Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ECGfromICT The only thing this item removed in layers was my patience
First let me acknowledge that i have never used a planer before which could account for my inability to get this thing to work properly. However the instructions were of so little help that after a few hours i gave up on the project and ended up calling a handyman.

Tried to sand some very old oak wood furniture door edges to prevent sticking without success. This planer is lightweight enough and small enough for the job and worked well.

I am using this block plane to finish window boxes for trim, to custom fit the boxes to the uneven walls in our 30+ year old home. It is so much easier to adjust the blade depth with the knob on the back, versus the standard plane at about half the price - well worth the extra cost. I just wish there was a way to lock the knob in place once it is adjusted, because it is just below the rear handle and my palm loosens it after a while.

This thing wasn't gliding at all. Maybe it knew I am a woman, lol.

I was away from home and needed a decent plane to fix a bathroom door where I was staying for the long weekend. This plane did a nice job and I will gladly add it to my collection of tools.

Product has a locking part for the blade. Mine broke on the first use.
Got replace and no issues with it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MegH Low price, but consider what you're getting
The adjustments don't stay where I set them for very long. The blade shifts/rotates, so you have to be very careful to line it up straight and carefully screw down the clamp while holding the blade steady. The clamp has no system for letting you know how deep the cut will be--you just have to use trial and error. Definitely not good if you need any kind of accuracy in what you're planing. We just needed to plane down part of the top of a door so it would close, and this plane was almost more trouble and more poor results than it was worth.
