Sorry, our agreement with Woodcraft restricts us from shipping WoodRiver Planes to the U.S.

I own and recommend WoodRiver V3 planes. Their block planes are based on the venerable Stanley #65 low angle and #18 standard angle “Knuckle Cap” design, generally considered the best block plane designs around.  As with all WoodRiver planes, they are very well made and have an excellent price point, making them a "BEST VALUE."

Our Woodriver low angle block plane receives our Cosman preparation service so they are 100% ready to use out of the box.  See prep service below for description of what we do.

I prefer the low angle block plane over the standard angle for ergonomic reasons.  The lower lever cap nestles in your palm for better control and a more comfortable grip.  I recommend a low angle block plane as your second plane purchase, after buying a Jack plane. 

Plane Description:

  • Plane dimensions: 2"wide x 7" long. 

  • 12 degree bed angle.

  • High carbon tool steel tool blade, 1-5/8" wide x 0.125" thick which is hardened to Rc 60-62 for maximum edge retention and ground to a 25° primary bevel angle. 

  •  Made from stress-relieved ductile iron castings.

  • Chrome plated Knuckle Cap.

  • Fully machined blade bedding surface to significantly reduce chatter.

  • Blade adjustment mechanism allows for crisp, easy adjustment of the blade using the rear adjustment knob.

  • The mouth can be adjusted from wide to extremely narrow in order to create whisper thin shavings to control tear out.

  • The stress relieved ductile iron castings are precision machined, flat and square.

Plane Preparation Service:  All planes require some preparation.  Our complete plane preparation service makes it 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:

  • Remove all shipping grease
  • Chamfer / ease the edges of the plane.

  • 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.

1st purchase from robcosman

I am happy with the low angle block plane and am satisfied with the communications and processes that were involved in acquiring it. I am saving up to purchase a bench plane.

Low Angle Block Plane-well prepared--Super email follow up

I was very impressed with the prework to debur the hard edges, check the sole and sharpen the blade. These small tasks were well worth the dollars spent. Now simple maintenance is all that is required. It is great that we can purchase in Canada and not worry about the border. The shipping and follow up by email was very impressive. Never have I had such great communication with any purchase.
Thank you- John Carlson, BC

From Box to Board

Great pleasure being able to go from the box to the Board after a quick wipe down. Delivery time was great.

Great little plane

picked up this little beauty. Out of the box the sole was flat, the blade was nearly flat and only required minimal effort to sharpen. I was looking at a Lie Nielsen as a gift for my 60th birthday present but when this went on sale at Woodcraft in the US I thought why not give it a try and wasn’t disappointed. Like my other Woodriver planes I think this is a great plane and unless you make a living woodworking where the shuttle difference might make a difference why would you pay more. Paper thin
