Wood River V# #62 jack plane
West Central Florida
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.
