Let me first say that I'm most definately a Lie-Nielsen or Veratis plane fan. I got this one for Christmas a few years ago and upon first trying it, performed about like I expected which was mediocure. Since it was a gift, I opted to spend a little time with it. I was pleased to discover the sole was fairly flat, and the frog was pretty well machined so that saved time. I flattened the back of the blade, ground it, honed it, put a sharpening bevel on it, touched up the frog and chipbreaker, and set it to close the mouth a bit more.

This is now a favorite. With the stock blade, it's still technically not quite the performer of a like Lie-Nielsen or Veritas, I would challenge anyone to really see a difference without a micrometer. It cuts full width shavings resembling strips of cotton. It fits the hand very well and I can get .002 shavings from it without problems but it can get .001 with slight adjustment. I think that a sharp blade and good fitting chipbreaker are a huge part of the equasion. It's equivilent in size to a Stanley #5 so it serves me well as a jack plane but even though a tad long, could serve as an excellent smoother. It must be a Wednesday plane because I can't explain any other reason this very inexpensive plane works so well.

Edit as of 12/7/09: I replaced the stock blade and chipbreaker with a Hock and there has been a great improvement even from an already decent performer. I have a Lie-Nielsen bench plane and a Veritas low angle smoother and both are great planes and are the standards by which others are judged, but this plane with it's modifications does absoultey as well in my opinion. Granted, it took a little work to get it to that point, but I don't feel it a comprimise and actually reach for it before the others most of the time. I also think my wife takes pride that I'm so happy with her gift.

I bought this plane for $32 because of a raving review by another buyer. Obviously I can talk about quality of every Grizzly plane, but here's what I got:

It's not the exact thing you see in the picture--the claim is not a snap clamp but a screw clamp. This I actually like.

The sole is not flat; I haven't run an indicator over it, but it's a few thou out of flat (maybe .003"). And it has a few high spots--they seem to be right under where frog's feet sit on the sole. I flattened it somewhat before testing but will flatten it more.

Cap iron (or chip breaker) is really a crap iron. It had a filed tip, so that had to be brought down to a flat surface with a sharp edge between the bottom of the radius and the flat that lies on the blade. It is also crooked, so the front edge is not perpendicular to the sides. Anyway, I fixed it at home the best I could (without wasting a ton of time) but will probably regrind it to make it perfect.

The blade isn't horrible but isn't good. Unlike blade that are ground on a blanchard grinder, this one was ground on a regular surface grinder, so it has a nicer finish, but because whoever ground it wasn't very good, it's bent. The steel isn't very thick, so when you clamp it the cap iron and the clamp largely straighten it out against the frog. Anyway, I got a new blade (new Stanley for $11)--the original blade is to bent out of shape to be reground (it's at least 0.02" out) and it's hard to use tools to sharpen such bent blade (you can by hand but that's always a hassle).

Overall, it's not a bad plane for $32 + $11 replacement blade = $43. But don't expect a Cadillac for the price of a Yugo. Most likely you'll have to spend some time messing around with it until it's to your specs; and don't expect it to be like Lie-Nielsen--I worked as a machinist for a long time, and maybe you can get lucky but based on what I saw with my plane, it's a bit of a project plane.

Let's just get this out of the way up front, this is not a Veritas or a Lie-Nielsen, or a Bedrock. Its also no where nearly as expensive as any of those planes. If you are just getting into hand planes this is a great one to start with. It requires no more tuning than any of the other planes I've owned and requires a lot less work than some of the used planes that you'll find. It will need the iron honed and the handles tightened but the sole is flat the totes are solid and well finished and for the price this is a great product and will take very nice shavings. I have enjoyed this plane tremendously and while I have other "nicer" brands I have never felt the need to replace this no. 5 and it is still my everyday user.

Works really well. Bought it to flatten my workbench top. I've sharpened up the blade several times and it holds the edge longer now, (I believe this is true of all handplane irons). I've made a big pile of shavings and I am completely satisfied with this purchase. I bought mine used, but the only way you would know is that the box had been opened and taped shut. Excellent deal
