Does a reasonable job
06-Aug-2013
By
, Nottingham
"Bought this for general work and for the money it does a fair job.
Like any new plane it needed a quick run across the oil stone and it was good to go.
If you want perfection you need to spend at least another £50.00 but this plane does a fair job for the price.

"an excellent tool worth trice the price if it had a good handle. it is only of use if you have a tiny hand. ignore the handle grip and you will be ok. or make a new handle if you have the skills"

Needs a sharpen but not bad...

"Cheap plastic handles, and out of the pack it's about as sharp as my mums old carving knife. That said seems well put together, the sole is perfectly flat, and adjustment works well. Not bad at all for the price."

"Hello there i have recentlt purchased this plane and find it difficult too set up as it didnt come with instructions

Im finding i have too sit the blade forward too get it too take wood off but it blocks straight away
As it didnt come with instructions im baffled too how it should be set up
Any help would be great
Thanks"
