They are much improved. New size of tote fits larger hands better. The adjuster mechanism is much improved. I bought this WR 5 1\/2 and a premium 4 1\/2 by another company on the same day. The depth adjuster on the WR is absolutely better than the V3s and better than any other plane I own and I have and use tons of planes. Lastly, since I already have many vintage Jack planes, I chose the 5 1\/2 on a whim to see how I'd like the size. For the last year, I've kept WR 5 1\/2 under my bench because I use it constantly. I seldom touch the other Jacks anymore. Great product. I highly recommend this WR 5 1\/2 plane and also the WR 4 1\/2.\"\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e      - TenDriver December 2015\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e \u003c\/strong\u003e“I like to contribute reviews after the \"honeymoon period\" has worn off ... to that end this plane has been in use for over a year. I own 17 planes ... combination of Stanley (refurbished), L-N and Wood River. The Wood River planes came to my attention via Rob Cosman years ago and after picking up a #4 smoother to try I went on to purchase #3, #5, #6. I would match these against premium planes without hesitation ... in fact when speaking of performance why don't we just go ahead and put W R in the premium category. Are they usable right out of the box? ... no. But with minimal (and I do mean minimal) attention to the blade they are ready to go in minutes. I could go on and on but to sum it up I'd advise that if your on the fence deciding between W-R planes and the premium brands you are doing yourself a serious injustice if you don't grab a Wood River and just try it.”     \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e    -

WoodRiver No. 5-1/2 Jack Plane

Product Description

Sorry, our agreement with Woodcraft restricts us from shipping WoodRiver Planes to the U.S.

I own and recommend WoodRiver V3 planes. These planes are based on the reliable Stanley Bedrock design, are very well made, and have an excellent price point making them a "BEST VALUE."

Jack planes are general-purpose bench planes, typically with bodies between 13 and 16 inches long.  As the name implies they are a "jack of all trades" and can perform most of the work of a smoother and on small and medium stock can perform as a jointer plane.

I use my WoodRiver No. 5-1/2 Jack plane for 85% of all my planing operations.  It is my "go to" plan and I recommend it as your first plane purchase.

  • No. 5-1/2 Plane size: 2-7/8" wide x 14-15/16" long with a 2-3/8"-wide blade

  • Heavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings.

  • Fully machined adjustable frogs bedded at a 45 degree angle.

  • Thick steel blade and chipbreaker dampens vibration making solid planing.

  • Lightly finished Bubinga handles provide comfort and control.

  • Soles and sides are machined flat and square within tightly held tolerances.

  • Sorry, our agreement with Woodcraft restricts us from shipping WoodRiver Planes to the U.S.

PLANE PREP SERVICE. 

All planes require some preparation.  For a small fee we offer a complete plane preparation service, for one plane, so that no set-up is required by you. Your plane will be ready to use 'out-of-the-box!  (See Prep Service tab for what is included). 

    Our Plane Preparation Service includes:

    • Chamfer / ease the edges of the plane.

    • Tune the lateral adjustment lever.

    • Remove all of the shipping grease.

    • Flatten the back of the lever cap.

    • Flatten and fit the chip-breaker to the blade.

    • Apply a back bevel and sharpen the blade.

    • Test the plane for proper operation and set-up.

    • Apply a light coat of Camellia oil to prevent rust.
