Rob Cosman's Plane AdjuSTAR
Do you find that using your WoodRiver or Lie-Nielsen 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 and Lie-Nielsen 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 bench planes numbers 4-1/2, 5, 5-1/2, 6, and 7. (WILL NOT fit number 1, 3,or 4).
- 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).
- Not designed to fit any other plane brands.
- 1-7/8 inch outside diameter.
I installed two of these AdjuSTAR knobs on Wood River planes. They install and work exactly as Rob’s video described. My arthritic fingers really appreciate the greatly eased adjustability on my planes. I hope you can bring out more sizes to fit other WR and L-N planes. To anyone thinking about it, they are absolutely worth it.
The Plane Star Adjust is a stellar product. I always struggled with turning the knurled wheel on my 5 1/2 Wood River plane. With Star Adjust, it is quite easy. Kudos to whoever thought of this idea. Hope there is a patent pending......
Love it. Great for my aging hands. Easy to install.
Upgrading my #5 1/2 WR hand plane with the AdjuSTAR was a great move~! So much easier to make adjustments, but I do have to be careful now to not over adjust. Extending and retracting the plane blade has never been easier. Thank you Rob for such a game changing design~!
