There is no reason you can’t adjust a jack as fine as a smoother. Both the #4 and #5 have the same adjustments and dimensions.

The solution to the hassle of switching back and forth is to buy a dedicated shooting plane. I find #5’s and other mfr’s equivalents all the time for around $12 at antique stores. Any style will do so long as it is a decent brand.

My first jack was a $12.50 Keen Kutter K5… with the bedrock style bed. Surprisingly while I find #5’s and #3’s everywhere, #4’s are proving to be rare around here.
