Comment:I found the title for this truly what I mean when I run a piece of wood threw this machine. It's totally an awesome wood working tool for being a so called portable planer. It's portable if you've lifted weights before but I like that it's heavy, that makes it very stable. It doesn't bounce around at all. For 92 lbs. it better not. It's loud yes, BUT only if you actually have no dust vac attached to it. I decided to hook up my 5 gal shop vac and then run it, well that dropped the noise level down dramatically. Don't use a shop vac cause it gets full too quickly when you run lots of boards threw mainly just for fun as my serious work will come when I get my jointer. Snip will always be there though I think. I placed the extension beds on the sides and it reduces the snip thickness by half or more but still is there no big deal to me. Just buz it quickly with my random orbital for final sanding and you're done. I'm no pro by any means and for the weekend garage wood worker I try to be it's perfect. If you're a pro then spend 2-3 times the money and get an actual floor model like the pros have. The planer knives do get dull but dust collection reduces that and avoid running stock threw in the same place all the time. If multiple pieces can fit threw at a time then do just that it will save time and wear. Best bet though would be to get a solid carbide knife set or the helical set that soon I'll be getting. If I had the money and 220V outlet yes I'd of just gotten the pro models that I've been drooling over but this is far more workable for me... for now that is. One thing I didn't do was level the infeed/outfeed tables as they seemed to though at slants reduce the snip once they were locked in place so I am leaving them the way they are. I LOVE the way that when you set the depth gauge stays put when you turn the wheel to the desired thickness then start planing, you don't have to lock down anything as it will stay in place without worry.

Best planner I have used.
Comment:I find that on the low feed speed that I get a very good finish.
I also found that a slight amount of up pressure as the board goes in the cutter and as it comes out of the cutter reduces snip. Dust and chips are almost non issue with this unit.

More than I expected
Comment:This planer has all the features that I was looking for to replace my impossible to get replacement knives ProTech. Besides being twice the machine I had, The price I paid at Factory Authorized Outlet was well below the in store prices anywhere around. And FREE SHIPPING! DUH. I will purchase all my future tools from you.

A Quality Purchase
Comment:I work mostly with hardwoods and the excellent results of the three blade cutter match the advertising of this unit. Im very glad I paid just a bit more to get a lot more quality. The extra blades and feed tables were a great bonus, as the feed tables are a must and my first blade change is covered.

Comment:I was very happy with the Planer. I did a good job surfacing the rough wood I had. I hope it continues to work as well long into the future.

Small in size but Big in performance
Comment:For the past few years I have been using a 24 Grizzly at a high school. Well after I retired I dont have the access to use it all the time so thought I would check out all the portables that would fit my needs. After reading all the reveiws this was the planer for me. I need to plane down boards so I can glue them up for lathe work. When you can plane down Oak and Walnut and come out with a finish smooth as glass you know you have made the right choice.

Great little machine
Comment:Unpacked the planer, snapped on the extension tables, installed the dust outlet, all in less than 20 minutes. Bolted it to the table,plugged it in and ran the first board. It was awesome. Terrific performer. Im really going to enjoy this tool.
