    Remember when copy of an established brand was poor business practice? Essentially copyright infringement with no recourse due to china law Luban can chew trouser chowder for all I care

    Which do you recommend? The veritas a LN are in my budget, but this will be my first plane and I have loads of tools on my list.

    just bought a luban, wondered if this review is still up to date.
    haven’t seen many resent reviews regarding quangsheng planes.
    greetings from Chile.

    All the research and development put in by Lie-Neilson yet again stollen by Chinese knock offs. Lets just get everything made in China why don’t we…

    Lie Nielsen copied Stanley plane’s in the first place, so how can Luban plane’s be Copying Lie Nielsen ? Admitting Lie Nielsen plane’s are fantastic high quality plane’s but for the money Luban plane’s are amazing.

    Just curious, why does the word copy or clone always makes it way out when the product is made in China? But the same would not happen when it’s made in USA? I mean LN copies all of Stanley’s design but no one used to word copy or clone, or as LN puts it "loosely based on".

    Luban is Wood River

    Stealing from lie Nielsen.. why do you’ll keep buying Chinese it’s theft



  9. Rocket Creations on November 14, 2022 at 5:02 am

    I was told when I bought my last Luban that its the European name they sell under. In the USA they are sold under the Woodriver brand. Looking at the designs in inclined to agree with that.

    Help! Okay, I am a beginner with my first Lie Neilson Rabbeting block plane. No way is mine shaving that easily. It’s honed to five thousand grit. One side is cutting deeper, so I need to shift the blade correct? I am trying to shave off Sepele wood. Any suggestions?

    I had to replace two Irons I broke trying to get out a belly , so I ordered a replacement Iron and cap iron both are at least 3mm think can’t wait to try them out.

    Luban is great. It is like a Sigma ART in photography. Nobody believed in those lense when they showed up on market and now they are sometimes better than Canon or Nikon.



  13. Tony Jaros on November 14, 2022 at 5:12 am

    Great result there Walter, super thin shavings.. mmm.mm



  14. Green Building on November 14, 2022 at 5:14 am

    Thanks for doing this video its really helping me to decide and choose.. Btw out of topic im sorry for this, what is the most useful chisel do you recommend (brand and size) thanks in advance



  15. azhar salim on November 14, 2022 at 5:14 am

    Only certain species of wood, will produce very very thin shavings such as that. Other species may be otherwise. I hv been woodworking since 1980 and most wood from my area does not hv that characteristics. I have however tried Japanese Cedar and yes, they can be finely planed to produce thin shavings.



  16. settebello28 on November 14, 2022 at 5:15 am

    hi, does the blade has 25 or 30°?



  17. Green Building on November 14, 2022 at 5:16 am

    i just bought Luban because of this video 😬This Block Plane is really2 amazing 👍👍



  18. iShootBandits on November 14, 2022 at 5:20 am

    If your on a budget the Luban is a great plane for the price.



  19. UreaSmith on November 14, 2022 at 5:20 am

    subscribed. I enjoy very much your handplane videos please keep doing them.



  20. Carl Dowling on November 14, 2022 at 5:20 am

    Yup could do that and watch that all day, thanks



  21. Tim B. on November 14, 2022 at 5:30 am

    Sexy shavings, however the reason for the low angle block plane’s existence is the need to trim end grain and cross grain. It’s easy to get a well sharpened cheap plane to make nice shavings working down edge grain, not so easy cross grain. So it would be great if you could compare these planes doing the job for which they are intended—trimming tenon cheeks for example. I would love to add a more affordable rabbeting block plane to my arsenal, but my suspicion is that the cheaper model will bite and chatter with it’s intended tasks.



  22. Lumens on November 14, 2022 at 5:30 am

    Great video



  23. Blackrain4xmas on November 14, 2022 at 5:32 am

    YES
    Yes I could watch that all day, and
    NO
    No I can’t get any of my planes to shave that fine!!!

    AMAZING

    I enjoy your videos.I chose to contact you as you might find this of interest. I also have among my block planes a LN and Quangsheng 60 1/2 low angle block plane, the same company that makes the Luban that you have.. Like you I found the blade took and held a good edge. I had the mouth open about 1/16 of an inch as I was wanting to remove the corners quickly off some Tasmanian black wood to make dowels and hit a section where the grain changed direction and tore out a big chunk wood and a chip out of the blade. I put the Quangsheng block plane aside and finished with my LN. When I returned to the plane I I took a good look at the blade and found I had not only taken a chip out of the edge but the blade had two areas across the edge where a there was a crack parallel with the edge both about 1/16" from the edge and around 5/16 " long. . I decided to swap the blade out as I had a Veritas PMv11 blade freshly honed and ready to go. I found that I had to machine up a washer around around 3/32" thick with a hole to fit over the little raised nipple that the locking wheel presses against the blade as the slots in the after market blades extend all the way through and were chewing up the nipple which then went into the slot and prevented the blade from advancing/retracting. The disc that fits in the recess on the underside of the lock wheel solves that problem. I am suspicious that the T10 steel (what ever that is) that the Quangsheng blade is made of is not very shock resistant or has not been sufficiently tempered, I will grind the edge back and keep the blade as a spare. I can recall a leather working knife that I made, had an edge that chipped badly as you tried to sharpen it and it turned out to be a common problem with the first 1/16 inch of the blade where it was very thin. I reshaped the edge and the brittleness was gone. All the best

    hi there. What wood were you planing in this video?



  26. Jim Bo on November 14, 2022 at 5:37 am

    I have the qinagsheng rebating and the ordinary. Very happy with both but the ordinary is more comfortable when not rebating. Nosharp corners in your hand. I don’t want to pay lie Neilsen or Veritas prices. My main niggle with planes is the huge backlash with the depth adjusters. I feel there is little excuse these days with cnc machining.

    "What do you think?"

    Well, you asked. I think that it’s a bad idea to support people who rip off other people’s designs. Of course they can make the item for a lot less money. They aren’t spending a ton of money developing the thing in the first place. They buy one that’s already made by another company, take it apart and copy it.

    I have never seen the Luban up close. In fact, I first heard about it yesterday and searched for it to learn more which is how I found this video. I don’t know if it’s a rip-off and I’m not accusing them of that but it looks like it from what I can tell in the two videos I’ve seen so far.

    I ordered the Lie Nielsen yesterday because I don’t have any rabbet planes and like all Lie Nielsen planes, their low-angle block rabbeting block plane got great reviews. I’m sure I’m going to love it.

    Thanks for asking! 🙂

    PS. Beautiful shavings, by the way. I save all my chips and shaving for three different people who use them for bedding for their horses and chickens. 🙂



  28. Clif Brigden on November 14, 2022 at 5:38 am

    I could watch all day, for sure. It would be good to see the shavings up close though. The two side by side would be useful to look at.



  29. Billy Bob on November 14, 2022 at 5:39 am

    What type of wood here



  30. Vladimir Lopez on November 14, 2022 at 5:40 am

    Where can someone buy the Luban?



  31. Oswaldo Agurto on November 14, 2022 at 5:44 am

    Fun video good man!
