Anyone use an electric planer. Never had one so would like some advice on which one to buy. I want to mainly use it on reclaimed wood.
Performance Power planer at £26.99 from Screwfix should do the job. I have had mine for years.Anyone use an electric planer. Never had one so would like some advice on which one to buy. I want to mainly use it on reclaimed wood.
It's not just that, though that is a problem, especially on cheaper tools.it had an inherent problem, the adjustable sole plate at the front was not parallel to the rear plate caused problems
I too favoured the Makita but at the time the time the chip port worked only one way [none adjustable] thus it would have covered me with waste material -- now on later models it reverses as did the the Bosch at the time of purchase hence my choosing it.It's not just that, though that is a problem, especially on cheaper tools.
The real problem and design flaw with putting the adjuster on where it is, is it doubles as the forward handle, and it is inevitable when you hold onto that handle, you may inadvertently change the depth of cut.
My choice would be Makita.
Really? I am surprised anyone would use a plane (hand plane or electric) to take an inch off anything. I would certainly reach for a saw for a task like that.Presuming you've got close to an inch to take off, otherwise I think by hand would be faster, from the get go ...
