WoodRiver #4 Bench Plane, V3

$209.98

Introducing the New and Improved Version 3 WoodRiver Bench Planes! Our new Version 3 bench planes are still based on the reliable Bedrock design and feature heavy, stress -relieved ductile iron castings, fully machined adjustable frogs and high carbon steel blades but we took the opportunity between manufacturing runs to do a critical review and make a few improvements. We’ve changed the shape of the rear tote and increased the diameter of the blade adjustment wheel to make advancing the blade a bit easier. We improved the lateral adjustment lever and added a traditional style bearing for better control of the blade. We’ve made numerous changes to the castings that result in better “feedback” and a solid feel to the user. Working closely with our own manufacturer, we’ve 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. Tools require minimal tune-up prior to use.A versatile tool, the No. 4 is ideal for smoothing and other light jobs where you don’t need the length or heft of a larger plane. Weighing in at 5 lbs., this plane is light enough to use for longer periods, but has plenty of heft to slice through difficult grain without stopping. About Us: Founded in Boston in 1928, Woodcraft’s operations were moved to Parkersburg, West Virginia in 1989. It’s been over 90 years since Woodcraft first began selling high quality woodworking tools and supplies out of a one room shop in Boston’s North End, and Woodcraft is still firmly committed to providing woodworkers with superior products and expert advice. We are America’s leading supplier of saws, planes, power tools, hand tools, wood stain and paint, routers, sanding, wood, kits, dust collection and more.
