Editor's Review: Tool Test: Benchtop Thickness Planers

by Roland Johnson

review date: December 1, 2007

This is a lightweight, entry-level, no-frills planer. No cutterhead lock and short tables are most likely the reasons for some exit snipe. Dust collection is fair on this machine. The planer leaves a good surface.
