Buck Bros. 14" jack Plane

This week-end my Porter-Cable 6” portable jointer burned up (sparks flying from the motor and tripped the circuit breaker) and I was in desperate need of something to flatten some boards. I have an old Stanely 4” smoother, but the boards are cupped and twisted, too much work for that one.

I bought this at Home Depot, and out of the box, it just didn’t plane boards. Now I’m not expecting Veritas quality for $35. But I’m not complaining here that the tool might have worked a little better, or been a little easier to use. Let’s set the bar low.
