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 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 Jack & Fore Planes

Product Description

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." These jack and fore planes are general-purpose bench planes. As their name implies they are a "jack of all trades" or used "before" other planes  and can perform most of the work of a smoother and with smaller work a jointer plane. I use my WoodRiver Jack plane for 85% of all my planing operations.  

  • 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.

  • Two WoodRiver Jack planes to choose from: #5, and #5-1/2.  One Fore plane - #6.  

    • Sorry no U.S. orders on WoodRiver planes - See Woodcraft.

    PLANE PREPARATION SERVICE. 

    For only $25 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!  All planes require some preparation if you want to get those nice wispy  shavings and a beautiful wood surface. Let us do the work for you.  (See Product Details tab for what is included).

      #5 Plane size: 2-7/16” wide x 13-7/8” long plane with a 2” wide blade.

      #5-1/2 Plane size: 2-7/8" wide x 14-15/16" long plane with a 2-3/8" wide blade.

      #6 Plane size: 2-7/8” wide x 17-3/4” long plane with a 2-3/8” wide blade.

      PLANE PREPARATION SERVICE.  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.
