Sargent #114 Jack Plane (My #1414-051720-1)
The only thing I’ve done to this “last production” model of this Sargent plane and put a slight camber on the blade and removed a few minor nicks in the process.
This later model has plastic knob and tote, but it’s not a flimsy plastic like some of the cheaper models. You can also see that although Sargent followed most other manufacturer of this time period in reducing production cost, the mass at the bottom of this frog, and in the frog seat makes this one of the better models in this price range. Although it’s probably not one of the best planes ever made, it’s still a very usable hand plane and works very well.
Width of plane 2 9/16″
Blade width 2″
weight 4# 14oz
