First off, I’ll point out that I have nothing to compare this to. I have never used any other plow plane, and have little experience with any other kinds of joinery planes.
This is easy and fun to use. No tools are needed to do anything on this. Blade removal and all adjustments are toolless. The only thing I can think of to complain about is access to some of the knobs. I’d say I have average sized hands and fairly dexterous fingers. But I had trouble getting at the knobs well enough to loosen/tighten them at times. Nothing serious though.
There are six adjustment knobs on this plane. One knob tightens against the side of the blade to hold it tight against the plane body. The second knob is on the blade lever cap. Third knob is for blade depth adjustment. The other three knobs are on the right side of the plane. One is for the depth stop, and the last two are like router collets and control the fence.
