Editor's Review: Block Planes for Builders

review date: May 1, 2008

THE FIRST PLANE I EVER OWNED. Purchased at my local hardware store, a version of this Stanley rode in my tool apron for 10 years. The new plane I tried for this review is about the same as my old one. It’s small enough for me to use with one hand and comfortable to hold. The adjustment levers feel sturdy, if a little rough. Unfortunately, the thin blade was distressingly dull out of the box, and the sole surface needed to be smoothed with superfine sandpaper before I could use the tool. Expect to invest an hour tuning up this tool before you can use it.
