    Comments about Stanley SW No 92 Shoulder Chisel Plane :

    I experienced same problems as captain Greg. The sole on the right side of the mouth plate had a gap where I could slide a .001 thickness gauge, however the left side was flush with the sole on the body end, what would be the Chisel plane. When I orderd mine, the woodcraft store had bought a total of 4 of these and all 4 had same issues.

    Comments about Stanley SW No 92 Shoulder Chisel Plane :

    Bought this on sale for something <$100, which is a relatively good deal. Had no trouble with the cutter-securing screw or with the screw that holds the bullnose section onto the chisel plane, per previous reviews; maybe I'm fortunate. If you are not familiar with the design, see others' notes on the importance of keeping the bevel perfectly square, and the limitations of the mouth opening. If you bear those things in mind, it works pretty well, and just as intended. The problem -- as noted in FWW's review, and why I gave low marks for quality -- is that the edges of the body are so sharp that more than a few passes with it will cause hand injuries. Seriously. I was able to fix this with about 90 minutes of serious elbow-grease work with a sanding block (followed by some extra-fine finish sanding to restore the original brushed appearance), but this seems to be beyond what is called for, and an utterly stupid problem on Stanley's part. Don't they have people actually try their stuff?

    Comments about Stanley SW No 92 Shoulder Chisel Plane :

    I purchased a Stanley 092 Shoulder plane at the local Woodcraft store. I based the decision to buy on price. In this case the old adage "what you pay is what you get" held true. In trying to adjust the blade I found the blade adjustment screw to be bent so badly that it was unusable. Returned the plane to the store and they ordered me another one. When that one came in I found on inspection that the blade clamp screw had no screw driver slot and the nose piece did not line up with the base. Fortunately we still had the original. By picking and piecing the two planes we built what appeared to be a usable tool. After sharpening the blade (a major operation since it was not even close to flat) I found that one side cut much deeper that the other. Although the sides and bottom were square, the blade rest was apparently not square with the base causing the blade to be cocked sideways. Since the plane was what it appeared to be, junk, I returned it and spent the extra money for a Veritas.

    Comments about Stanley SW No 92 Shoulder Chisel Plane :

    I went to the local Woodcraft looking for a rabbit plane and this was the best solution. The overall finish is good no machine marks blade square to the body so i bought it. Once i started using it the problem list grew fast. The lever cap is machined too lose and doesn't stay square to the body. You can not adjust the mouth opening for a light shaving. The other problem is that when you push the plane it opens the mouth. I was using it on a hardwood, but it still it should keep a tight mouth. The chisel part of the plane is just as bad. I am going to try to return. Unfortunately Stanley put the SW stamp on it and what once was a great trade mark in a era of great tools Stanley ruined it.

    The only negative with this tool is that you cannot close up the throat for a very fine cut. Front section cannot be moved far enough back without modifying the tool

    Comments about Stanley SW No 92 Shoulder Chisel Plane :

    I have been looking to buy a shoulder plane for some time and was overloaded with reviews, opinions, blogs, etc. about the quality of these planes. I decided to take a chance and buy the Stanley. It arrived [...] and I put it to work right out of the box tuning tongues on some highly figured quarter sawn white oak that I was tongue and grooving for a blanket chest. The plane performed beautifully, allowing me to take off fine shavings to get the thickness of the tongues just right. I am glad the plane is performing so well. I have not used any of the higher priced "premium" planes on the market so I can't make any comparison to them. However, I can say that the Stanley didn't diminish any results that my skills and abilities have allowed me to get so far. For me, its a great tool and I have enjoyed using it.
