Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know I picked up a Kobalt Bench plane from lowes about 2 weeks ago. It's not the best smoother. Although after you flatten the sole and tune up the blade and frog it did take pretty decent shavings. However, I have better planes for smoothing, but I do not have a scrub plane…. So I went ahead and converted said Kobalt bench plane to a scrub plane. I have to say it works way better as a scrub plane. So for $25.99 + tax its not a bad deal.
