For those who hate sharpening

Review Summary

This was actually the first plane I ever bought . Works immediately out of the box. Shavings as light and feathery as you could want. I've never taken a micrometer to measure thickness of shavings, but let me put it this way -- I can read the newspaper through them! (Maple shavings, that is.) I like this version better than the 220 with its horn shaped totes; seems to have a lower center of gravity, but I guess that's just a personal preference. This plane is built solidly.
the foot is actually made of laminated steel and is dead flat. It is so easy to set up and use, you can get to work. Dropped on the floor? No problem. Doesn't even phase it. The blades are stored in the handle and seem to stay sharp a long time. This is the perfect plane for those who just don't want to sharpen.
