Best Hand Plane For the Money I've Ever Used
Best Hand Plane For the Money I've Ever Used
In this video I give you a detailed tour of the best hand planes for the money that I’ve discovered so far. I’ve been woodworking professionally for 40 years, and used many hand planes. Most new planes produced today are cheap and poorly made, since price wars have driven quality lower and lower over the years. Not these ones. Quality is great and price is, too.

Great tutorial, thank you so much!
where these planes are made? or country of manufacture? thanks!
An excellent idea would be to post video when the product is actually AVAILABLE(in stock). Also to post links to the products you’re pitching for sale.
Great in-depth report. Thank you
I’m no wood worker but a machinist. I can see the nicer plane has high quality workmanship. I always buy high quality tools over cheap ones. Makes my job eaiser.
As it appears you are using pre-production samples it would be interesting to test a few examples from whenever product eventually becomes available (In a year or so?) and see if the production lives up to the samples. As the web site is careful not to mention where these are made one must assume China.
Didn’t see these models on there web site
This is absolutely a LOAD OF YOUTUBE CRAP MISLEADING NEW WOODWORKERS TO SELL PRODUCTS. SHAMEFUL! I am a collector and restorer of both modern planes like Veritas or Lie Nielsen and Vintage Records and Stanleys. Just because some guy has a white beard and wears a jean shirt, doesn’t mean he knows what he is talking about. MOST OF THESE ARE FLAT-OUT ADVERTISING LIES.
You need a good blade, but most modern so-called "garbage blades" from McBailey and VanRecords are plenty good. If you take care to sharpen to a convex grind or have a good secondary edge, there is no reason why they can’t be workable tools. There is absolutely NO WAY that you will get Rc65 out of a 01, you’d be lucky to get 59! O1 is just oil quenched, it’s not an "advanced steel". Even A2 are not going to hit 65 (max 63ish on good quality steel). Premium blades like PMV-11 doesn’t claim a Rc65 hardness.
The frog does not fully register to the blade in basically most designs. Your blade bends as soon as you stick a chipbreaker to it. Unless you can estimate the curvature of such bend, good luck shaping your frog to match it. The frog only needs to support your blade near the throat and at the point below the cap iron lever.
The sole only needs to be flat on the periphery, and before the throat for the plane to work perfectly fine. The issue is always, "what gets registered" and not "oh it’s just flat". Remember the chunk of wood you just took out? Yeah, nothing registers under that, nor do they need to.
Side squareness is pointless if you are not shooting with your plane. The sides also square to the sole, not the other way around (nice try). Even then, shooting doesn’t require a perfectly squared side as you are pressing into the work piece not riding on the bottom of the board.
Bonus: Most Sapele is used as a Honduran mahogany alternative (especially in guitar making). It can, but isn’t in fact a very hard hardwood. Hard Maple is stupid hard. They are not comparable. Sapele is soft and stable.
What a jackass. These thing are not affordable.
"Affordable" used very loosely here
Great stuff. Any idea when next online “Woodworking for Beginners” will run again?
Where can these be purchased?
Unfortunately not sold outside Canada
I watch your videos often but this was a 13 minute info commercial for Busy Bee products I hope they paid you well!
In where they made this planes?
A real pleasure to watch and listen to a man who knows his subject so thoroughly. Thanks.
I think I just watched an infomercial.
