Do not buy this bench plane. The polymer adjustment knob broke easily on mine. Stanley technical service were not helpful. I contacted Marshall & Parsons for a replacement piece. They offered me a kit at a price of £20. This has to be some kind of joke. I have lost faith in Stanley as a result - I would have thought Stanley would know how to support its products. Obviously not. I will be wary of buying any other Stanley tools. Paul Hannon

Top Tip: Do not buy this plane.

As a novice female DIYer I found this plane very easy to use and did not have any problems. The very sharp blade made my task effortless. It also feels good to hold due to the comfortable grip design.

Top Tip: Do not try to cut too deeply. Plane a little bit at a time to ensure a clean smooth finish. Clean after each use.
