I once found myself up in Cupertino working on a project and I had forgotten to bring a plane. I went to the Home Depot and bought a Buck Brothers block plane for $39.00, thinking it couldn't be THAT bad. I was wrong, it was such a piece of crap that I couldn't even use it. Yet they are still selling them!

However, I have found that it does a great job at holding the door open when needed. Highly recommended!
