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.

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.

This tool was the one I was looking for to finish my work with detail. Some times I don't need a big tool to acomplish my work and this tool is just the perfect size to do it right. Thank you for having it in stock.

Overall its good but handle is small and hard to grasp. Also care is needed to align the blade properly with respect to the bottom surface.

I had a front door that stuck and was hard to open so when I decided to repaint it, I thought I'd fix the door first.
This plane did the job in no time at all. It has an adjustable blade that allows you to set the depth you need and lock it into place.
It is lightweight and easy to hold. I did my job with the door on still on the hinges and used the plane vertically without an problem. It gives nice even cuts on each pass.

Tool was OK, but required a lot of physical effort. Probably should get a power planer, but these are expensive. For a small job, is OK.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bb good purchase so far
Worked well on triming down a door that was sticking. However, I was not able to buy replacement blades in the store when I made the purchase. These must be bought online and either shipped to you or you can make another trip to the store and pick up there at a later date.
