The No. 7 is known as a "jointer". It features the same blade and width as the No. 6, but it is 22" long (41/4" longer) and weighs 91/2 lbs. (nearly 2 lbs. heavier), making it almost the same weight as a Stanley No. 8. The No. 7 is used for truing edges prior to glue-up and flattening boards or large surfaces like tabletops. We found the extra heft came in handy when dealing with any grain that might have given a lighter plane trouble and was less tiring to use.
Like previous WoodRiver Bench Hand Planes is based on the reliable Bedrock design and features heavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings, fully machined adjustable Bedrock frogs and T10 blades. WoodRiver have changed the shape of the rear handle and increased the diameter of the blade adjustment wheel to make advancing the blade a bit easier, and have improved the lateral adjustment lever and added a traditional style bearing for better control of the blade. They have made numerous changes to the castings that result in better "feedback" and a solid feel to the user. Working closely with their own manufacturer, they have continued to make improvements in machining, finish and functionality which we feel have yielded hand planes that are meant to be used and offer an extraordinary value.
