Rated 1 out of 5Â by MrSifter Very poor quality
This plane is not worth the money. I took it back within 5 monutes of opening it. The casting is poor and the mechanism for setting the blade would not function.
I would avoid this plane and spend a bit more to get a better quality plane.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by JoinerJosh Low quality tool for price.
Low quality tool not flat, not square.
blade wasn't anywhere near square when i came to sharpen had to regrind to square, its very hard to alter angle of blade to get it running true with the mouth of the base,
i would stick with the stanley one like i used to use. or a older plane.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Paffer Fitting Wardrobe Doors
Used the Irwin Block Plane to finish the doors for built-in wardrobes. It was easy to trim the side of the wardrobe door whilst hung, reducing the time spent checking the doors closed without catching. I wish I'd bought this tool years ago.
I only started using the tool yesterday but I feel confident that this tool will last a long time, and be well used.
