Product Information:

A versatile tool, the No. 4 hand plane 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 hand plane is light enough to use for longer periods, but has plenty of heft to slice through difficult grain without stopping.

Fine Woodworking Best Value Award Winner V3: Like our previous WoodRiver® Bench Hand Planes, our version 3 is 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.
