Quangsheng No. 5 1/2 with Free Extra Iron

In many ways it is better to think of the 5-1/2 as a short try plane or panel plane, rather than a broad jack plane. It takes a broad, shallow shaving, so if you work with reasonably straight or pre-machined material it will deal with small corrections on wide surfaces very efficiently.

Conversely, if you work with timber that starts off like a propeller blade, the narrower No.5 honed with a steep camber and used across the grain (the traditional function of a jack plane) might be more suitable.

The 5-1/2 is a popular choice with students and beginners, it is comfortable, well balanced and if set up carefully makes a reasonable compromise if you can’t have dedicated try and smoothing planes.
