Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KD7955 Did it's job.
I needed to trim down 2 doors and knew that even a coarse sandpaper on my power sander wouldn't make a dent. Not having owned a classic wood plane I considered buying one ($25), but opted for this rasp style, mostly because it had a longer planing surface...and was $10 cheaper. It took about 10 strokes down the surface of the door edge to understand how the tool actually cut the wood, but it did a really good job. Make sure you have a shop vac nearby as the wood shavings pile up pretty quickly.

Ordered online. Knew exactly what I needed. Quick in and out and the product is just what I needed for shaping surfboards.

Used this to plane a chip board floor and it worked like a dream. Very durable and easy to use.

Great planer! Exactly what I was looking for. Was even able to use while door was on hinge with no problem!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by John Good while it lasted
This really is a fantastic tool for woodworking - while it stays intact. It broke in a single day! The blade material is made of high carbon steel, but the temper is horribly done on it. The blade cracked on me during use, where it attached to the handle. They sell replacement blades, but I opted to return it instead. With the new rasp I further tempered it at 300 deg for an hour. Holding up for a few days now.
It needs work. The attachment mechanism isn't anything to brag about.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kennyt00 Poor quality
Bought one of these and within one minute of use the handle setscrew loosened and the handle flopped around. Could not tighten the setscrew so the handle (and therefore the Surform planer) was essentially unusable. Went back to the store and exchanged the product thinking that I had gotten the only bad one on the shelf. Well, got home with the new one and the same problem occurred. The setscrew is cheap and will not stay tightened so the handle will not stay on!

This plane is so light and easy to use and the blade was sharp with excellent trimming capacity
