H. T. CO. Iron Jack Plane No. 5 1/2 size
This is a very nice quality No. 5 1/2 iron Jack plane. Much like the Stanley 5 1/2 (older style) but has a 2 1/4" wide cutter. This one is marked "H. T. CO." on the cutter with no other marker's marks noted. Feature over 95% original Japanning intact, sharp cutter near full length, nice solid hardwood handle and knob, clean bare iron surfaces, no cracks, very light wear. It does have the lateral control and depth adjustment features, no frog position adjustment, just like the older Stanley style. This plane appears to be like a Stanley type 8-9 with a replacement blade. The blade is of very good quality, and somewhat thicker than the Stanley blades, down near the cutting edge, tapering to the same thickness as the Stanley blade at the lateral adjustment area. A a very nice plane! Recommended!
