Editor's Review: Tool Test: Block Planes

by Mario Rodriguez

review date: July 26, 2012

Nicely balanced with integral handgrips; process of installing the blade and getting it set up was tedious but once set, adjustments were smooth; overall quality is excellent; light weight makes it difficult to push along wider work surfaces; short blade can be difficult to sharpen; sole was flat.
