Editor's Review: Metal Smoothing Planes

review date: April 7, 2011

Of all the planes under $100, the Anant performed best; chipbreaker needed tuning for a better fit with the blade.

I have recently purchased this plane, giving my older Stanley to my son. I had hoped that having an adjustable frog would help on tight grained woods. After putting a few passes to hone the blade, I reassembled planer. Trying it out on some scrap black walnut. The blade would not stay in position, constantly needing adjustment. Wish I had my Stanley back.
