It arrived looking unused, and close inspection revealed why. In its current condition, it was unusable The body had not been properly routed out, and the plane iron couldn't be fully retracted. The blade was nicely sharpened, though it could have used a bit of polishing. It protruded a good eighth of an inch, when it should have been adjusted to protrude a few hundredths at most. (see photos) I could have just returned it, but decided instead to do a bit of work on it. Using my old Nicholson #50 cabinetmaker's rasp I opened up the plane just enough to allow the iron to retract.
Reinserting the blade and adjusting it with a warrington hammer, I was able to take paper thin shavings. There was still a problem with the plane- the base wasn't parallel to the sides. That's easy enough to take care of with some sandpaper and a reference surface, so that's my next project.
Should you buy one? If you need a shoulder plane on a budget, and you're willing to do a little work, sure. But don't buy it from Grizzly. If you look at a certain popular auction web site, you'll find scores of these selling for under twenty bucks.
The bottom came flat and true and the iron was in reasonably good shape. After about 5 minutes of flattening, sharpening and honing, the iron was ready to use. It appears to hold it's edge just fine.
This plane is a no frills, plain as can be shoulder plane, but it does a good job at what it's supposed to.
