In spite of the expert warnings about lower priced planes, I purchased this one from Grizzly. I have had success with several off brand older planes I bought at a flea market.

This plane arrived in good condition. I checked the sole for flatness and square and found it to be ready to use. All planes can use a tune-up, but I took this out of the box, cleaned up the packing grease, and adjusted the blade for a thin cut. I just ran it over some hard pine to joint an edge, and was able to easily shave off 0.005" thick scrolls of wood. This before any sharpening or "tuning". I'd say this is a very good plane for the money. The only noticable item is the enameled paint in lieu of Japaning.

Yes, it is a corrugated sole, to reduce friction. And yes, it is very flat, as advertised! Flat and corrugated do go together!

I have yet to see what will happen with some squirrely grain, but so far so good.

Update: I have taken a little time to tune this up. With things clean and sharpened to 25 degrees, I have had decent performance planing the edge of some hard maple, with one squirrley edge. The plane does pretty well. I made shavings from 0.002" to 0.006" along the length of the board, but I would recommend considering a better blade if you use this much, such as a Hock. All the parts seem to be machined pretty well and cleaned up easily, but the blade is a bit concave and took some work to flatten.

All in all, still a good buy.

Good bye!

This plane is clearly not the same caliber of tool as a Lie-Nielsen plane but at the same time it is less than a third of the cost of the same No. 7.

Out of the box it worked like crap but after fiddling with it for about 10 minutes I was able to get long, smooth curls out of my stock. It did the job well enough for me.

I only need to use a hand plane occasionally so this is definitely worth it for me. If you are constantly using a hand plane you should buy a lifetime tool.

Don't waste your money - plane bottom was way out of flat - they refused to give me full credit on it and charged restocking fee - save up for a good Lie-Nielsen or get an old Stanley or Bailey -I have a #7 I paid 65 for that is 100 years old that works circles around this Indian steel.
