The Stanley 14-inch No. 5 Contractor Grade Smooth Bottom Bench Plane has a gray, cast-iron base with precision-ground sides and a bottom that’s machined to be smooth and true. Created to work efficiently and easily with your bench-top projects, this plane has all the extra features you need to trim and fine-tune your work piece.
The plane features hardened, tempered-steel construction for precision-ground cutter edge durability that lasts long and true. Its fully machined and polished double-iron cutter and lever give you precise control over the piece at hand — no matter how hard or uneven the material may be, and the solid brass cutter-adjustment knob is rugged and durable. The frog seat is machined for precise mouth adjustment, and the kidney-shaped hole in the lever cap helps secure the cutter in place so it won’t budge, regardless of how rough you handle it. This professional-grade plane also boasts a quick-release cam lock that makes iron removal easy, plus high-impact polymer handles and knobs that are contoured and polished to give you a great grip that permits true accuracy and long use without fatigue. Top it all off with a durable epoxy coating, and you’ll enjoy heavy-duty use from this plane for years to come.
