Wooden planes are a sweet deal if you don't mind messing with them. This is a Ryuma "rabbet mouth groove plane" which was $30.
I had to spend about an hour and a half total on both the blade and body, and glue in two paper shims.
If you're thinking negatively of the wimpy cross-grain shavings:
- I sentence you to three years of power plane use in a production environment
- Yes, it cuts with the grain too
I bought it from Tools From Japan. Takes a long time to ship but customer service is top notch.
