Allan Urbach

I have ordered this plane following the reviews and was very pleased with it straight out of the box. I ordered an ANANT plane on that website for £50 which is crap so needed something working properly. I decided to spend money and I am very happy I did. As a beginner, it is not easy to know what is a good buy or easy to transform a bad plane into a good one (Anant). This Chinese plane is good for a honest price.

Alex Anderson

The quality of this plane is outstanding for the price. I bought it for my apprentice thinking it would be a good plane for him to practice tuning up and using. The only thing that needed doing out of the box was a quick hone of the blade. The sole was flat and the wings were square. I was so impressed, I've since bought myself one and one of the block planes too.

When I opened the box I had a pleasant surprise. The plane looks MUCH better than in the pictures of this site! Handles are made of bubinga with a very nice satin finish, not too 'heavy'. The blade and chipbreaker are amazingly thick, the overall finish is good, maybe not Veritas-like, but sure nicer than in the pictures. The sole needed a little flattening to be perfect while the blade was flat, a bit rough, but it is within the process of sharpening in any case. I honed it at 30 plus a microbevel (optimal for A2 blades like this is), it produces an incredibly smooth surface. The frog sits well on the body and the blade on the frog... excellent machining and the Bedrock is a joy over the normal construction since it allows setting the blade when still mounted and gives a better support for the blade. An excellent piece of tool at a bargaign price, highly recommended.
