Good idea - Poor execution

FrustratedChippie - 3 years ago

This would be a great product (Review is for a Record No5 Jack Plane) but is let down by poor finishing (e.g. moulding marks on plastic handles making them uncomfortable) and even poorer materials. After grinding, sharpening and polishing the blade bevel (it is practically blunt out of the box) I tried to use it only to have the yoke adjuster snap where it butts against the chip breaker. What is even more frustrating (apart from having 9/10 of a working plane) is that I lost the receipt soon after purchase so cannot return it. On a plus note, the plane is not too heavy, has a relatively good range of adjustment and the blade takes a fine edge once you have fettled it. I have rated this as poor for the yoke failure (not good enough with modern materials and manufacturing when I have a 40 yo Stanley No4 plane still going strong) but would otherwise rate as "good" for the price.
