Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made ready to use out of the box. The only other plane that I have used that was ready out of the box was a Lie Nelson box plane. Normally I have to level the soul of the plane with sandpaper over a piece of glass, for more than an hour. Then sharpen the blade. This one was ready to go out of the box. I would normally prefer to get the Nelson but I will not use it as much as my box plane so I thought I would settle for this one. So far I do not feel that I settled. November 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A well made tool This plane is as the name states "a sweetheart". I took it out of the box, removed the protective film on it and got to work on a dresser I'm making for my grandson. Excellent tool! It has good weight, easy to adjust, and with the extra thick A2 blade it cut with little effort, leaving a very smooth surface with no sanding needed. And no chatter either. Some of the shavings I was able to get were so thin, I could see my finger in back of them. I am so impressed with this plane I ordered the Stanley low angle block plane to compliment this one. And the price was excellent also. January 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Quality and well made Plane The plane is very well made, oozes high quality. After unpacking, cleaning the shipping oil from the bare metal services with alcohol and checking all screws were tight it was ready to use in 5 mins. Have since sharpened the blade once on a diamond stone and an able to take 001" shavings with ease. June 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great plane for the price. This plane was not machined to the tolerances of higher end planes, however, it doesnt cost what they do either. At the price point HD is selling this for, it is an excellent value. The biggest overall complaint is the lever cap (cap iron) is thin aluminum. If it was iron or bronze this would be 5 stars easy. My particular plane after unpacking and examining it seemed immaculate, however running it over a smooth board proved otherwise. It left horrible scratches in several spots showing it had metal burrs from machining. After about an hour with a file, all were fixed. Just beware you may have to do some tuning to get the plane to the expectations youre looking for. Highly recommended if you dont want to pay for a Lie-Nielsen/Clifton or Veritas plane.
