V3: Like our previous WoodRiver® Bench Planes, our version 3 is based on the reliable Bedrock design and feature heavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings, fully machined adjustable frogs and A-2 blades but we took the opportunity between manufacturing runs to do a critical review and make a few improvements. We’ve changed the shape of the rear tote and increased the diameter of the blade adjustment wheel to make advancing the blade a bit easier. We improved the lateral adjustment lever and added a traditional style bearing for better control of the blade. We’ve made numerous changes to the castings that result in better “feedback” and a solid feel to the user. Working closely with our own manufacturer, we’ve continued to make improvements in machining, finish and functionality which we feel have yielded hand planes that are meant to be used and offer an extraordinary value.

  • Modeled after the Bedrocks, Stanley Tool's very best line
  • WoodRiver® planes feature the same heavy castings and fully machined frogs
  • Lightly finished Bubinga handles provide comfort and control
  • Tools require minimal tune-up prior to use

Scrub Planes (Canadian orders only, please)

When a master uses a tool, it is like wearing a favorite baseball glove. Part of this is the mastery of a craft, but a big part is due to the quality of the tool that is used. In hand planes most masters look for the originals. The new Pinnacle® 40½ Scrub Plane is based on the tried and proven qualities of the early 1900s Stanley but with ergonomic and engineering improvements to create an American marvel.

The most discerning woodworker will notice the extra steel in key stress points of the base to ensure longevity and accurate performance. A walnut tote and knob, coupled with high-end fittings, create a fit and finish that exceeds the most discerning expectations for an heirloom tool.

Chisel Planes (Canadian orders only, please)

Think of a chisel plane as a chisel perched atop a wedge to control the angle, edge in front and a depth adjustment to control the cut. This simple idea has many practical applications from removing excess glue
to trimming proud dowels and pocket hole plugs.

WoodRiver Small Chisel Plane

WoodRiver Small Chisel Plane

This small chisel plane is not going to see daily use in your shop but when you need it you will be glad you have it. I am impressed with the quality of the casting and the clean machining. The blade is nice and thick and well prepared, should only take a minute to sharpen. This tool allows you to work into a vertical surface accurately. Remove glue, flush a plug or anywhere you have tried to use a plane blade lying flat.

Weighs 1 ½ lbs and is 5” long by 1 ¾ wide.

Block Planes (Canadian orders only, please)

The WoodRiver Block Hand Plane is based on the venerable Stanley #65 low angle and #18 standard angle “Knuckle Cap” design, generally considered one of best block plane designs around. With the widely recognized comfortable chrome plated Knuckle Cap, these block planes look like the standard and low angle versions of yester year. Upon closer inspection you’ll notice changes to the base castings which not only strengthen historically weak points of the original design, but also improve the blade bedding area. Improved blade adjustment mechanisms allow for crisp, easy adjustment of the blades using the rear adjustment knob. The adjustable mouth is very smooth to operate and allows fine tuning of the mouth for work ranging from wide open for heavy cutting to tight throat for control of tearout of difficult grain. The stress relieved ductile iron castings are precision machined, flat and square. Each plane is outfitted with a high carbon tool steel tool blade, which is hardened to Rc60-64 for maximum edge retention and ground to a 25° bevel. Blades should be honed prior to use..

  • Knuckle Style Lever Cap
  • 12° Bed Angle on low angle 20 degree on standard angle
  • High Carbon Tool Blade, 25° Blade Angle 1-5/8”W x 0.125”T

The body of the No. 91 is Cr40 stress-relieved ductile steel, machined square and flat, and the blade is Mn65 tool steel hardened to HRC60-64 which combines toughness with the ability to take a keen edge. The blade advancement mechanism is smooth and precise.
