Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nick Workable, affordable plane
Out of the box, the blade and setup are pretty much garbage. After some honing and tweaking, it is pretty servicable, but is clearly not a high quality plane. Especially annoying is the poorly threaded adjustment knob. But if you fight with it enough, you can get decent results.

I purchased this to carve kayak paddles and am glad I purchased it. It is very adjustable, which is very nice to get the plain dialed in for easy cutting. It is a good size to remove a solid amount of wood in a quick amount of time. I've also used it for doors with good results.

I've seen this plane trashed on some websites, but I think that's totally unwarranted. This isn't a $200 English plane, but it works great and has helped me with several projects. I can get razor thin hardwood shavings that you can almost see through.
If you are new to using a hand plane, then check out the internet for the scary sharp sharpening system that uses plain sandpaper to get your plane iron razor sharp. It will make this plane a solid performer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIY1 Quality is Obvious!
3rd generation master carpenter / cabinet maker. We all used and still use the Buck branded items. Trust a pro and disregard the DIY and the folks with nothing better to do then complain where it isn't warranted. I own many many of these items and mastered the art of sharpening. When used and done right this tool and thte rest of them will last a very long time..
