    Another tool on the roundtoit pile was tripped over so I quickly stripped it for a tidy up.
    I’ve not done a plane for a while and the last one I did was and still is a delightful tool to use once lapped and set properly square and true.
    So I’ve had this one for a while, picked it up somewhere along the way.
    I think it’s a bit of a mix n match with a later top plate but it’s not done much work.
    I’ve stripped it cleaned up and started refinishing it.

    some bits cleaned, polished and almost ready for reassembly
    Plane irons still need setting and sharpening too.

    And primed and painted the main body after lapping the sole and sides

    So I put it back together today, waxed the handles and polished up all the screws
    Plane iron needs a proper sharpen but I couldn’t find my stone and guide so it just had a square up on the wet stone grinder.
    Seemed ok though

    Ahhhh, a venerable Jack plane; nicely done. :thumbup:
    What do they call it over here in the UK, ………………...a tool for " bothering wood " ? :)

    I always thought a No.4 was a Jack plane ?

    Overseas, the No. 4 is generally considered an all around smoothing plane.

    No.2-41/2 are smoothers

    5 and 5 1/2 are jacks

    6-8 are tri planes/ jointing planes.

    The Stanley 5, 5 1/4, and 5 1/2 were listed as Jack planes in the catalogs, the No.2 through 4 variations are Smoothing planes, and the No. 6 through 8 variations are known as Jointer's.

    Edit: mtt.tr beat me to it. ;)
