Nice, sturdy plane. Plastic handles are rather uncomfortable and gives me blisters after extended use (especially bad at the seems of the plastic). I was planning on replacing the handles with home made wooden ones when I purchased this plane, so it's not a huge deal for me.

where's the quality assurance?
I suppose you can't expect much for 1 Grant. I couldn't understand why the frog was crooked with no real adjustment until I took it apart. not sure what guide they used to for the punch but it is visibly off center which. this is creating the twist in how the frog seats. at first i was tempted to notch the bracket and make it work but stopped myself so I can return it. not happy :(

    Out of the box, this plane is rough. The factory grind on the sole and sides is rough and not very flat. It took several hours to flatten the sole and sides. I don’t mind the plastic handles. The handles are made of a dense sturdy plastic. The seam lines on the handles are sharp. After the seam lines are scraped and sanded down, the handles feel really good. The plane I received had a manufacturing defect with the frog. The frog was not properly machined where the frog contacts the lateral adjustment lever. This contact surface on the frog should have been machined deeper. As a result, the lateral adjustment lever sits too proud and makes contact with the chip breaker (a.k.a. cap iron). I’m sending the plane back under warranty because of the frog. I can’t comment as to the quality of the stock blade (a.k.a. cutter). If you factor the purchase price, the time required to tune/true the plane, and choose to replace the blade & chip breaker with a quality aftermarket replacement, you might be better of paying a few dollars more and simply buy a WoodRiver #5 bench plane. It simply comes down to how much your time is worth to you. Overall, I would probably not recommend this plane to others.

      Better than expected, just bought it to see how good it was. It needed the sole flattened a fair amount and all of the mating surfaces for the frog must be filed down really rough. So far the blade seems to be of a good quality easy to hone and seems to cut well. The handles need to be scraped and or sanded down. But for not much more than the price of a blade its a decent plane, I plan on using it for roughing down the surface. It's a shame they can't put just a small amount of work on milling the frog surfaces and some decent handles they would have a decent plane they could charge 50 bucks more for.

      The plastic handles are hideous, but it's otherwise a wonderful tool. It even planed against the grain without tearout.

      It took a lot of work to get the blade conditioned so it could be used, The back needed flattening and the bevel needed re-working. Once that was done, the plane works great. Don't expect it to be great right out the box

      I have never owned or used a hand plane before, so bear that in mind, but I'm able to get some decent shavings with this plane. The mouth gets clogged up a bit, but it could be user error. When I first used it, I was getting some tearout. I would attribute that to user error as well. I'm still working on a workbench to properly hold the pieces I'm working on and that will undoubtedly help as well. I would say, for a brand new beginner, the price is right. I was able to hone the blade. I played around with flattening the sole, but it seemed like the sandpaper was cleaning off pretty evenly across the sole.
