For a low angle jack I suggest a premium plane, specifically the Veritas (why over the LN, I will explain in a moment). The cost of a good old Stanley #62 is just to high in comparison. The reason I prefer The Veritas to the LN for a low angle jack is two-fold, 1 the availability of PM-V11 steel which I have come to really prefer and the fact the Veritas BU jack shares blades with the Veritas BU smoother. Sharing blades cuts the cost of having extra blades for different bevel angles and expands both planes capabilities for less money.
