      I've wanted a power planer to use on material too bulky to run through my jointer. This one fits the ticket. It comes with blades preinstalled, a blade installation gauge and wrench, an edge guide for rabbiting, all in a nice plastic case. The blades are carbide and reversible, so they should last a while. It has a V groove in the front base plate as a guide when chamfering edges and the depth is adjustable in 1/256" increments. The hand grip is comfortable and secure. I especially like the spring loaded "kickstand" at the rear to keep from dinging the blads when the planer is set down. Out of the box, set at 3/32" it didn't remove any material. I checked the blade adjustment and it was OK. I finally figured out that the depth adjustment knob doesn't have any stops and had been unscrewed a turn too far. Once I got started planing, the resulting wood surface was nice and smooth. The chips were thrown several feet to the side and forward a little. Since I don't have any of the chip collection accessories yet, I'll be doing my planing outside. I was disappointed to find that the manual lists a number of accessories, but doesn't give any part numbers, making it harder to locate the correct parts.

      Pros Good Size & Weight, kickstand protects blades, comfortable to use, precise depth setting Cons vacuum attachment not included
