    Bought this one too from dictum last week. adjustable mouth version.
    The edges are little bit sharp.
    A file and some 1000 grid sandpaper will remove it.
    The mouth had some small burs.
    Again same sandpaper
    The blade isn’t very sharp. So use their free sharpening service when you order any dictum brand planes/scissels.
    The blade is 99,9%straight.
    Yep,same sandpaper
    My extra blade is sharpened to 30 degrees (max) and extremely sharp, used their free service on this one. That’s how I know the difference.
    The sole is 99.95% flat
    It has some very minor dents 2cm behind the mouth. These dents are on both sides and 1,5cm long 6mm wide and 0,01mm deep.
    It’s about 730gr, 20cm long 5cm wide.
    This little beauty costs just under 80 euro

    Purchased one of these a couple of weeks ago. The plane is excellent and needed very little effort to flatten and sharpen. So what more can you ask for if you do not want to pay Clifton, LN or Veritas prices? It has certainly improved the quality of my hand cut tenons. Just a great pity that modern day Sheffield cannot produce similar quality tools at similar prices. Thanks for your review.

    I have both the rebate and the non rebate Qiangsheng planes. The non rebate is more comfortable if you are not rebating, but if you are only going to buy one then I would get the rebate for its versatility. They are heavy, so not so good for long continuous work, but then block planes aren’t for that anyway. I save them for best and still use my Stanley for less demanding work. They are very good value and mine needed no fettling. You have to be sure when fettling that you are working on a perfectly flat surface or you will make them worse, and you can’t assume sandpaper is perfectly flat.

    Matthew at Workshop heaven guarantees the planes for the rest of the customers life………one word to him and he woulda took it back and sent a new one, no doubt in my mind….they are a VERY good company indeed. Did you contact them??

    I have a very similar JUUMA plane, I believe it is the same manufacturer but made for fine-tools in Germany. No fancy plywood box but brass depth adjustment knob. Quality for the price is superb. 70 Euro vs 230 Euro for Lie Nielsen… Come on! I can pay more for better tool, but Lie Nielsen is maybe 5-10% better and over 3 times more expensive. That is just absurd. Sole in mine was very flat, basically no work needed there. I rounded brass iron cup a little, edges where you access wheel were not perfect (not sharp, just not perfect). Only issue is that sides are not perfectly square. One I could pass on, but the other need a little work, I will do that eventually if it will give me issues, as it is not that easy to do. Super happy with it, ordered low angle block right after I got this one.

    Is this the same plane as the "Baym" rabbet plane on Amazon? Great, informative review, btw!

    Hi Graham great review I have the same plane under a different name. I’m in Canada when I was looking for a plane I looked at the Lie Nielsen but it was going to cost me $417.00 with a extra blade. The plane I got from a dealer in Germany cost $167.00 with a extra blade. I spend about 20 minutes flattening the sole. So far it’s been a great plane. Thanks Bob

    I like your channel, for $75 dollars more you could have gotten the Lie Nielsen. I noticed you do not go cheap on tools. But these are perfect out of the box. Not a criticism. πŸ™‚ Keep up the great videos! https://www.lie-nielsen.com/products/rabbet-block-plane-w-nicker?path=block-planes&node=4072

    +4 years ago there were people who even compared quangsheng planes to lie-nielsen’s in terms of quality, would you say those statements are outdated nowadays?
    I just bought one of these (the adjustable mouth one, not the rabbet plane kind) for 99 dollars (shipping included, from China to latin america).
    Since the price of lie-nielsen block planes in here is around 350 dollars, would you say it was a good trade?
    thank you very much beforehand, greetings from Chile.

    Is this available on online shopping

  11. robin alexander on August 19, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Have the plane, paid $109 Aud ,brought it from fine tools Australia, did not have flattening problems as you did. The two planes are same maker just rebranded different because trying to sell Chinese plane in America would have been difficult so it was rebranded wood river this is the information I got when I started look at block planes. Cheers from Tasmania
