each time an easy arm-length; the shavings removed will, accordingly, be short and somewhat thick, although the latter will depend on the projection given to the cutter. Straight strokes must be made with this plane.
