Rob Cosman's Plane AdjuSTAR - WoodRiver & Luban Version
Do you find that using your plane's adjusting knob is a bit difficult? Well we did and decided to fix that by creating our Plane AdjuSTAR adjusting knob to replace the original adjusting knob on most WoodRiver bench planes.
Our Plane AdjuSTAR is larger and much easier to use than the original adjusting knob allowing you to make adjustments to your blade depth setting easily. Our design makes it easier for you to reach and turn the adjuster with your fingers and easier for you to reach the frog adjustment screw with a screwdriver. We know you will love our Plane AdjuSTAR.
- Fits WoodRiver & Luban bench planes numbers 4-1/2, 5, 5-1/2, 6, and 7. (WILL NOT fit number 1, 3,or 4).
- The Lie-Nielsen version fits Lie-Nielsen bench planes numbers 4-1/2, 5, 5-1/2, 6, 7, and 8. (WILL NOT fit number 1, 3, or 4, or 5-1/4).
- Requires removal of handle to install (see installation video).
- 1-7/8 inch outside diameter.
This new style adjustment knob/star is a game changer. No longer do I have to fumble with the stock knob, but can easily adjust my plane iron with ease. Great innovation to my plane. Thanks again Rob!
Didn’t think I needed this but Once you try it you won’t look back. Makes for easy adjustments to your blade depth
If you have ever used a hand plane, you know the pain that is depth adjustment knob. Well for some reason it’s taken this long for someone to build a better knob. AdjuSTAR makes adjusting the depth of your plane a snap. I can actually make fingertip adjustments on the fly. Quality made from a single piece on metal, these are built to last.
The Adjustar IS a game changer!
What can I say, I've ordered from Rob and Company before and the story is always the same. Excellent product/Service/People. Can't tell you how much easier it is to make fine adjustments on the fly with the Adjustar. Simply terrific. The ease that you can advance the blade with the increase in torque allows you to put a slightly tighter set on the cap iron. This keeps the adjustment locked better in my opinion. The personal call from Rob is a nice touch (Dovetail saw) too. I mean really, who does that? Fantastic, and I'm a big fan!
