The WoodRiver Low Angle Block Plane is based on the classic Stanley No 65 low angle "Knuckle Lever Cap" design, considered one of best block plane designs.

The specifications on these V3 WoodRiver planes are made exclusively for Woodcraft and only sold by us in the UK.  With the comfortable chrome plated Knuckle Cap, these block planes look like the Blocks Planes of yester year. But upon closer inspection improvements to the base castings have been made to strengthen the historically weak points of the original design, this also improve the blade bedding area.  Improved blade adjustment mechanisms allow for crisp, easy adjustment using the rear adjustment knob. The adjustable mouth is very smooth to operate and allows fine tuning of the mouth for the finest work creating whisper thin shavings. The stress relieved ductile iron castings are precision machined, flat and square.

Each plane is fitted with a high carbon tool steel tool blade, which is hardened to Rc60-64 for maximum edge retention and ground to a 25° bevel. We recommend sharpening the blades prior to use, however they're impressively sharp right out of the box.

    WoodRiver - Low Angle Block Hand Plane with Adjustable Mouth

    Easy to order and quick delivery.
    I've been using it for about two weeks, Very impressed.
    What a great tool, a joy to use straight from the box and even better with a little fettling
    So easy to adjust and the adjustable throat is a great aid. The Rob Cosman video subscription is an added bonus.

    Wood River Low angled bock plane

    Over all a very well machined plane, though the sole needed a bit of flattening, there was hollow in front and behind the mouth, also the sliding toe plate did not meet the mouth square, there as gap of about 1mm at one end, but with a bit of fettling every thing was fine, good thick blade that cut really well after sharpening, no t rouble in getting the super thin ribbon shavings. Looking forward when funds allow to purchase the wood river jack plane. Access to Rob Cosman videos that comes with plane is an absolute bonus . Thanks Rob.
