    I was excited about this plane and immediately ordered it on January 12. My CC was charged the next day, January 13. It is now the 23rd and the order still has not shipped. What’s going on here Jonathan? You’ve had my money for 10 days, where’s my product?



  2. Robt Johnson on October 18, 2023 at 10:00 pm

    Dude, that is the best looking router plane I have seen. (Only been woodworking for a few years so I haven’t seen them all.) if my wife would let me I would order one just for the measuring gauge. But it looks rock solid too. I will get one eventually but I am drill saving for Still a 5 1/2 plane.



  3. 【DIY】METARO FACTORY / めたろ on October 18, 2023 at 10:02 pm

    Your voice and how to speak are very easy to understand



  4. Joseph Krug on October 18, 2023 at 10:04 pm

    This looks like a really cool router plane…but is the date on the website right? or did I just read it wrong: "6-10 weeks from 9/26". Does that really mean 6-10 weeks from Sept 2026? Or was it supposed to say Sept 2023?



  5. Hansang Bae on October 18, 2023 at 10:06 pm

    Can’t wait to take it for a whirl!



  6. Peter yam on October 18, 2023 at 10:06 pm

    Jonathan, do you have a 1/4 cutter for dado?



  7. Joe Kindon on October 18, 2023 at 10:07 pm

    I have the Veritas Large Plane, I am curious as to what advantages this will have over it. I already ordered so Im sold, but what can this plane do that I can’t do with my Veritas?



  8. twodko on October 18, 2023 at 10:10 pm

    I’m looking at this tool and wondering what a customer service nightmare people are going to have ordering one. KM Tools DOESN’T respond to emails, you offer "live chat" yet there is no link to get to it. I placed this order 127043 and sent an email regarding a correction to it.
    ZERO response.
    My advice folks is plan on being kept in the dark if you order anything on the KM Tools website.
    No Bueno.



  9. Cody Boudreau on October 18, 2023 at 10:14 pm

    Sold out ?



  10. David Fazenbaker on October 18, 2023 at 10:17 pm

    Look boss! The router plane! The router plane!



  11. Puppy Doc on October 18, 2023 at 10:17 pm

    I just received my router plane and can’t wait to try it out. I actually have a project on my bench right now waiting for me to try it out! It looks great with very solid construction and serious attention to detail. One suggestion… perhaps some type of plastic cap to protect the blade edges? Thanks for all the great videos!!



  12. Ac ille on October 18, 2023 at 10:19 pm

    My deep dive into whether to get the Veritas or the LN led to this video, and a purchase. It seems like it combines the advantages of both with the addition of the depth gauge.



  13. bob loblaw on October 18, 2023 at 10:19 pm

    nice video….but dude, Egg-sits are for hens, its EX-it lol



  14. Ron Hau on October 18, 2023 at 10:22 pm

    I ordered this the other day. My big hope/concern is the blade stays put. One reason I ordered this one (kinda embarrassing to admit) but it’s just pretty, plus the fence comes with it and it’s bigger than the LN.



  15. Kubata Capoeira Antiga on October 18, 2023 at 10:25 pm

    Looks amazing. Can you do curve lines with it? Trace designs?



  16. lequse jones on October 18, 2023 at 10:26 pm

    Hi. Im reaching out because I’ve designed a stop block system that works very well. I really cannot be bothered to fully develop the concept, (but I’ve made thousands of perfect halflap joints with my system. If you think maybe there is a chance that we can collabo, then please respond to ths comment. Honestly, I really like my stop block system, it does not need tee track (though it is compatible with some tee tracks…I live in Nigeria dn amazon takes like 3 months to get here so i had to kinda wing it and I am super happy with the results!



  17. xenidis3 on October 18, 2023 at 10:26 pm

    Is the depth adjustment quick release? Like open the adjustment screw and allow the cutter to bottom out instead of turning the adjustment screw and feeling/seeing the plane moves when it bottoms out



  18. Jim Bo on October 18, 2023 at 10:26 pm

    Zero backlash! That’s wonderful engineering.



  19. Lincoln Dickerson on October 18, 2023 at 10:28 pm

    This tool is currently on the top of my wishlist. I am curious about one thing. A few months ago you and Tamar worked together on a trim router base plate. You mentioned using a base plate with this router plane several times. Does the 3×3 trim router base fit using pre existing holes in the base plate. Would you recommend using these two together? Thanks. I am very excited about this router plane.



  20. Stu Farnham on October 18, 2023 at 10:29 pm

    If the build quality holds up to the design this will be a wonderful tool. I have placed an order and am eager to see.



  21. Lucid Moses on October 18, 2023 at 10:31 pm

    saw you on Blacktail Studio. Man you where lucky.



  22. Marius Hegli on October 18, 2023 at 10:31 pm

    I have nothing to say really, but I appreciate your content, and wish to help with the yt-algorithms.



