JUUMA Jack Plane no. 5
The plane's body is made of stress-relieved gray cast iron. The frog is made of brass. The 3 mm thick high carbon steel blade is hardened to 61 - 63 HRC and connected with a thick and stable chipbreaker. The handles are made of Bubinga. With the introduction of this plane we trust to have closed the large gap between the cheap planes and the premium planes. This plane is the missing link regarding quality and price.

KUNZ PLUS Premium Line Jack Plane No. 5
It is here at last -- the long-awaited new plane from KUNZ!

The plane's body is made of stress-relieved gray cast iron. The sole is finished to a high standard and the cheeks are at a precise 90° to the sole. The relatively short iron, unlike the older Kunz #5, lies firmly on the cleanly machined top of the frog. The 3.5 mm thick iron is of optimized tool steel, hardened to 60 - 62 on the Rockwell Scale. A feature that will be appreciated by many is that cutting depth and blade angle is controlled with just one screw. The differentially cut threads on the screw provide a very fine and controlled adjustment of the cutting depth. One moves the frog in order to set the width of the mouth, but you are no longer required to detach the frog in order to do this; The frog can be loosened with the help of an Allen wrench provided with the plane. The frog itself is set in a carefully-machined groove, and so side-to-side adjustments are no longer necessary. The new plane's knob and grip are made of locally-harvested cherry wood with good ergonomics, and the tool lies easily in your hand.   Read more in the Kunzplus No. 4 description

All in all, it is safe to say that with this tool, Kunz has entered the ranks of premium tool makers!

KUNZ PLUS Premium Line Low Angle Jack Plane No. 62
The body of the plane is made of stress-relieved grey cast iron. The sole is finished to a high standard and the sides are at a precise 90 degree to the sole. The iron (blade) lies perfectly on top of the flawless frog. The milled frog has wedge shaped openings to the right and left where the bevel of the iron (blade) begins. This ensures a perfectly middle position of the iron (blade) and makes the lateral adjustment easier. The 5 mm iron (blade) is made of optimized tool grade steel that is hardened to 60 to 62 on the Rockwell scale. The cutting depth and the lateral adjustment can be done with just one screw. The screw has two successive threads which allow for a very delicate adjustment of the cutting depth. Loosening of the front knob will adjust the mouth width. Handle and knob are made from locally harvested cherry wood, and thanks to their ergonomic form are very comfortable to work with.

Veritas nr. 5-1/4W Bench Plane
The 5-1/4 was often referred to as a junior jack. At 305 mm (12 inch) long, it fell between the nr. 4 smooth plane at 254 mm (10 inch) long and the nr. 5 jack at 355 mm (14 inch) long.

The Veritas 5-1/4W varies from the traditional 5-1/4 in various ways, but the two most significant dimensional differences are that the Veritas has a 50 mm (2 inch) wide blade (rather than 44 mm - 1-3/4 inch) and the mouth is 110 mm (4-3/8 inch) back of the nose compared with 89 mm (3-1/2 inch) for the original. This extra length of sole in front of the blade makes it much easier to cut accurately because the extra-long nose makes it easier to maintain the sole flush to the material at the start of a cut. In fact, the combination of the mouth location and the very sensitive feed adjustment lets this plane serve as a jointer for most cabinet work, just as a nr. 5 is used as a jointer.

The 5-1/4W is made from ductile cast iron and has an adjustable frog with a combined feed and lateral adjust mechanism that is sturdy, yet sensitive and accurate. The easily adjusted frog is machined to fit snugly in the plane body and, combined with the 3.2 mm (1/8 inch) thick blade, eliminates virtually all blade chatter. Because the frog extends right through to the sole, adjusting the frog to narrow the mouth does not reduce blade support as it does in standard planes of this style.
