What is the apron plane used for?
The apron plane is used for all sort of small jobs throughout the creation of a piece. Its small that it fits on your working apron (or pocket) so you can always have it handy. It can be used to adjust edges and even to shave off small peaks on a board. It can also be used to make chamfers and it is particularly useful to remove very fine, spot shavings to ensure perfect fit when putting to parts together.
The Luban brand is manufactured by the Qiangsheng Tool Company, also known as Quangsheng, who are well known for producing very high-quality tools (including the well-regarded Wood River).
Since its market debut, the Luban brand has created a stir with its wonderful combination of high-quality products (at par with established premium brands) and affordable prices.
