WoodRiver Standard Block Hand Plane with Adjustable MouthWR_BLKSTD
The WoodRiver Standard Block Plane is based on the Stanley No 18 "Knuckle Lever Cap" design, considered one of best block plane designs in history.
The specifications on these V3 WoodRiver planes are made exclusively for Woodcraft in USA 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. Upon closer inspection you'll notice changes to the base castings which not only strengthen historically weak points of the original design, but also improve the blade bedding area. Improved blade adjustment mechanisms allow for crisp, easy adjustment of the blades using the rear adjustment knob. The adjustable mouth is very smooth to operate and allows fine tuning of the mouth for work ranging from coarse to 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.
