Lee Valley - Scrub Plane (Rating: 5)

Wow! This is one of the best tools I have ever bought. I flattened a 6 foot cherry board in less time than it took me to take the plane out of the box.

This is the first scrub plane I have used so I don't have much to compare it to other than my no 4 Stanley I used to use. Some of the reviews I read indicate that weight may be a problem, but it is not very heavy and when I use it I never lift the plane off my work. The mass actually works to your advantage.
