Really good little plane for taking small amounts off the bottom my lounge doors after fitting a new carpet.
Not good value

You can buy the exact same one at engineering agencies for just over £8 & on top of that, it isn't very efficient.
A bit of a mistake

On the plus sides this planer has a very straight "grating" edge, is reasonably solid for being made out of plastic and does leave a good smooth finish.
I can only image this tool has a very specific function in which it performs well, but I don't know what that function is. I've tried this on a number of materials including hard and soft woods, along and against the grain. It does take off wood, but incredibly slowly (to plane a 3mm thick piece of pine down by a millimeter expect to be at it for at least 10 minutes). Sandpaper is a much quicker way to go.
It does however do an excellent job of taking off dried gorilla glue... but that's the only use I've found for it.
