Good Bones, needs fettling 08/22/2020 2:38:41 PM

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.

Good value for the price 08/19/2020 11:59:30 AM

I bought this as I have not been able to locate an old Stanely #5 at a resonable price. I have no regrets about this purchase. The plane is hefty and the sole nice and straight out of the box. All I needed to do was sharpen the iron. I intend to get the Grizzly #4 equivilant soon as well.

Love this plane! 08/10/2020 1:04:27 PM

First time using a plane and this was very easy to use. Great price and look for the money. Also a quality product-been using it for a few months now and no issues!

Great for the money 06/17/2020 11:49:38 AM

I took my first shaving ever thanks to this hand plane! Not sure how these are so cheap but I'm excited to buy the other two sizes. Setup took a couple of hours but that was expected. The bottom was pretty flat right out of the box. I really cant think of anything wrong with this plane (especially for the price). I only have douglas fir at the moment but the finish it left was by far better than what sanding will get you.

Amazing! 05/31/2020 3:46:17 AM

For $40 bucks I highly doubt you could find a better product. Got home today, and found a pallet board with a twist that wouldn't lay flat. Adjusted the plane to shave very small shavings from each stroke. Identified where the twist in the board needed to be removed, and wow. Within minutes I had the board sitting flat enough to run through the planer. No more wasting sand paper discs trying to flatten certain areas. As for other reviews !mentioning the base was not flat...I didn't see any issues. The base wasn't glass smooth, although it left the pallet board feeling as if it were heavily sanded with a high grain sand paper. I think people not picking some of these products are those kinds of people that blame products for their poor craftsmanship. But this hand plane. You will not regret it!

Excellent plane 05/02/2020 11:18:37 AM

I purchased this plane on the recommendation of a woodworking video I watched. It is well built and solid.
The blade was in need of a little bit of sharpening as expected, but the sole of the plane was very good.
It works well.

Works Great 01/25/2020 3:31:59 PM

I spent a lot of time sharping the blade. I feel it paid off cause the plane works great. I do want to find a flat surface to hone the base.

This is just the right jack plane for reclaimed and rough sawn lumber 11/15/2019 6:24:12 PM

I set up this 14" plane as a jack plane. I previously upgraded the iron and chip breaker in my Grizzly 10" smoother with Hock replacements, so I had an extra 2" wide set. I adjusted the frog so the mouth was big enough for rougher shavings and then ground one iron to a camber based on a 12" radius and the other based on a 9" radius. Now, I can hog off high spots as quickly or as gradually as the board needs, just by swapping out the iron / chip breaker combination. By the time I make my way through my pile of pallet wood and the firewood I ripped with my elderly Sears bandsaw, I should have enough workable wood to last all of next year. All for a lot less than I would have paid for an old Stanley #5 on eBay!

IT IS AN OK PRODUCT and GOOD VALUE 09/15/2019 6:02:04 PM

This plane is a good "Bailey" design but is inexpensively executed. The tote is not square to the body and the materials use to make the adjusting levers and locks is cheap. Surprisingly, the sole is square to the sides and the sole is reasonably flat. The mouth is "right-sized". The iron and chipper need a lot of work to be square and for the iron to be sharp. This is not just honing but requires some light grinding. For the money, it is a fair value. However, if you can spend $200 for a good plane or $50 for a Bailey style plane from the 70's or earlier, you should.

Nice plane 08/16/2019 3:44:52 PM

Bought this on sale. You never know when buying low end planes. But this was a good deal. It took a while to flatten the plane sole and remove the machining marks, but that was expected. Once sharpened, I used it to flatten a work bench that had become cupped over time. Quite a few hours later (and a barrel full of shavings) my bench was flat again.
If you like working with hand planes, this one was very acceptable for the price.

Good value 06/27/2019 11:40:34 AM

I bought this plane and found it to be a good value.it did require a decent tune up.sole needed to be properly flattened. The plane iron needed sharpening and honing but overall it is well made and if you do not mind putting a little time setting it up it is worth having.performs pretty well once properly tuned and it would be difficult to find a better plane in this price range.

Love this Plane 05/30/2019 1:40:32 PM

Plane is made of solid cast iron. The blade sharpens easily without the steel feeling too soft. Adjusting the depth of the cut is easy. I would definitely purchase another and will look at other grizzly planes in the future.

I didn't know this..... 05/27/2019 11:52:08 AM

I had no idea this plane would be as good as it is. I've been working with wood for years but only recently took up the finer side of it. This plane, I'm sure, will be just fine for my purposes. It's very well made and will probably last forever. I'm gonna go back for other sizes.

Great deal for the money 05/10/2019 11:25:32 PM

I'm learning woodworking on a budget and needed an affordable hand plane. I ran across this, saw some good reviews, and decided to chance it. As expected, it needed some work out of the box - flattening the sole with emery cloth, filing the chip breaker flat, and sharpening the blade. This took about 1/2 hour total. It definitely did the job. My friend offered to "resharpen" the blade and chip breaker for me using his high end stones. Now, I'm truly amazed at how good plane really is. It is solid and heavy, and cuts wood beautifully. It's a really, really, good deal on a hand tool of this type.

A great plane at twice the price. 04/04/2019 9:52:55 PM

I love my grizzly plane. All these years I thought I knew what a sharp plane and flat sole was, but my grizzly plane has raised my future expectations. I plan on upgrading my older planes to grizzlys soon.

Good value 02/27/2019 2:35:29 PM

I purchased this plane with no expectations. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked the plane out upon opening the package. At the price the plane could not have been "finished" like the $200 planes on the market but the finishing process was not as extensive as I had anticipated. On receiving a new plane there are several things to do besides sharpen the blade. I was pleasantly surprised that the bottom of the plane was fairly flat and required less time to flatten than I anticipated. I have not used it enough to determine the quality (read edge holding) of the blade but there are several very fine replacement blades of good quality steel out there. I figure maybe 4 hours work in total to get the plane where I want it. At this price point that is a bargain. As a professional woodworker I use planes quite a bit. This size is not a constant in my hand so I did not want to spend $300 for a premium plane. I feel I receive good quality for what I wanted. I own several Grizzly machined in my shop and while they each needed a little "tweaking" once done, they purr like my shop cats. I recommend this product.

A sturdy and reliable entry handplane 12/29/2017 8:08:12 PM

I bought this as my first foray into handtool woodworking, and found it to be a joy to use once you sharpen it and do the initial setup. It would have been nice if there was at least a single-sheet user manual to go with it as, once I had it apart, trying to figure out the right way to put it back together was a chore. I would definitely buy it again if I had to.

Very Good 05/19/2017 3:11:47 PM

I just got this plane. For the price, I'm not sure you can beat this plane. The sole and blade were dead flat. The weight and feel of it is good. There was a tiny nick in the blade and it was not what I would call sharp. It looked to be sharpened to about 400 - 600 grit. I had to put it on the grinder to take care of the chip and then sharpened it to 8000 grit. It took a looong time to sharpen, so it's good tool steel. I did about an hour of planing and the edge held up great.

Great Value 05/18/2017 11:29:30 AM

Bought this plane based on reviews and price. It works great, the iron is extremely long almost so long that it won't fit with the chip breaker attached. That just means there will be many years of use out of it. The sole is not quite as flat as I would like it to be, so I anticipate an hour's worth of tuning, but it is a great, quality product.

Great Product 03/25/2017 10:56:45 AM

I bought this plane a few days ago the shipping was quick and as soon as I opened the box I sensed quality the sole is perfectly flat like they say and the blade was sharp It sure does make nice thin shavings. I look forward to buy more grizzly tools down the road.
