Product Details

TWIN PACK OFFER... containing the Qiangsheng Luban Low Angle Block Hand Plane and the Qiangsheng Luban Standard Angle Block Hand Plane....

Qiangsheng Luban Low Angle Block Hand Plane - DK1336...
A good low angle block plane is invaluable when working with end grain and this one is a good investment for any woodworker. The mouth is easily adjustable for the depth of cut required from deep aggressive cuts to fine translucent shavings. Produced from a single steel casting, the body of the plane is precision ground for a flat sole and square wings. During this process, the body is fully stress relieved to prevent the plane deforming with time and use. The high carbon steel blade is 3mm thick and fits perfectly against the machined body. This support virtually eliminates any risk of chatter. The blade is held in position by a large bronze cap iron with an integrated palm rest which allows the plane to nestle snugly in the hand.

With a bevel angle of 25°, the blade is bedded at an angle of 12° giving an overall cutting angle of 37°; perfect for trimming end grain without tearing. Dimples on the wings of the plane offer a firm grip to thumb and finger giving the plane a very positive feel in use. Blade adjustments are made using the knurled steel thumb screw and gives precise control over the setting of the blade. This is an exceptional low angle block plane that makes light work of both light finishing and smoothing and end grain tasks.

Qiangsheng Luban Standard Angle Block Hand Plane - DK1178...
Designed for making trimming and fine adjustment cuts, the block plane is an invaluable tool in the workshop. Made from premium quality cast steel, this block plane is fully stress relieved and precision ground to exacting tolerances to be square and flat. This block plane has a modified body casting to make it more responsive in use and a finer pitch blade adjustment thread for improved blade setting accuracy.

Featuring a knurled brass knob, the front shoe is fully adjustable allowing the mouth to be opened or closed for heavy or fine cutting. The oversize bronze cap iron features an integrated rest which lets the plane sit comfortably in the palm of the hand and feels very positive in use. This cap iron gives full support to the 3mm thick blade for a clean chatter free cut. The 25° bevelled blade is seated at 20° within the plane. Made from high carbon steel, the 35mm wide blade is tempered and hardened to Rc 60-64 allowing it to be honed and to maintain a razor sharp edge.

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.

John Jacques

A lovely block plane. A bargain, Very pleased with mine, very good quality,excellent all round. Great blade,lovely finish to the whole thing, square and flat and smooth. Very nice to use. Would recommend.

James Lennox

5/5 an excellent choice for the enthusiast and joiner

V Coggin

I have to agree with all the others here in praise of this little gem. The finish of it is superb but I was most impressed by its weight at over 800 grams. Its narrower than my old record but much more comfortable in the hand. This gives it a great feel and an inertia that makes it a pleasure to use. The Chinese can make good tools!

Cliff Conway

I PURCHASED THIS PLANE PART ON REVIEWS AND PART ON GUT FEELING AS I HAVE A STANLEY SWEETHEART BUT DO NOT LIKE IT .THIS BLOCK PLANE IS NICE TO HOLD IN THE HAND, HEAVY TO USE , THIS I LIKE GOOD VALUE WOLD RECOMMEND

Geoff Bembridge

I have just bought one of these fantastic little block planes. Quite contrary to my usual choice, I don't as a rule by chinese stuff, however, this plane has already proven itself to be worthy of sitting amongst my stanleys a records.Infact I would go so far as to say it is better. Not only does it look good it works perfectly too. There was no need to mess about flattening the sole etc, just a quick hone to add the secondary bevel and it works very efficiently. T he machining is to a very high quality and it shows sraight from the box.

O. Parry-Jones

These 'Quangsheng' planes are unlike so many of cheap imports coming in from the Far East today. They are direct 'clones' of the Lie-Nielsen models but, they're also comparable to the high-range in terms of performance. Very well made, they feel solid and the plane iron takes a good, sharp edge - and holds it well! Without owning a L-N block plane, I cannot honestly see what those do that the Quangsheng planes don't...! These even come in a nice wooden box (if you like those sorts of things!).
