Editor's Review: Block Planes for Builders

review date: May 1, 2008

A STANLEY KNOCKOFF FOR $10 LESS. I’ve seen some bargain-priced "contractor-grade" block planes that wouldn’t be worth using even if they were free. However, the Groz is an economically priced plane that I would hold on to. Made in India, this low-angle plane is almost an exact knockoff of Stanley’s version, but with slightly better fit and finish. The size and weight felt comfortable in my hand and in my tool apron. The major flaw with this plane is that the adjustable throat plate doesn’t move close enough to the blade to aid in taking a super-thin shaving.
