The machine has a V groove on the bottom for doing chamfers. Takes a while to get the scooping stroke down. I had never used a planer before so this was new to me. But there is a learning curve to removing and replacing them. Without this planer, I had no idea how to solve the problem.

The Bosch PL1632 was definitely our preferred Bosch Planers. With that said, there are a handful of other superb alternatives when it comes down to Bosch Planers. We have them for you here.

The next in our tool break down is made by Bosch which is a very reputable tool manufacturer. Bosch's Electric Hand Planers are no exception. It was great to test the GHO12V-08N. I was very happy with this tool!

The model GHO12V-08N Electric Hand Planer by Bosch, at $159.00 is a particularly exceptional Planer for the price. If you unsure about our top choice, I'd consider the Bosch GHO12V-08N next. It's a first class tool at a terrific price.

It is tackled some of the toughest jobs with these. So other people wouldn't have too much trouble handling it. Requires a vacuum hose to control the mess it makes. It's closer to the street than the house! It works great, particularly on irregular shapes.
