Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cody Great little planer
I needed a hand planer for a house project building a faux beam and speaker holder for a "tv build in"(see picture). I couldn't find the very old hand me down planer given to me from my old man so I picked up this little guy to plane the biscuit jointed 4x4s and one 4x6 for the project as well as manually distress the wood. Obviously it takes some elbow grease but it did the trick. Leveled well with little time enough to sand it down for a nice level surface. Price was great too.

This is the worst planer I have ever used or seen. The adjustments are impossible. After spending 30 min or more trying to adjust it so it doesn't just take huge chunks of wood out I got it to take things shavings on just one half of the blade. Get a planner that has adjusters. Even for rough work this is worthless. Would have been easier to drag a knife blade across the wood. Returning it today.

Took me a few to get used to, as I haven't used one before. After watching a Youtube video, it went way smoother.

This was purchased for scraping the door. It left a smooth finish.

I am by no means an expert on hand planing, as this was my first foray. It took very little adjustment, and I was creating ribbons. Very sharp, well balanced.

It is fully capable of doing the job but it is extremely difficult to get the blade adjusted properly. I guess it's a good value for the money if you're willing to spend the time to tinker with the blade adjustment on a scrap piece of wood before putting it to your work piece.
The back of the blade on mine was not perfectly flat, nor was the bevel a perfect 25 degrees. I spent a considerable amount of time sharpening/flattening the blade and was able to get a sharp enough blade for general use. I noticed during sharpening that the beveled edge I was sharpening was flexing during the process, an indication to me that the blade is thin and not made from very hard steel. I will assume it will dull quickly during use.
Conclusion: Fair value for the money but I will probably return it and spend a bit more for one that is easier to adjust and maybe has a better quality blade.