  23. Eddie Mcgrath on October 18, 2023 at 10:31 pm

    would one of these be any use shaving a weld in pvc windows?



  24. Aadil Shah on October 18, 2023 at 10:32 pm

    I found this router plane on a popular Chinese marketplace
    When I asked Rex Krueger to take a look, he mentioned you
    now I’m subscribed here too



  25. Shane Hertzog on October 18, 2023 at 10:32 pm

    This beautifull router just arrived at my house i was so impressed way it is made. I was blown away with it what is super is the instruction manual excellent it is . australia.



  26. Bad Apple Woodwerx - Tim McDougald on October 18, 2023 at 10:34 pm

    I was hoping you would also talk about sharpening a router plane iron as well, and how it differs from hand plane irons.



  27. Jon Dodsworth on October 18, 2023 at 10:35 pm

    Which one came first? This one or the Veritas one which looks identical?



  28. Eric Luba on October 18, 2023 at 10:36 pm

    Omg I didn’t know you had your own now I have to buy one of them to 😅



  29. Lori on October 18, 2023 at 10:37 pm

    Looks like an awesome router plane…..congratulations Jonathan! I’d really like to see you do a short video on sharpening the blades on your router plane since they are a unique design.



  30. Corey Schmidt on October 18, 2023 at 10:38 pm

    Plane is sold out, but no way to sign up for notification when you restock! Can’t wait to get my hands on this!



  31. One Handed Maker on October 18, 2023 at 10:38 pm

    Happy woodworking Jonathan and greetings from Australia.
    I have been watching your channel for a while and finally remembered to subscribe. I love the variety of topics and projects you create.
    Your workshop is a great backdrop for your videos and you did an amazing job on the router plane.
    Regards
    One Handed Maker



  32. Steve Ferguson on October 18, 2023 at 10:38 pm

    I just received my router plane from you yesterday. I also ordered the 4pc knife set. Jonathan it was so worth the wait and it’s a great tool. The quality of this is second to none. Hope to see more collaboration with Hongdui in future. Love it



  33. Christopher Pickslay on October 18, 2023 at 10:38 pm

    Thanks for convincing me to get another tool I didn’t know I needed



  34. Doug Manter on October 18, 2023 at 10:40 pm

    I’d order one in a heart beat, if I didn’t already have a Veritas with all of the accessories.



  35. beau dibble on October 18, 2023 at 10:41 pm

    Was gifted this tool by my wife. Absolutely beautiful and can’t wait to put it to work.
    Great stuff Jonathan



  36. artiranmor on October 18, 2023 at 10:42 pm

    hi. will the KM Router-plane be reproduced ? Is shipping to germany possible ?



  37. Nino Maiorano on October 18, 2023 at 10:42 pm

    Signed up for orders on this router fine but is the price such a big secret?

    I ordered from KM Tools and never received my order. I’ve used website help and email multi times and never received response. I have not located a phone number to call for inquiry.



  40. John Jones on October 18, 2023 at 10:42 pm

    Are you guna be adding extra cutters for your router plane. I’ve been wanting to buy a router plane for a while now. I heard you were coming out with one so I waited. I don’t have much money but when I purchase a tool I make sure n purchase quality tools. I really like the features of your router plane but I like that veritas has extra cutters. I don’t want to buy the wrong one and be sorry becuz I can only afford one



  41. Arthur and Teresa Beem on October 18, 2023 at 10:45 pm

    I had a question. Where is this made? Anything that is made here in the U.S. I want to push and support in every way we can, and the adjustments this has it should definitely go to the top of the list for sure! Thanks



  42. Shep on October 18, 2023 at 10:45 pm

    This looks like a really great piece of kit. If I hadn’t literally just bought a veritas about 3 months ago, I’d be all over this. Keep up with designing these awesome tools!



  43. HeliRy on October 18, 2023 at 10:46 pm

    Was this a one time only product? Can’t find it on your store at all, just replacement blades 😳



  44. Terri Stroh on October 18, 2023 at 10:48 pm

    I wawnt that!



  45. michael johnson on October 18, 2023 at 10:53 pm

  47. Mich050 on October 18, 2023 at 10:53 pm

    I’m searching for a router that will cut a binding ledge onto a guitar for edge binding. The channel is usually about 2mm wide and 5-8mm deep along the corner of guitar bodies. Could this tool to it?



  48. Steve Ferguson on October 18, 2023 at 10:54 pm

    I just ordered the KM-17 and the blade set. Can’t wait to get it in



  49. shockdocracing on October 18, 2023 at 10:54 pm

    Ordered one today! It’s gonna be a LONGGGGGGG 6-8 weeks!



  50. Kevin Winsor on October 18, 2023 at 10:54 pm

    I’ve owned a L-N and a Veritas. The K-M is a big improvement.
