There have been several reviews here on LJ’s concerning the WR #4. I have responded a couple times that I felt the tote was cramp. So, I started looking at the tote to figure out why.
I thought I’d post for those considering these planes. I think they are a good value but with some draw backs. I really like mine but I have to hold it with the index and small finger extended.
Here is pic of the WR #4
I placed a type 12 SB #3 on top of the #4 so the horns and curve for the 1st web space are equal.
While in the same position, this is a look straight down at the base of the totes. The WR #4 base is significantly taller.
This is another look just trying to minimize parallax error.
Sitting side by side you can see have prominent the WR #4 tote’s base is.
Now, I shimmed the #3 up so that the horn and web space curve are about the same.
And this is comparing a #4 to a #3. I don’t have a vintage #4 to compare. There is just no room for your little finger.
