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" plane 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

  • Orders outside of Canada MUST include preparation service in order to ensure the plane is perfect before we ship it overseas.
  • Heavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings.

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

  • Thick (.0125 inch) steel blade and chipbreaker dampens vibration making solid planing.

  • Rockwell 60-62 hardness blade
  • 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.  We provide a complete plane preparation service, so that no set-up is required by you. Your plane will be ready to use 'out-of-the-box!  Our Plane Preparation Service includes:

  • Chamfer / ease the edges of the plane.

  • Tune the lateral adjustment lever.

  • Remove all of the shipping grease.

  • Ensure the sides are within +/- 0.0015 of an inch square to the sole.
  • 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.
