jointer, jointer plane, jointing plane, long plane(noun)
a long carpenter's plane used to shape the edges of boards so they will fit together
The jointer plane is a type of hand plane used primarily to straighten the edges of boards in the operation known as jointing. A jointer plane may also be used to flatten the face of a board. Its long length is designed to 'ride over' the undulations of an uneven surface, skimming off the peaks, gradually creating a flat surface. In thicknessing or preparing rough stock, the jointer plane is usually preceded by the jack plane and followed by the smoothing plane. Jointer planes are typically 20 to 24 inches long. There is also a shorter version of the jointer plane known as the fore plane which is around 18 inches long.
