WoodRiver Replacement Plane Blade (1-5/8 inch)
WoodRiver V3 replacement blades are designed for WoodRiver hand-planes but they will also fit old Stanley and Record planes.
I always like to have a couple of extra plane blades sharpened and ready to go. If you watch my videos, take a careful look at the tool tray of my workbench and you will see about four or five already sharpened blades in my tool tray. This way when I need a sharp blade I just reach for a sharpened blade and change it out with the dull one. Later, I will sharpen the dull blade and put it in my sharpened tray ready at a moments notice.
WoodRiver blades are a great choice to replace your old Stanley or Record plane blades. At .125 inches thick, these WoodRiver blades are almost twice as thick and stiff as the original blade. This thickness reduces vibration and chatter, leading to improved performance. Note: You will likely have to use a file and open the throat on your older planes for these blades to fit.
1-5/8" Wide x 4-3/8" Long Blade.
Fits WoodRiver, Stanley, and Record Standard and Low Angle Block Planes.
High carbon steel blades.
25 degree primary bevel
Great to have some spares as I drop the blade out of the plane almost daily...
