Product Information:

Approximately 20 years ago Mujingfang decided to begin producing high quality Chinese Style Planes. Previously, the manufacture of these planes was a cottage industry with little or no quality control. Mujingfang gathered the best planemakers from around the country and brought them to their Hong Kong factory from where they supplied master craftsmen throughout South East Asia. Recently, they decided to offer their handmade planes to Western woodworkers. The body of our Adjustable Plough Plane is made from select pieces of Rosewood. The fence can be set to cut a groove 0" - 4" from the edge of the work piece. Five high carbon steel blades are included in sizes 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2". It can plough a groove up to 3/8" in depth. The blades are sharpened and will cut. But for best performance, they should be fully honed prior to use. The length of the plane is 7".

Comments about Mujingfang Rosewood Adjustable Plough Plane :

I bought this as I have been gaining more interest in wooden planes and wanted a wooden plough plane to "try out" that wouldn't set me back several hundred dollars. After flattening and honing the irons and spending some time tuning and adjusting the plane, I am quite happy with my purchase. I do not believe you could find anything better at a comparable price. My only complaints are the lack of adjustable depth stop and nicker. Though I have retrofittd my plane with a shop-made adjustable depth stop, and plan to install a nicker in the near future. You can get by without the nicker on cross-grain cuts by simply scoring the edge of the cut with a cutting gauge or knife, but adding a nicker would simplify things a bit. Overall I am very happy with the plane and would recommend it to anyone looking for a low-cost plough plane, as it does work very well, especially considering cost.

Comments about Mujingfang Rosewood Adjustable Plough Plane :

I needed a plough plane and couldn't find the acceptable version of the old Stanley or an original (because of price). That is why I bought Mujingfang Rosewood Adjustable Plough Plane. It comes with five irons to allow different groove widths, and has an adjustable fence allowing grooves that stand in from the edge, but there is not a depth stop. I am disappointed of the plane. It is not a 4 star plane.

Comments about Mujingfang Rosewood Adjustable Plough Plane :

I bought this plane as I am starting to love wooden planes, and thought it would make a good entry level tool. After I honed the five included irons, I tried it out on some cypress, cutting an edge groove. The fence, which cuts on either side, adjusts easily, although manually. With a little tweak I had the grooves dead center on a 3/4" board edge. The iron cut smoothly down to it's 3/8" non-adjustable depth with no problems at all. I have since used it on red oak with the same results. The oak tended to peel a bit along the grain at the cut edge, but a bit of sandpaper to ease it and viola'. I plan on getting a lot of use out of this tool.

Comments about Mujingfang Rosewood Adjustable Plough Plane :

I needed a plough plane, but couldn't afford the new version of the old Stanley or an original. This Chinese made beauty makes clean, basic grooves with the grain, at an affordable price. It comes with five irons to allow different groove widths, and has an adjustable fence allowing grooves that stand in from the edge. I've used this plane to make some frame and panel doors with very good results. The only thing it doesn't have is a depth stop. All grooves bottom out at 3/8 inch, which is perfect for panel grooves.

Comments about Mujingfang Rosewood Adjustable Plough Plane :

I needed a plough plane, but couldn't afford the Lie Nielsen. This little Chinese made plane fit the bill just right. It is well made, the rose wood seems very hard and sturdy, and the fence does not slip when planing a groove. It is a bit uncomfortable because of the fence rods, but I'm sure as I get used to using it I will have less problem. The irons seem well tempered, and hone up pretty well. I have only used it in soft wood so far, but will definitely use it in harder woods. A good plane for the hand worker at a good price. Nothin' fancy, but it does the job. Note: there is no knicker, so it will not do cross grain cuts.
