Editor's Review: The Eight Best Power Planers

review date: September 1, 2003

This planer is an excellent all-around machine. Its cutting performance was impressive and yielded extremely smooth surfaces. The standard beveling fence was easy to set at various widths and angles. Dust collection was efficient, and the vacuum hose could be attached to either side of the tool. This planer comes in a sturdy case with plenty of room for the fence, wrench, and cord. It is best used for general carpentry (finish or framing).

pros:Simple blade-changing procedure, easy depth-control adjustment.

cons:Handle position not as ergonomic as other planers.
