    Anyone every hear of "Truper" brand tools?

    So I was searching around for replacement plane blades on the cheap for a fore plane type deal that doesn't need to be real high quality. I found this brand going for less than $5.

    I've never heard of Truper, and for the price I doubt it's worth much, but has anyone used anything of theirs before?

    From what I could find on the net, looks like they are made in Mexico.....RUN, don't walk away.
    That which does not kill you will likely raise your insurance premiums.

    Who cares if they're made in mexico, at least they're made on the same continent.

    I was unaware that Truper was entering the woodworking tool market, or when they did.

    If it helps, I have a Truper brand shovel in my barn. I am impressed with it's resilience.

    As far as their planes go, I doubt they are worth much but I could be wrong.
