Product Information:

Originally advertised as a plane for heavy stock removal across the grain, the No. 62 has found a home as a smoother and is quite popular among collectors. The WoodRiver® No. 62 is faithful to the original design, but is almost a full pound heavier at approximately 4.6 lbs. It features a body cast from ductile iron, with a bed angle of 12°, a bubinga tote and front knob, and a high-carbon steel blade with a 25° bevel. The plane measures a little less than 14" in length x 2.4" in width and has a 2"-wide blade.


  • Heavy ductile iron casting

  • Mn65 high-carbon steel blade

  • Flat Sole and square sides

  • Bubinga tote and front knob

    Comments about WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack Plane :

    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!

    Comments about WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack Plane :

    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.
