    So I just bought this planet. I ha e be we used one before. I thought they were fairly self explanatory. I bought it mainly to smooth and square up board edges and surfaces. After reading the "instructions" I am more confused than ever because it’s just not cutting no matter how I diddle with it. I’m sure this is user error but with all these knobs and levers to adjust , I don’t know how to set it to just… Cut. Suggestions?

    I’m from Indonesia, if you want to buy something like that, how do you do it?

  3. James Barros on April 14, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    I decided to make some hand dovetailed boxes for some friends, and am only now realizing the size of the project I was taking on. Everyone seems to agree I should make them a little proud and use a plane to take down the excess. If I’m making these out of quality hardwood is one of these going to end up more trouble than it’s worth or am I fine if I take the time to properly true and sharpen the blade?


    Thank you so much.

    This is just a blade sharpening video and says nothing about the plane.

  5. greg on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    I’ve got this exact plane.
    And I hate it!
    Maybe you got a better one than I did, but it is really sloppy in the hole.
    I’m a new WW. But I can’t get it to stop angling to the side. One side of the sole cuts a huge shaving or should I say a chip.
    While the other side of the sole cuts nothing.
    Maybe I’m setting it up wrong.

    This one very thin, I want more weighted planner. thanks.

  7. Green Building on April 14, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    Nice video man its real.. But its more to how to sharpening blade and stone diamond tutorial than reviewing a plane

  8. Sherryl Keith on April 14, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    I made it too. Want to know how ? just go to woodprix webpage.

  9. Tim Plympton on April 14, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    Mine came flying out of the package and landed on the concrete floor when I opened it.

    Where l can by it..15 $

  11. David Parry on April 14, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    I just returned one I bought yesterday…pretty inferior, clunky, stamped out imitation tool…not worth the many hours to bring it up to being just a mediocre tool.I thought the price was worth it at first but it’s not.Good deal if you have hrs. and hrs. to piss away trying to true the thing up.

  12. DragginCrawllin RC on April 14, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Focus your camera your blinding me!!

  13. Gabriel ga vare on April 14, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Thanks 👌

  14. Regular Father on April 14, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    I’ve always been a fan of budget tools. all these guys out there spending money on tools that can be had much cheaper, they just don’t say "Grizzly" on the side. Half the tools I own were either picked up at yard sales or bought at Harbor Freight, and I’ll tell ya the only tool that has ever failed to do its job right was me.

  15. Robert Harrington on April 14, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    What do you know? The man did not say it was junk, He said it was pretty good

  16. glenn barthelemy on April 14, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Bro learn how to focus!!

  17. USAGeorge Pa. on April 14, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    That plane is a pretty rough start. Yea it can be brought into reasonable service but frankly it’s a piece of junk.. I have one,it works ok but still it’s a crappy tool…BTw there is no good $15 dollar plane that’s new.. Better off to buy an old plane and work it up to full function,,,takes less time and in the end you have a tool that will last your lifetime.

  18. Tami Velez on April 14, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Sorry maybe its been asked but the device you put the blade in to sharpen on stone, what’s that called to I can order?

  19. russell hill on April 14, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    I need a small plane and You have sold me. Thanks.

  20. ared18t on April 14, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Young je showed how to make one of these sing like a canary.

    Poor video.

  22. Marti McCaleb on April 14, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    "This isn’t really a sharpening tutorial video" he says repeatedly while spending seven minutes of a ten minute video sharpening the blade…

  23. DYNABIKE1 on April 14, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    I was hoping You would have done more assembly and adjustment demoing. I got one of these and was looking for help on it all Not just blade sharpening.

  24. Shogun-Jimi on April 14, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    click bait title – you never really answered that question –

  25. Tom Recane on April 14, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    These planes really are "kits" that give you some roughly finished plane parts. You have to do the final work yourself.

    In my case:
    The sole was not flat around the mouth and needed extensive work.

    The blade was not ground square.

    The blade will not sit square in the opening. I have to push the adjuster all the way to one side.

    The opening is not square and straight.

    The sliding mouth is not square.

    All of this is very fixable. Again, think of this as a $15 plane kit and you won’t be disappointed. After all, how much work would you have to do to make/buy all the parts separately? It’s kind of a bargain.

  26. Frank Artieta on April 14, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    I am going to buy one of these
    I am going to build a boat and can use a block plane
    I accidentally seen this video
    Yes I agree these planes work just fine !

  27. steven lang on April 14, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    This is a copy of a Record block plan in all. If I remember that the adjustable shoe is short to the slot compared to a Stanley etc. This meant when you adjust the shoe to close the throat down you expose the milled horns at the front on the sole of the plane body! These are very Sharpe and dangerous if not careful! I took mine back I feel this is a design flaw to the Record and Kolbolt block plane. Do your home work! The devils in the details always! You can get the stanley used for less and better block plane! Same amount of work to prep!

