I got the planer and put it to work right away. I use it outside as there is a huge outflow of chips. I used it to clean up salvaged/reclaimed wood. The left/right chip ejector is much better than PORTER-CABLE's. It is sturdy and the blade are double sided and sharp.

The WEN 6530 was definitely our preferred Corded Electric Hand Planers. However, there were several other truly premium Corded Electric Hand Planers worth showcasing here that barely missed first place.

Next on our list is manufactured by PORTER-CABLE known to be a very credible tool brand. PORTER-CABLE's Electric Hand Planers are among their leading tools. It was fantastic to test the PC60THP. I was very pleased using this tool!

The model PC60THP Electric Hand Planer by PORTER-CABLE, at $67.99 is an especially great Electric Hand Planer for the price. If you not sure about our number one choice, I'd look into the PORTER-CABLE PC60THP next. It's a first class tool at a terrific price.

Besides the option we already covered, I would take a look at the PL1632 by Bosch and the DW680K by DEWALT. Both Bosch and DEWALT are considered a couple of the top suppliers of quality Electric Hand Planers. Both tools are highly rated also. The PL1632 advertises a user rating of 4.4/5 as contrasted against the 4.3/5 star rating given to the DW680K by DEWALT.

The PL1632 by Bosch has several features you might not experience on competing Electric Hand Planers. For example Powerful planer with 6.5 Amp rating and 16,500 RPM speed for fast stock removal and smooth finish in soft and hard woods. The DW680K by DEWALT although, is very competitive with The product is highly durable plus The product is easy to use.

This planer cut 1/8 inch swaths with no problem. So other people wouldn't have too much trouble handling it. I have mostly Bosch tools and none of them have failed. I tightened the 6 blade holding bolts a tad. Makes a mess even with the bag on but whatever

This is why I gave this Makita planner 4 rather than 5 stars. I reset the clamping plate using the alignment jig. 30 minutes of planing is around 30 gallons of chips. It's closer to the street than the house! Was amazed at how fast and effective this little Makita planer is
