Amazon reviewers give the Makita 2012NB 12-inch planer a 4.8 out of 5 from 194 reviewers. One 5 star reviewer writes “This planer is excellent, giving both reliable service with new features. No cutter head lock to worry about, higher RPM than the old planer, and beefed up to 15-amps. The Makita has on-board storage, for tools, generous infeed & outfeed trays, and is truly lighter than the rest. It also has powerful and extremely smooth finishes. Popular Woodworking lists it as snipe equal to that of a floor model, best of the benchtops. I agree!” Generally, PORTER-CABLE PC60THP has nice capabilities for efficient work, but we would like to highlight a few features that make its use easier. Let's start with the bag for collection of chips. This accessory will be appreciated by those who like to keep their workplace tidy. The planer is designed so that you can attach this bag to either left or right side. Yet, you should consider that a planing generates lots of dust and shavings, which can clog the tool and the bag pretty quickly. Hence, we recommend you to clean the unit with a vacuum using the included vac adaptor, particularly after a long-time planing. The manufacturer also provided this portable hand planer with a kit bag to carry and store the tool in a convenient way. To sum up, we can state that PORTER-CABLE PC60THP is an user-friendly, simple-to-use and affordable hand planer that can become your best assistant.

The Truth About Planer Snipe

With the TotalBoat Sport Dory done and waiting for a nice fall day to show off her rowing prowess (next week!), Lou is back at the workbench, but this time he’s making some adjustments and showing us how it’s done on a brand new Ryobi Planer. The electric planer is a staple in Lou’s toolbox, and having it set up correctly is paramount to using it successfully. It’s a powerful tool which means things can go wrong quickly and make more work for you, instead of less. Tune in and watch Lou fine-tune this important piece of equipment in his arsenal of best hand planer 2019. That sounds like a lot of work to me David. If I were purchasing my tools for the first time, I’d find it much more useful to own a planer first. I would have every intention of purchasing a jointer in the future, for the ultimate stock prep solution. But in the interim, I could buy the flattest boards I could find and have a quick and easy way to get my stock to the needed thickness. I could then use the router or tablesaw to joint the edges. While this requires more attention to stock selection, I find it to be far less labor intensive and far more functional than buying a jointer first. Again, I think we can all agree that it’s really the combination of the jointer and planer that makes the magic happen. But for folks who only have the budget to get one at a time, I think the planer would offer more useful functionality. Just my opinion. :)
