Good planes don't have to cost a fortune

Review Summary

I've been a serious woodworker for many years , but really haven't used hand planes very much, since I've been more of a power tool guy. I found this plane when going through some storage bins I hadn't checked in a while, so I thought I would give it a go. I'm not sure if I inherited this plane or purchased it many years back and just set it aside. Either way I adjusted it and found that it works very very well for edge trimming to fit inset doors.
Really well made, solid little plane and easy to take to the job site. This little plane actually got me started on using more hand tools.
