You say you are new to hand planing so I ask if you know how to sharpen the blade.

My first plane like yours was a Buck Bros block plane from the orange place too. I bought it to trim the upper edge of a door that was binding. It chattered a lot even after I sharpened and resharpened it repeatedly. It took me six years before I learned how to sharpen a plane blade properly. I have better planes now but still use that first one I bought.
