I purchased this plane to work...

Guest from Elgin, IL Posted September 27, 2011
I purchased this plane to work on end grain on some red oak doors. It performed well right out of the box. I have used it on a few projects afterward including trimming down the millimeters of solid wood edging where it projected above the plywood shelf body due to the solid edging being intentionally cut a little thick. I was able to cut ribbons of wood from the solid edge and produce a smooth surface without tearing up the plywood veneer. No sanding required.

We can still make a good product. The only minus to me is I prefer dark wood on my tools. I was a machinist for many years, so I know iron moves during and after grinding, it will also move as a result of heat, cold, storage,ect.Always check cast iron perodically.Mine performed out of the box. Will be around longer than I.

This may sound a little nit...

Chris S from Norcross, GA Posted January 14, 2010
This may sound a little nit picky, but when you spend this much for a plane you should be nit picky. Out of the box I see a sliver of light between my straight edge and the sole of the plane. It took about 5 minutes using 320 grit sandpaper to flatten the sole completely. I put a secondary bevel (<30 degrees) on the blade and was shooting end grain with very satisfying results. The mouth does not close as much as the LN bevel up jack, but that does not really matter as long as you put a 40-50 degree secondary bevel to plane the face of a board. I suggest buying an extra blade if you want to use this plane for both edge and face planning unless you really enjoy resharpening.
