"Used the Irwin Block Plane to finish the doors for built-in wardrobes. It was easy to trim the side of the wardrobe door whilst hung, reducing the time spent checking the doors closed without catching. I wish I'd bought this tool years ago.
I only started using the tool yesterday but I feel confident that this tool will last a long time, and be well used."
"This little plane is superb, very well made and well finished. I will admit that it is a little on the expensive side, but as I bought this one to replace a cheaper brand which was absolutly dire, it is well worth it! The blade came quite well sharpened, but I did hone it to a razor edge before use. I would recommend the plane to anyone as I have found it extremely reliable and it works very well."
"Brilliant 061/2 block plane for the money the sole is flat and square to the sides and the blade is sharp and true but the blade needs fettling before use for the best results also the mouth and blade clamp needs to be good and tight.
I have another 061/2 block plane that costs over £150 believe me you cannot tell the difference in quality of wood finish."
"Low quality tool not flat, not square. blade wasn't anywhere near square when i came to sharpen had to regrind to square, its very hard to alter angle of blade to get it running true with the mouth of the base, i would stick with the stanley one like i used to use. or a older plane."
"This plane is not worth the money. I took it back within 5 monutes of opening it. The casting is poor and the mechanism for setting the blade would not function. I would avoid this plane and spend a bit more to get a better quality plane."
"Sadly the name does not reflect the quality of construction. Whilst it is well made, it is not put together very well. The blade clamp works loose and planing action tends to knock the blade to one side, thus cutting on the angle. The height adjustment has too much free play and is too coarse. As always it pays to file and smooth all the sharp casting edges off the bottom and sides. The blade keeps it's edge and is easy to hone but it's the mechanics of the thing that let it down, it could be a real nice tool."
