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).

Wow this wonderful. My old fingers was having much difficulty in adjusting the phone blade . Now it easy to make those adjustments. THANK YOU
A life saver for old fingers
These are great, and so much better for my old football busted up fingers.
Does what Rob says it does
The good: makes it significantly easier to use the blade depth adjustment. It makes adjustment easier and more accurate because you're adjusting as much or as little as you intend. The not so bad: some minor roughness from machining. A little clean up and you're good to go.
The AdjuSTAR is great for those that have problems adjusting their plane blades. My plane seemed too tight and the extra leverage has made use of my plane much more enjoyable. It does take some getting used to and sometimes the arms are in a weird location for small adjustments but overall fantastic.
Excellent as always
Great product as always.
