I've used other planes, and never had so much difficulty.
Rob W.
I use his most often to fix a sticky doors but it is useful to get panels to fix together better, too.
D. Baker
The adjustment for the blade is pretty good too, and the blade came perfectly sharp.

At $15, I didn't expect much from this plane. I bought it mostly as a "beater" plane that I could get banged up. Out of the box, the plane is horrible but after about 4 hours of fine tuning, it worked great. What took the longest was flattening the sole. The millmarks on the sole were deep and the sole was slightly concave.
I flattened the sole, the front of the cap (where it meets the blade), the bed, and the back of the plane blade. Then I sharpened the blade and put a microbevel on it. I waxed the sole and was ready to go.
Now it works great. I never had a plane I had to put so much work into. Maybe I just got a bad one but I did get it to work fine in the end.
Can't complain for $15.

I saw this plane at Ace Hardware and thought, what the heck, I've always wanted a block plane. I had a $5 off coupon if I spent $15, and the plane was $17. Wasn't really expecting much from it. Got it home, tuned it up, slapped a board up on the bench and tried it out. Boy was I shocked, this little gem out planed a planer I spent three times as much on. I was amazed at the long smooth planing strokes across the full lengh of the board, with not a single chatter. I would definitly say I got my moneys worth.

Just started wood working a few months ago and wanted a simple hand plane to play with. This doesn't have lateral or mouth adjustment and is probably as simple as hand planes come. However it is of solid construction. Out of the package the sole is FAR from flat. It took about 3 hours of sanding to get it flat and remove the milling marks. I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for. But hey, $17 and a few spare hours of work is not bad by any means. I'm sure that it will last quite a long time. After honing the blade razor sharp it produces some good ribbons. I have yet to see how well the blade holds an edge but after market blades seem easy to come by.

Great little plane. For the price it's a charm. Just needed some fine tuning in the sharpening dept. and it has done a fantastic job in my shop. I even got rid of a large plane due to this little plane.

This very affordable bock pane with low angle iron makes a great investment for planing end grain. The sole and body seem cleanly manufactured. Although I will need to clean up a few metal tags in the throat area. The blade is pretty close to being ready to use out of the box. A little honing and flattening the sole it all that are really needed. Next time, though, I will get the one with the adjustable throat. But this one still works as a nice small plane.

I need to use a plane about once every 5 years or so. Finally decided to trim a sticking wood door. Naturally I can't find my plane since no one will admit to ever seeing it much less using it. So now I need a replacement. Not going to go for an expensive every-day plane, but do want one that is half-way decent and will do the job. This one fits the bill, although i will say to set it up and keep it set is no small task. Those without patience will say it is downright aggravating. If this is you, go for a higher quality nore expensive (like 2X to 3X in price) plane. Me, I will put up with a bit of aggravation for the light work I do.

If I could give this no stars I would. Shoddy product construction. Hard to keep it at a consistent angle adjustment level. Just doesn't work well. Bought this to even out the bottom of some doors, it chewed up the wood, wouldn't stay at adjustment level. Don't buy this.

Not much to saw about a very simple tool. As a home do-it-yourselfer it's been very effective for working on those doors that get tight over the year and such. Works well. Nothing fancy but not cheap quality either.
