Andy I have Three now I was looking for a thicker blade for my record smoother & foud one for about £90 then I saw this Quangshen on Workshop heaven site about £69 at the time I couldn’t believe how good it was for the money,came in a wooden box & cut beautifully straight out of the box I honed it & now it’s a dream to use, like silk & it was perfectly square & flat. I have the low angle rebating block plane which I find a bit of a fiddle to set the blade & keep it square but when set works well & a low angle block plane which is great & on offer from rutlands at £39.95 I have a Lie Nielson bronze block plane & they work every bit as well as that at a third of the price. Definitely worth a look,as for rust all cast iron will rust just a little cammila oil & wax takes care of it but that’s just maintenance