  28. Barry Kery on April 14, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Mine never cut true. It did cut smooth but not true. I finally checked the blade and the cutting edge was NOT perpendicular to the side of the blade. It was way off. It took me an hour to square and sharpen the blade. Cuts great now. I want to find tune my shavings. Right now I am taking .014" per cut.

  29. 0ddSavant on April 14, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Nice video. Couple places I might have made different choices on editing and I’m OCD as hell on blades but – then again, I didn’t make it 😎.
    I defy enjoyed your work, keep it up.

  30. Robert Spina on April 14, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    I own one of these it does a good job

  31. Frank Suarez on April 14, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    "You get what you pay for."

    "But, I have no money."

    I love the mantra of blacksmiths: "Need a tool, make a tool." The plane looks well many, but I think the cost cutting goes into not finishing a product. This was one of the issues with the $600 metal lathe. A YouTuber found nearly all the parts unfinished.

  32. Robert Aylor on April 14, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Mine was NOWHERE near that good out of the box

  33. David Joe on April 14, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    You just can’t focus 🙁

  34. Ludwig Copenhagen on April 14, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Thanks, you answered my question on the Kobalt block plane.

  35. Hold Fast on April 14, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Meanwhile here in Australia we pay $178 for a Stanley 6" Block Plane.

  36. Carbonite Gamorrean on April 14, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Mine does great out of the package (25 microns) 40 normally, cant wait to fettle it. Hopefully I don’t ruin it. but if i do they will give me a new one so it’s a win win win

  37. mvfd1224 on April 14, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Do you use straight Windex for lapping fluid?

  38. DeGuzman Design on April 14, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Camera be like "nope, I’m focusing on the background "

  39. Will Black on April 14, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    What a great video! I have some really nice planes, but watched anyway. Great instruction. I am also told that even a Lie-Nielsen plane needs sharpening before first use and that’s a high end plane.

  40. Ed Rhodes on April 14, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Sure it can . It’s gonna take you hours of work to do it. 25 bux for the plane plus 5 hours of work.
    Buy the lie neilsin plane for a 100 bux , ready out of the box.

  41. A Carpenter's Son on April 14, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Those medic scissors cut just about anything. I’m a medic, so I keep a pair. Are you a medic or do you have a medic or nurse in the family? I used that plane today. Works great. The blade sharpened easily. Seems to be a soft metal.

  42. Hashida Tackey on April 14, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    I bought it before I watched this video

  43. Te Duc Truong on April 14, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    where can I purchase this product?

  44. Paul Frederick on April 14, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Wood planes are not rocket science. So plenty of manufacturers can make them. The key is certainly having a good edge on your iron. Having a sharpening system that works for you is critical in woodworking.

  45. Leo Diaz on April 14, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Hi sir. What do you call that thing that holds the blade at an angle?

  46. elijah williams on April 14, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I had the same issue with my kobalt small 4 inch plane needed it for smoothing something at the time that was small now I have more wood planes and others lol

  47. Rick Price on April 14, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    The Kobalt plane isn’t Bad and after all, ti is justa block plane, isn’t it. A few years back i bought an old Stanley block plane (also fixed mouth) a #4 and a #5 1/2 for $12 at a flea market. Used and not in the best of shape including some rust. A few hours of work on each and a full day on the #5 1/2 and i had three planes that cut shavings at just under .001 on some decent poplar I had around. If getting a big box store suits you and all you really need is a very average block plane. Be aware though that at Highland Hardware’s web site you can get a BRAND NEW Stanley #9 1/2 Block Plane or the #60 1/2 low angle block plane for just $45 each. The choice is yours – Kobalt that lasts until it breaks and delivers OK cuts or a Stanley that you’ll have from now on.

  48. Robert Lord Zimlich on April 14, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    I love my Kobalt plane. Well worth an hour flattening the sole, and the bottom of iron, plus honing iron on diamond plates. After getting adjusted, this little bugger was peeling off tissue-thin shavings. I mostly use for edge planing. https://photos-us.bazaarvoice.com/photo/2/cGhvdG86bG93ZXM/d0d2c284-fab3-5394-8287-a7b918e3aa22

  49. Barry Kery on April 14, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Great informative video. I learned more on how to hone a blade than I did use the tools. Ha Ha
    Where did you get the guide tool for honing the blade? I always used light oil for honing. I’ll have to try cheap window cleaner. It sure is easier to clean off the table top using window cleaner than it is oil.

  50. Blake Uhran on April 14, 2022 at 7:01 pm
