Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stanley Block Plane Wanted or to be totally honest needed a reasonably priced plane, that was small for light work and secondly not take up too much space in the tool box. Its size was a big factor for me as I generally would only be using it two or three times a week, but need to carry it with me just in case. Sod's law really if I didn't carry it with me, that's the time I would really need it. Well Sod and his Law happened again last Saturday morning, ordered it via the Screwfix mobile app and collected it 20mins later, it got me out of trouble where I had expected a quick pass with a surform would have been enough! The plane feels ok in the hand, maybe a touch too small for someone with sausage fingers but perfect for my needs. Very quick and easy to setup and adjust straight out of the packaging. Anyone who ever did carpentry at school in the 70's will be on auto pilot doing it in under 30 seconds. I'm not a carpenter or cabinet maker, but for me this plane feels solid, well put together and with care it should out live me! Long and the short of it is, its paid for itself within an hour of purchasing it, and will no doubt save me significant time and effort on future jobs, because it earned a permanent position in my general toolbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plane I wish I'd bought this sooner. The blade needed honing and adjusting but could have been used out of the box if you're not fussy. It's easy to set and adjust, feels very solid in the hand, takes an edge and keeps it very well. One of the better planes I've used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plane and simple I bought this plane for general carpentry. Shaving door edges, frames etc. I was a little concerned about the set up but I have to say it was simple. The blade needed a minor adjustment but trust me when I say.... anyone can do it!!! It retracts easily for storage which prevents any damage to the blade. It is very good value for money... I would have liked a case or pouch but for the price I’m not going to grumble. Recommended .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stanley Block Plane Very good block plane for the money, Fits nicely in your hand, came with basic instructions but only takes a couple of minutes to adjust the blade.

New blade

Hi, I require a new blade for my Stanley block plane. It has large chips in it so beyond sharpening. Where can I aquire a new one? Thanks
Asked by: Chippy49678
Hi there, if your plane lookd identical to the one on Screwfix model 1-12-220. Then the newest replacement iron code would be 0-12-508. (If yours looks an older model you will need to source 0-12-331 spare iron)
