June 2014 - New WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack:
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 Mn65 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.

January 2013 - Arkansas Stones
These are the finest of the natural stones, known the world over for their unique crystalline structure. True novaculite, these stones remove less metal than manmade stones and polish while sharpening. The resulting edge is longer lasting and sharper, achieved with fewer stones and less effort.Arkansas stones must be used with a lubricant.It keeps the stone's surface from clogging, reduces the effort required to sharpen and keeps it clean.Oil or water may be used, but if you decide to go with oil as a lubricant, you must continue to use oil since water will no longer be absorbed by an oil soaked stone.Washita stones are the softest and most aggressive. Used for taking out large nicks, re-beveling and flattening. Soft Arkansas stones are slightly softer than hard Arkansas. Best general duty stone for multi-purpose sharpening. Hard Black stones are the hardest and finest stones. Used for a honed, highly polished edge. Arkansas Stone Sets includes the full range of grits – Washita, soft and hard. Hardwood storage boxes included. Stone colors may vary.
Note: Not usually kept in stock but available by special order - see Dan's Whetstones for current stock
December 2012 - WoodRiver #92 Shoulder Plane
The No. 92 combines the best of the Edward Preston and Sons’ plane designs with modern WoodRiver® features to create a “new classic” with the look and feel of a shiny antique but the body of shoulder plane equipped for serious shop work, whether cleaning up tenons, rabbets and dadoes or creating joints. The WoodRiver No. 92 is the result of two years of extensive prototyping and testing to develop a classic look for a plane that works as good as it looks. The classic shoulder plane features were retained – narrow body, slightly proud blade (to clean corners), sides square to the sole, flat bottoms and a necessary robustness—but a major new feature was added, an adjustable toe used to control the throat opening and help to minimize tear-out on end grain. The body of the No. 92 is Cr40 stress-relieved ductile steel, machined square and flat, and the blade is Mn65 tool steel hardened to 60-64 Rc which combines toughness with the ability to take a keen edge. The blade advancement mechanism is smooth and precise. Dimensions : Body–length 7" /175mm, width 3/4" / 19mm, height 2-1/2" / 62mm; Overall Plane–length 8-13/16" / 224mm, width 3/4" / 19mm, height 3-1/4" / 80mm; weight: 2 lbs., 3.4 oz. / 1kg; bedded angle, 15°; blade angle 25°.

AWFS Fair, Las Vegas, USA July 2011I
recently attended the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas - it was BIG. Being an
industry fair there was a lot of machinery as well as the small stuff.
I had the pleasure of meeting several of the Woodcraft staff from corporate headquarters as well as Jeffrey Forbes, President of Woodcraft Supply LLC. A tight group and a pleasure to do business with.
Also on the Woodcraft stand was Rob Cosman, demonstrating dovetails using Cosman Saws, WoodRiver Planes and the prototype Cosman Marking Knife.
is an excellent demonstrator, all his knowledge comes from experience
and his teaching - well thought out and makes good sense. Prior to this
show I knew how good the WoodRiver Planes are but this gave me the
opportunity to see and try other products including the Cosman Saws - it
won't be long before I have them in the shopping section of this

New - Stanley SW Chisels - 23rd March 2011
"The new 750 socket chisels are forged from high chrome-high carbon English tool steel in the famous city of Sheffield and hardened to RC58-62. FSC Certified Genuine English Hornbeam ( a member of the Carpinus genus) is used for the handles. Chisels range in length from 8-1/2" to 10-1/4". Handles are approximately 4-7/16" in length with a 3-5/16" comfortably shaped grip area and a 1-1/8" tenon which fits into the socket on the chisel. handles must be set in the socket prior to use. Like all chisels, these require some flattening of the backs and honing before use, but we found them well balanced and quite light. Sets come with a soft leather tool roll for storage which can also be hung up for easy access to tool when in use." - Woodcraft USA
Available in 4 Pc and 8 Pc Sets
New - Pfeil Bench Chisels
New Swiss made Chisels are really special. First, they’re crafted from the finest Swiss Tool Steel, expertly ground on all sides with a 25° main bevel and a 30° micro bevel on the cutting edge. For the handles, Elm was chosen for its’ beauty while an octagonal shape with a sight ovoid is used for improved control and comfort. The overall effect is the perfect union of old world craftsmanship, modern materials and the desire to create (what Woodcraft, USA think) may just be the perfect bench chisel. Set includes the following: 6mm, 10mm,12mm, 16mm, 19mm and 26mm chisels and a tool roll.
