Tool Hound Video Review: Festool Planer
Festool claims to have reinvented the portable planer market. See what the Tool Hound thinks.
A portable power planer is probably not the first tool on your must-have list, but I guarantee that if you do enough carpentry you will soon be wishing for a power planer. This is the go-to tool for trimming extension jambs, rough-scribing panels, fitting and beveling door slabs, and for straightening framing lumber.
Now, I’ve been using the same inexpensive, bare-bones Makita planer for years, and though it may not be the most stream-lined tool, it gets the job done at a good price. Well, Festool claims to have reinvented the category with their new $400 EHL 65 E. In this video, we take a closer look at this new power planer from Festool and all of its features.
