A flatter sole, please.Posted December 26, 2013

It has a wobbly front knob which cannot be tightened because the bolt bottoms out before contacting the knob. The handle likewise is not securely mounted and rotates slightly side to side.
This is the model of plane described elsewhere as a "plane kit". With an hour or two of work they can be made to be serviceable planes.
The higher grade planes from Stanley are the Sweet-Heart series. I was rather hoping the "Made in England" meant this was some grade in between contractor and the Sweet-Heart. It is not so.
