"Good quality plane, good value and robust tool. Cannot say much about reliability as not been in use for long enough but early signs are good."

Does a reasonable job
6 Aug 2013
By Rayzor
, 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.

just the handle ok

"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."
