Is this consumer grade or contractor grade?
Asked by: notsocrazy
This model was my "go to" block plane on the job site for years. My original is still going strong, after many professional applications. It's not a Lie-Nielson or Veritas but is a very capable tool for the money.

6 in. Bailey Low Angle Block Plane is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The basic construction is very good. Some work is needed... The basic construction is very good. Some work is needed to set it up. It took me about an hour to file and sand (slowly and very carefully) the parts to an exact fit. I was expecting something like this from the reviews I read. This is a "Stanley" tool NOT a "Lee-Nelson" tool, you get what you pay for. An hours work saved me about $125 dollars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The stamped tab on the blade adjuster is not tall... The stamped tab on the blade adjuster is not tall enough for it to contain the blade in position. I ended up welding the tab a bit higher and filed the weld to the correct thickness. Several hours later they all work as they are supposed to now.

Bought this one for my son. I also have more expensive ones, but this one is reached for most often for general work. A little flattening and blade honing to get really tuned, but nothing unexpected.

The one I received was quite rusty as though it had been sitting on a shelf in a humid environment for a LONG time. Most of it cleaned up but have to say I would not have brought this one home from the store; I would have picked another one or not bought one at all.
