Cool tool, planing through wood beautifully. I've already given one of my other two power planers away. I had never used a planer before so this was new to me. The carry case is sturdy and an extra blade is included. With it over a standard run through planer.

The WEN 6530 was our preferred Corded Planers. Having said that, there were several other really premium quality Corded Planers we wanted to showcase here that barely fell short.

I got the planer and put it to work right away. So other people wouldn't have too much trouble handling it. I haven't had any issues thus far with the tool. I couldn't believe how perfect this Bosch was for the job. It seems to suck nearly all of the sawdust.

I've only used this a handful of times and have been pleased. I reset the clamping plate using the alignment jig. It was way to uneven to install composite decking. The instruction can be improved with more picture. I've been ruined by the Makita Planer!

It is tackled some of the toughest jobs with these. I reset the clamping plate using the alignment jig. Yes, this quickly filled, but it was better than nothing. I couldn't believe how perfect this TACKLIFE was for the job. For working with soft woods, this is a decent planer.

I do like the portability and ease of use. Also the damn safety buttons are a total deal breaker. 30 minutes of planing is around 30 gallons of chips. I couldn't believe how perfect this Makita was for the job. Makes a mess even with the bag on but whatever

Cool tool, planing through wood beautifully. If you only used a crude hand plane you can use this. Replacement blades were not for the 312 as implied. You do not have to be an NFL linebacker to use this. A little heavier than the BLACK+DECKER I used to use.

I got the planer and put it to work right away. I use it outside as there is a huge outflow of chips. Very impressed with this tool, you will be too! I wish the did include a collection bag, that's one big con. I can't imagine how long the sander would have taken.

Power is adequate for fresh cut oak rough planks. It requires some skill to not run of the edge and dig. Worked as advertised right out of the box. A solid planer and is more suited for larger timbers. I've been ruined by the Triton Planer!
