Time or money, this is a sub $50.00 plane, don't expect Lie Neilson or Wood River quality or finish. This plane has good bones, invest some time and sweat and you would have a very capable plane. Let YouTube be your master as there are no manuals included.
All but the most expensive planes out of the box required some tuning.
My plane came with deep machine marks on the sole, a couple of hours to remove and flatten. Squareness of sides was acceptable, I already have a plane for use on a shooting board.
Big disappointment was the cap iron. The distance on the chip breaker between the port for the Y-lever adjustment and the cap iron screw is incorrect. Result is that the plane can not be set up to be a really tight smoother. I had a 3rd party cap iron and that solved the problem. I also replaced the blade with a more modern (thicker ~1/8") blade i already had.
I oiled the contact points, sharpened the blade and cap iron and tested; I have a very capable, albeit upgraded, plane, no chattering, super smooth and thin shavings.
I will, at some time get around to properly flattening the frog and it's contact points on the sole, when I have more time, if my OCD kicks in. I gently ran a flat file across the face of the frog to take off the high points and burrs along the edges which I found with my finger.
This plane has good bones, invest some time and you can have a good working hand plane at a great price, and you will know everything about it by the time you are finished tuning.
