For a beginner hobbyist woodworker just getting interested in hand tools I thought this would be a great price for a bench plane. The plane iron was relatively good out of the box, just needed some sharpening.The cap iron (chip breaker) didn't sit well at all and wood shavings were getting between the 2 irons.
I opened the box, cleaned the heavy machine oil off the working surface with solvent, tightened handles and honed the blade (took 20 minutes total). I wast expecting much from it because of the price but it ended up being a LOT worse that what I expected.
The rugged high carbon steel cutter on this bench plane is ideal for general purpose work and can be easily adjusted for depth of cut.
I've been taking some time lately to hone my sharpening skills and encountered the idea of building my own hand planes.
I didn't chisel the tapers all the way to the full width at the top-front of the abutments but I'll widen each side with my drill press sander for finger access to the shavings. The best advice would be to talk to one of our specialty department professionals at your local Home Depot store as they will have information concerning the warranty there.


It took a few hours of sharpening and honing to get the cap iron sitting flush with the cutting iron. It was a video from the English Woodworker that finally helped me understand the tool and know what I needed to do to fix it. After some honing and tweaking, it is pretty servicable, but is clearly not a high quality plane. Features include well finished hardwood handles with brass fittings for comfort and control, making this a great bench plane for a variety of woodworking projects! It's a very attractive idea since good handplanes are anywhere from very to extremely expensive, and being able to make my own would allow me to build any variation of specialty plane I might want to try.
I clamped the halves together and drilled holes for two dowels that will keep the halves from sliding out of alignment while the glue dries. An expert may be able to tweek it for functionality, but personally I'd rather shell out for a better quality product.
Plus, my CNC router makes forming the basic shapes as easy as digitizing my idea into CAM software. I tried to keep glue away from the bed but there was a significant amount of squeezeout which I mostly wiped away. Luckily I haven't had to sand down the bottom, but I will be checking that soon to make sure it is flat.


Unfortunately, home depot is the only store around and this is the only planer Home Depot sells.
I decided to build a large smoothing plane with a similar approach to the one in the Mike's CNC Shop youtube video. A solid wood handle offers a comfortable grip and the polished body and frame delivers lasting quality. I prepared two planks of white oak a little less than 1.5" thick and drew a basic shape into Cambam. 33 Bench Plane:Out of the box it's pretty rough, but with a little elbow grease this little guy can do a dang fine job.
Obviously you'll want to hone the iron and do some touch up to get all the mating surfaces flat between the frog, the iron, and the cap. Clean and lubricate the adjustment screws, and check that the sole is flat (I checked out a few at the store and picked the best looking one) .
I really only spent about an hour on mine and I'm getting paper thin shavings, for $10 and an hour of my time I'd say it's an excellent value, just don't expect to use it right out of the box.
