Stanley Metal Surform Block Plane
Waste of money
Like all things, this is only as strong as its weakest part. What is the point, therefore, of marketing a product based on it having a metal chassis, when the only thing keeping the surform blade attached to it is a plastic bolt and tightener. Well, I used mine twice, and the plastic bolt sheared rendering it useless. Sure, I could replace the bolt with a metal one, but why not just make the product fit for purpose in the first instance? Best avoided.

An old favourite
I was surprised to find these still available. Mine must be over 40 years old now and still works. Needed another for use in UK..

Superb Tool at a good price
The Stanley Block Pane is superb for the small jobs like making the door fit the frame. It is so easy to use and to handle. A must for every tool box.
