Everyone needs one!... Review by Bob @ Mingarry Joinery
Rating
Having recently bought both the Quangsheng low angle block plane and low angle rebate block plane I was so blown away by the quality v excellent value that I was eager to try other planes from the Quangsheng range.
Browsing on ebay the other day my eyes were drawn to an advert for a low angle jack plane complete with three additional blades....
The plane was advertised as pre-owned and was on a nine day auctio... hmmm not for me; I contacted the seller and agreed a buy now price; the deal was done and the plane duly arrived. Oh my god; it had never been used at all, none of the irons had been honed... amazing! And all for less than half the original price!!!
Off to the shed, one minute to hone and apply a back bevel and wow! Possibly the best plane I have ever had the pleasure to use... absolutely effortless to use, beautifully weighted; fantastic! Unfortunatley the batteries in my Vernier gauge or flat but my god the shavings are ever ever so fine.
Faults? Well, yes there are a few niggling things but nothing that can't be rectified. The boss on which the front knob and mouth adjuster are mounted was possibly the worst bit of machining I have ever witnessed and the adjustable mouth isn't parralel to the blade. Both of these issues are easily rectified with a file and wet and dry.
The only other issue is that the Norris style adjuster provides virtually no adjustment... the blade is such a snug fit in the body that there is no room for movement. This of course means that accuracy in keeping the cutting edge square is going to be vitally important.
Overall this plane, even at full price, is amazing value and a truly superb tool. I would honestly be very surprised if either a Veritas or Lie Nielsen tool could be any better other than in bling factor...,
The 'establishment' suggest that a low angle jack plane is something you use very little...personally I doubt that this will be true so go on spoil yourself! (Posted on 10/08/2017)
Amazing Plane Review by Ken

I had some really nasty Pine timber that I was going to throw away. But With the 25 degree blade set for a very fine shaving, and the mouth closed up, it came out like glass.

I'm very Impressed with the all-round quality of this plane.

Top quality plane, excellent value for money. Review by Keven

Very pleased with this plane. Just a tiny amount to take off the toe and heel to flatten the sole but otherwise very impressive build quality. I used a so-called heirloom plane on a cabinet-making course, this is a very close copy and in use I defy a "mortal" woodworker to feel any difference.

Waters and Acland Furniture School Review by Guest

These Quangsheng planes from Workshop Heaven are excellent quality and great value for money. Buy them here as others claiming to be from the same factory just won't have the same quality control. We have a number of these planes both in our school and also in our fine furniture workshop.

Brilliant plane Review by keith
Rating
After much research I went for this plane, even though I had a slight niggle that it was made in the far east. When it arrived I was blown away by the build quality. The chip breaker is well made as are the three irons supplied. A top notch well made plane at the most amazing price.

Better value than a Stanley Sweetheart Review by John B.

I can't justify to myself (or my dear wife) splashing out on Veritas or Lie-Nielsen. I tried a Stanley SW 62 low angle jack and had to send it back. I spent the refund - and a little more - on one of these and I am so pleased with it - an excellent tool, beautifully made.

An excellent addition to my tool kit. Review by B. Lowis.

I am very pleased with this plane. It is of excellent quality and with the inclusion of the additional blades is also very versatile. Highly recommended.

Excellent Addition To Workshop Review by John
Rating
Had rare chance today to use oak.
04 and 51/2 planes, and this one with its standard cutter badly tore strips out of the grain, but a change to the 50 degree cutter resulted in perfectly smooth edges. A change back to the standard cutter made trimming the end grain remarkably easy. VERY IMPRESED!

Whats the point??? Review by Guest

Why bother to ask for a customers review on a product when you only post the ones you choose? The plane I ordered from you was seriously sub standard and poorly machined. I can only assume that the reviews you have posted are from inexperienced wood workers with insufficient knowledge on the matter.
