The Quangsheng No. 3 smoothing plane is a lighter, slightly narrower version of the No 4. Usually used with a three finger grip (the index finger rests on the side of the blade), the No.3 has a delicate, precise feel and is a good choice for smaller workpieces, younger woodworkers, or people with smaller hands.

Smoothing planes are designed to take very fine shavings to create the final surface that you will present to your client. Their short sole allows them to make continuous contact with the timber and leave a clean, consistent finish.

Quangsheng bedrock pattern handplanes, unlike the more common Bailey pattern, have a full contact area between the body and the frog, hence the name 'bedrock'. The frog can also be adjusted to widen or narrow the mouth of the plane without the need to remove the irons. Simply loosen the two locking screws on either side at the back of the frog, adjust the central screw to set your desired mouth opening and then nip up the side screws again. This system is easier, faster, much more accurate, and less likely to damage the cutting edge.

    brought a no3 at christmas straight from the box planed end grain English oak,blade was razer sharp,body laser straight on mine no work needed and the price was right for such high end engineering ,i have looked at lie nelson and other expensive planes and with the exception of vertas i can,t see why they are charging so much for a reproduction plane ie stanley and bedrock.i would and are going to buy more Quangsheng planes unbelievable quality for the money

    Have recently purchased quangsheng no 3 plane and must say how absolutely delighted I am with it. As soon as you take it out of the box (which is also very well made) you realise what a quality product you have.I spent 2 minutes honing it ,and it produced a glass like finish on some quartersawn oak. I will most definitely be buying more of these excellent tools.

    I've just bought one of these - it is as much of a pleasure to use as it is a pleasure to look at. Beautifully put together from top quality materials and produces excellent results. Very good value for money.
