Though Lee Valley Tools describes this tool as a “plane” in its catalog, it actually has a lot more in common with another piece of military hardware: a tank.

This low-angle jack plane tips the scales at almost 6 pounds – more than a pound-and-a-half heavier than my old Stanley jack plane. It’s also an inch longer and 3⁄8″ wider than my jack. The cast sole of the Lee Valley plane and the iron are both a whopping 3⁄16″ thick.
