Review Summary

These things are the bomb! Stanley hasn't made them in years but there are a lot of them floating out their on e-bay and at garage sales. They went out of favor as hand planes did, when electric sanders were invented and got popular.They have been a little slower in their come back than planes have been. But these things work wonderfully well when the blade is sharpened. It's like using a card scraper on steroids. Much easier on the fingers and hands than card scrapers.
There are others who have copied this design and can be found at woodworking stores , but if you find one of these at a garage sale, buy it since these new ones are selling for $40.00 and up. Apparently Stanley made a million of these things so their are still plenty of these out there.
