Overview

Editor's Review: The Eight Best Power Planers

review date: September 1, 2003

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.
