125 Power Planer Review
This planer from Porter-Cable produces cuts that are accurate enough for immaculate finish work and fast enough for the roughest framing jobs
This superb planer’s cutting performance was accurate enough for immaculate finish work and fast enough for the roughest framing jobs. The tool has an ergonomic handle and a powerful motor, although it lacks a dust port. The standard fence made rabbeting and beveling a cinch, although the fence would have been even better if it included a degree scale and had knobs instead of tiny wing nuts. If it had dust collection capability and a slightly better fence, this would be the best all-around planer of those we tested. It is best used for general carpentry (framing or finish) and comes with a plastic carrying case.
