Quangsheng No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane

138.5

The Quangsheng low angle jack is the Swiss army knife of hand planes, and an excellent choice for beginners looking for a straightforward, versatile, multi-function tool as their first premium bench plane.

Since the whole point of a bevel up plane is its versatility, we supply the Quangsheng No 62 with the standard 25 degree iron and offer the option of adding the 38 degree and the 50 degree cutting irons at a special discount when purchased with the plane. With the 25 degree blade installed the low effective pitch makes it a superb choice for shooting endgrain and planing mild straight grained timber. With the 38 degree blade installed it functions in much the same way as any other york pitch plane. Its reasonably long sole means that you can take component sized pieces from sawn to four squared with a sensible degree of accuracy. With the 50 degree blade installed you are getting much closer to a scraping action; using slow strokes and a very fine set, highly figured timber, burrs and patches of reversing grain will all give up their hidden beauty without any nonsense.

The low angle jack plane has an adjustable mouth that can be closed up for precision work or opened for heavier stock removal. The side wings provide ample stability for shooting without resricting access to the blade, lever cap and adjuster. Toothed irons for tearout free stock removal in figured timber are now also available separately.

Specifications:

  • Precision ground, unbreakable CR40 alloy steel casting.
  • Low ratio Norris type combined lateral and depth of cut adjustment.
  • Brushed finish stainless steel lever cap.
  • Hardwood handles.
  • Conforms to British Standard.
  • Sole Dimensions 14in x 2-7/16in (355mm x 62mm)
  • Blade Dimensions: 2in x 4-1/2in (50mm x 114mm)

 

Supplied as standard with the 25 degree iron.

To choose the 38 degree and 50 degree cutting irons, just choose the option on the left.

Please note that we are unable to ship Quangsheng products to North America due to retail exclusivity restrictions.

Amazing Plane
I had some really nasty Pine timber that I was going to throw away. But With the 25 degree blade set for a very fine shaving, and the mouth closed up, it came out like glass.

I'm very Impressed with the all-round quality of this plane.

Top quality plane, excellent value for money.
Very pleased with this plane. Just a tiny amount to take off the toe and heel to flatten the sole but otherwise very impressive build quality. I used a so-called heirloom plane on a cabinet-making course, this is a very close copy and in use I defy a "mortal" woodworker to feel any difference.

Waters and Acland Furniture School
These Quangsheng planes from Workshop Heaven are excellent quality and great value for money. Buy them here as others claiming to be from the same factory just won't have the same quality control. We have a number of these planes both in our school and also in our fine furniture workshop.

Brilliant plane
After much research I went for this plane, even though I had a slight niggle that it was made in the far east. When it arrived I was blown away by the build quality. The chip breaker is well made as are the three irons supplied. A top notch well made plane at the most amazing price.

Better value than a Stanley Sweetheart
I can't justify to myself (or my dear wife) splashing out on Veritas or Lie-Nielsen. I tried a Stanley SW 62 low angle jack and had to send it back. I spent the refund - and a little more - on one of these and I am so pleased with it - an excellent tool, beautifully made.

An excellent addition to my tool kit.
I am very pleased with this plane. It is of excellent quality and with the inclusion of the additional blades is also very versatile. Highly recommended.

Excellent Addition To Workshop
Had rare chance today to use oak.
04 and 51/2 planes, and this one with its standard cutter badly tore strips out of the grain, but a change to the 50 degree cutter resulted in perfectly smooth edges. A change back to the standard cutter made trimming the end grain remarkably easy. VERY IMPRESED!

Whats the point???
Why bother to ask for a customers review on a product when you only post the ones you choose? The plane I ordered from you was seriously sub standard and poorly machined. I can only assume that the reviews you have posted are from inexperienced wood workers with insufficient knowledge on the matter.

An excellent and versatile plane
The build quality is excellent for the price. It has a nice weight to it and with the 3 blades provided it is possible to set it up to create a lovely smooth finish on even the most awkward and wild timbers.

Great allrounder.
Solid build quality and with three different blades extremely versatile. If you want to keep your kit simple couple this plane with the low angle block plane with additional blades. These two will cover a wide variety of tasks across a range of woods. Close to Veritas quality at half the price.

I recommend any Quangsheng plane!
I already have a Quangsheng #4 and #6, with Matthews advice the #62 would be better value to me than a #5 jack plane because of its versatility being 'Swiss Army knife of a plane'. Indeed it is! Has good weight to it, smooth adjustments, irons that take a fine edge. I recommend any Quangsheng plane!
