I recently pickup up a 3″ Buck Bros. Block Plane at Home Depot. I wanted to see if these are any good at all. Find out in this video.

  1. I use one of these to thin planks on model ships. Works well enough, but you’re right. The blade has to be adjusted every time I use it.

  2. Try flipping the blade so that the bevel is facing down. I set mine up that way, and it works wonderfully. When setting it up, I put it on a piece of glass, or any totally flat surface, and put a piece of paper just under the front of the block, let the blade drop down and sit flat against the glass, and tighten the screw.

  3. I just bought this today lol I used it when I was making a baby gate for my son for our balcony, it worked okay but it makes a great paper weight.

  4. I had mine for over a year. Mainly I use it to finish off woven corners when shingling. As others have said, bevel down and it’s a little champion. They take a bit of fettling, for sure, but if you treat it like a tiny bench plane, it’s a very handy thing to have in your tool belt.

  5. So I use this plane for the stringer on surfboards and couldnt get it to work good until I flipped the blade bevel down. Night and day
