'Rider' #6 Fore plane
Probably the most bang for your buck out of any bench plane, Rider planes have everything you could want and with a price point right at the sweet spot. The plane body is ribbed so it's strong and rigid. The frog sits into a machined face on the bed and locks into place with two screws. This positive positioning helps prevent chattering. The cut iron is high carbon steel, hardened and tempered for accuracy and uniformity. Handle and knob are solid hardwood. This is the #6 traditional Fore plane.
