Low Angle Jack Plane
WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack Plane
What a great tool! I'm no hand tool expert but I know that this plane has kept up with every demand I have made. It's dead on flat and dead 90 degree on the sides, feels nice and heavy in the hand, comfortable handle and tote. The guys at Woodcraft were very helpful and suggested I get the 40 degree blade as well and I'm glad I took their advice, it's like having two different planes. Great on the shooting board, flattened a walnut slab top, flattened and surfaced end grain cutting boards, smoothed an entertainment center instead of sanding, etc. The only con would be the back took some lapping to get perfectly flat but it holds an edge well. If I am to need more planes I will search no further than these. Great product.

A wonderful addition
I'm a long time power tool woodworker but find myself not so rushed anymore so I started getting into the handtools. This is the first wood river plane I have used and I must say it doesn't let you down. I didn't try it before sharpening, I honed the blade to 8000 on my water stones then stropped it? The walnut I used it on was rough and wavy. After a couple minutes and very little struggle the board was dead flat. I am extremely impressed with this plane and recommend anyone who is looking to get started in hand tools as well as the avid traditionalist to go and get it! You will not be let down!

Wood River V# #62 jack plane
West Central Florida
I've wanted a bevel up jack plane for a while. When Wood River brought out their #62, I agonized over paying extra for the lee valley.
I have a V3, #4, #5, and a low angle block plane that I'm very happy with.
I had a discount coupon so I bought the wood river #62.
Out of the box, it was a beauty. The sole was flat, and the sides were dead on square. I bought an extra 25 degree blade, and the 40 degree blade. I polished, and sharpened the blades. I sharpened the 40, and one of the 25's with a little "camber". Left the other 25 straight, for edge grain trimming. I put a micro bevel on all the blades, I used a VERITAS MK II honing guide for sharpening.
I was a little disappointed, when I tested it on the face of the board. I discovered a gouge in the wood
The front of the adjustment for the blade clearance evidently was burred. A little judicial stoning cured that.
The plane produces gossamer shavings. It made a scrap piece of maple glass smooth, even around a knot.
So far I'm pleased with the plane.
I'd like to see a tooth blade for it.
