Dan Collister

Great plane as others have reviewed. I found the
blade tightening wheel awkward to use. I have ground a gentle arch off the underside of the rounded bronze cap above the wheel on both sides and that makes a massive difference to how easy it is to adjust. Taking the sharp corner off where the blade gets narrower makes it more comfortable to use too.

Joe Jefferies

I love this plane - I already have the standard angle version but this has added versatility being able to cut flush with the sides.

Harry Stebbing

I bought plane this with a degree of trepidation, because of the price. I needn't have worried as the 5* reviews say it all. I already own a couple of Lie Nielsen planes, so comparing the two makes was easy. The quality and finish of the casting is faultless. The blade did need two minutes to true the back but it holds it's edge as well as any good quality blade and indeed is thicker than a 'Hock' which I bought for another low angle block plane some years ago. Most of my work is in English Oak. Blade adjustment is excellent with only a 1/4 turn of backlash. I could go on but this plane in my opinion is equal to makes two and three times the price. It's not long to Christmas !

I bought this plane some time ago and I am using it all the time on Site. It is very versatile and due to its size ideal for Site jobs. ideal as "Apron plane". Well made and a proper blade which can be sharpened and honed to an razor finish. Easy and accurate set up. i am very pleased with it. Good buy.

Julian Coe

This is my second Qiangsheng plane which both represent excellent value for money. As with all my planes I spent about an hour flattening the sole ( very close to flat anyway ) and finely honing the blade. The result was whisper thin shavings. Very pleased.

Erland Holmström

Flatten the sole, hone and polish the blade and then it takes super thin shavings. Good value for the money.

Mark Guilford

Just received this low angle rebate plane took it right out of the box and used it on a cabinet I am building.

I was somewhat skeptical of a chinese manufactured product but it is reassuringly solid and cuts the finest shavings of any of my currrent planes.

Highly recommended.

Clif Aincham

Was very impressed and would have paid full price for it, had it not been on special offer. Works wonderful and rebates cleanly and feels an easy fit in the hand.

Daniel Lewis

Excelent, I'm very pleased with this. Very well made and a nice thick iron which sharpens well and holds a nice edge. I will definitely be buying more of this brand. Highly recommended.

Dennis Howitt

As a tool junkie, I have more than my fair share of Lie Nielsen stuff. Some of which is so pretty that I haven't used it. I was intrigued by what I had read about Qiangsheng planes so bought this when Rutlands had one of their unbelievable offers. The plane looks and generally feels good - worked fine out of the box - but honing took seconds and the plane was even better. The edges feel a little harsh in my hand but, apart from that, not a grumble.

Richard Williams

So good I immediately bought a block plane also ! Proper engineering and there is nothing else in the price range that touches these for quality the new S*** SW range are doorstops in comparison. Lie Nielsen should be worried..very worried.
