Comment:I've only had this planer for a few weeks, but the cherry I've run though it still comes out as smooth as glass. So far I only have used the slow speed (which is plenty fast enough for the small lengths I'm using), and I only remove 1/32 at a pass to go easy on the blades. With my dust collector attached, the noise level is 1/3 less than without. The planer chip fan is very powerful. I bought this planer partly because you can get carbide blades for it when the HSS blades need replacement. This is a great planer for the hobby woodworker.

Comment:Heard good and bad on this planer. My thoughts are its great took it out of the box leveled the tables and ran wood. No snipe smooth finish. Happy camper!!!!. I had it hooked to my collection system and only had a dust pan of dust.

Comment:I've run over 60 Cedar and Redwood reclaimed fence boards through this planar with nothing but perfect outcomes. The only problem I have is that the floor plate is $180 to replace if it gets scratch. It would be nice if the polished plate could be replaced without the whole base to the unit. Sometimes I miss a very small rock when brushing off the product and it scratches the plate.

Best planer ever
Comment:As long as you support the boards on both sides you'll minimize snipe and almost eliminate it.

Comment:I read thru the reviews of this planer and can not add a word. I have not used it a lot yet but so far it is one of the best tools in my shop.

Dewalt did it right!
Comment:Bar none, this is the best thickness planer I have ever used, and as a finish contractor for over 20 years, I've used most of the others, both in and out of the shop. The first thing they did right was to use 3 blades. Now add a powerful 15A motor @ 10,000RPM and you get 96 cuts per inch on high feed speed (unlike Rigid's 13" that claims, "Super fine finish with 66 cuts per inch", and at the slower feed speed, gets 179 CPI. Now I can literally skip sanding and go straight to finishing. I also like that they added an exhaust fan; this completely minimizes the sawdust in and around the work area, ...far more than with just my dust collector attached. This is one sweet machine!

DeWalt 13'' 2-Sp Thickness Planer + In & Out Feed Ext Tables + 3 Extra Knives
Comment:I love this planer works great. Works better than some larger ones I've used. Spent a extra $100.00 on a sharpening system for the blades to extend the life of the blades . Just keep them honed and they will last for what seems like forever alot of work but well worth the savings

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.
