No. 6 Fore Plane

The No. 5 1/2, as the name suggests, is halfway between a No. 5 and a No. 6. Compared to the No. 5, its longer length and wider blade make a better choice for flattening boards and truing panels. The extra mass gives it more heft, a great help when doing the initial surface preparation on a board. At the same time, being slightly lighter and shorter than its larger cousin, it is more manageable, and yet equally as good for fore-plane work. The No. 5 1/2 makes an excellent choice for use on a shooting board.

Fore-most quality.

The sole is 375mm long with a 60mm wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality.
