WoodRiver Side Rabbet Plane
Really great and versatile plane. Makes a difficult task super easy, as well using the tool is super easy as well.
Anyone who cuts dados or rebates, especially withhand tools, needs one of these planes.

VERY Good Plane!
I LOVE this little plane! It is very good at what it is intended for and, compared to expensive planes of the same type, it can do the job just as well. You can't beat the price considering what it would cost at Lie - Nielsen, so one cannot go wrong buying this baby.
In response to the "casual" woodworker who wrote in and did not like this plane because there was no instruction, I must gently suggest to him that, with more experience, he will know how to use the plane. This is a specialized plane which means that anyone buying it will already know from practical experience on how to use it. Good luck to him and if he stays with woodworking he will know what I mean.
Groovy with caution
I use it to clean up the sides of grooves and widen it if its just a tad too narrow. Works really nicely after a long session flattening the back of the blade and sharpening the bevel.
Blade came roughly machined. Blade is also difficult to adjust the depth of cut. Best way I've found is to set it too deep, set the hold down so the blade will move with some effort, and then tap the back so it pulls the blade back. Somewhat like backing out the blade on a Japanese plane. Also the screw holding the nose on the plane came sheared off. The guys at WC used a thin needle nose pliers to get it off. m4 x 20 screw worked perfectly.
So quality control is not as good on this plane as the V3 bench planes and the blade is difficult to adjust. But once sharpened and adjusted it works great. Made a table with miter slots for my drill press. This tool trimmed the slots so my miters slide with no play. Not sure if I could get it that accurate with any other tool. So I love what it does but I recommend this plane if you are skilled at sharpening and setting up planes.

Woodriver Side Rabbet plane
Nice plane at a reasonable price. Obviously if you were to pay the premium prices demanded by other manufacturers you would get better quality but I doubt it would be 4 times better as the others are 4 times dearer. I am satified with this plane and I may consider more Woodriver products in the future.
