Description Technical Specs Extended Information
The WoodRiver Block Hand Plane is based on the venerable Stanley #65 low angle and #18 standard angle “Knuckle Cap” design, generally considered one of best block plane designs around. With the widely recognized comfortable chrome plated Knuckle Cap, these block planes look like the standard and low angle versions 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 outfitted 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.
  • The No. 93 92 & 91 Shoulder plane combine the best of the Edward Preston and Sons’ plane designs with
  • modern WoodRiver® features to create a “new classic” with the look and feel of a
  • shiny antique but the body of shoulder plane equipped for serious shopwork,
  • whether cleaning up tenons, rabbets and dadoes or creating joints. The
  • WoodRiver® planes are the result of over two years of extensive prototyping and
  • testing to develop a classic look for a plane that works as good as it looks.
  • The classic shoulder plane features were retained – narrow body, slightly proud
  • blade (to clean corners), sides square to the sole, flat bottom and a necessary
  • robustness—but a major new feature was added, an adjustable toe used to control
  • the throat opening and help to minimize tear-out on end grain.
