Based in China, Qiangsheng Luban are experts in their field of hand plane manufacture. Using a combination of traditional and modern manufacturing processes along with tried and trusted designs, they produce planes that offer exceptional quality. Since their arrival in 2005 they have established themselves as the serious alternative to the premium plane brands from North America. Their attention to detail in the finishing process is in our opinion second to none and the weight and balance ratio is of the highest level. Qiangsheng Luban planes are an exceptionally popular choice with discerning woodworkers and cabinetmakers throughout the world.

This new Qiangsheng No 92 Shoulder plane is based on the original Edward Preston and Sons' plane design and is the result of years of extensive testing and developing which has created a classic look that functions as good as it looks. You will find no better plane for trimming the shoulder of a tenon to perfection or for precise rebating work.

The key features of the Edwards and Preston design were retained, including a narrow body, a slightly proud blade designed to clean out corners, side faces square to the sole and a precise flat bottom. A new adjustable toe design enhances the original and is used to control the throat opening in order to minimise tear out on end grain.

Manufactured from stress relieved ductile steel, the body is machined square and flat, and the blade is made from A2 tool steel which has been hardened to HRC60. This gives the blade strength and the ability to take a keen edge. The 15° low bed angle combined with the 25° blade bevel gives a cutting angle of 40° for exceptional end grain cutting performance.

The No 92 has a sole length of 210mm, overall length of 260mm, a width of 20mm, a body height of 75mm and a weight of 1.3kg. This is an exceptional plane.

    As the owner of a number of Clifton planes I was somewhat sceptical about this No 92 Shoulder Plane. Having been assured by Rutlands that I could return the plane if not satisfied I placed my order. On receipt the next day I took out my Starrett square and a set of feeler gauges and proudly set out to prove how inaccurate it would be in comparison to my British made plane of 20 years. To my delight/annoyance the sole to the sides on the new plane were within 1/10 of a thou to my Clifton and to make matters worse the sole was more accurate along the length. The blade in my opinion required further honing but that said I am quite fastidious. If this is te new standard to come out of China I seriously fear for the European and American plane manufacturers. It is quite exceptional.
