I weighed the option of buying a vintage Stanley 151 spokeshave and this modern production of the 151 as a 12-951. I opted for the new production simply because of cost and my understanding that every plane regardless of new or old requires tuning and time to setup properly. Had I been able to find a vintage 151 shipped to my door for under 15 bucks I would have certainly bought that instead...but that just was not the case.
This 12-951 performed to my expectation out of the package. I then sharpened the blade to my preference and adjusted it to my feel and loved it even more...so exactly what I expected to do. Simply put, this product does what it is supposed to and seems like it will stand the test of time in the same way as the original production of the 151.
