Using Planer Reviews To Find Your Tool

Woodworking projects are fun and relaxing. Using planer reviews to decide which tool to buy can be very helpful. You want to choose the product that will work for you for a long time so you want to be sure you are buying quality. When you pick one that will work for a variety of things you will put yourself ahead in the long run.

A variety of tasks can be performed with electric planers that sit on a bench. Some models and brands are better than others, but you want to make sure you stay within your budget. If you do not use the tool frequently you can probably select a lower priced model that will work just fine.

These tools are intended to smooth the surface of the wood by removing a thin strip. They cut into the surface and take a uniform sized piece off leaving a smooth place behind. When doing woodworking projects of any kind, these are very helpful.

In addition they can be useful for smoothing out rough patches on the wood. For large projects they will reduce the amount of sanding you will have to do by hand. It is important to keep in mind that these are intended for large areas, so smaller corners will need to be smoothed by hand.

The price range is dramatic on these for various models. It will be a selection that is based on your needs and the budget you have planned for this tool. As mentioned earlier, if you do not use the tool often you can probably get a lower priced model that will suit you fine.

This tool is intended for use on a bench top, not as a hand tool exactly. They are electric powered and will require an electrical outlet close by. With any tools of this nature it is best not to use an extension cord if you can avoid it.

For those looking for a good planer, we would like to point you towards the Bosch planer, which is going to help you complete that job.

Steven asks…

what power tools do you recommend?

I’m new at buying tools and I usually borrow but now I’d like to buy my own. I really love carpentry and I plan to do quite a bit of projects once I have power tools. I’de like to start out by buying a circular saw and a drill. what brands and types do you recomend that are not to expensive, will do a good job, and will last a pretty long time? and if you can, which brands and types should I stay away from?

Dusty answers:

CRAFTSMEN SUCK ! (they don’t have lifetime warr on power tools, YOU have to buy extended warr)
it really depends on what you define as expensive ? Also don’t get offended, but make sure you try them with batt installed, they tend to get pretty heavy for most women after a while, dewalt,porter cable,bosch,milwaukee all sell a great 5 piece package pack that includes pretty much everything you need. Its about $450 – $650..all great. Ryobi makes a decent set for your home, a lot less expensive and lighter in weight, i think you may like that brand.. The others are used by contractor (my power tools are porter cable my drill weighs over 6lbs just to give you an idea) all those are cordless too, feel free to email me if you have any more questions..

Ken asks…

How can I learn about carpentry?

I want to learn how to become a carpenter but I’m stuck in an apartment without space to use tools or a way to get to the local Carpenter’s Union training center. Is there a book or website that a complete beginner can read or use to learn even the basics of carpentry?

I’d really appreciate any helps or links! Thanks!

Dusty answers:

Get a job with a construction company as a laborer. You will start out carrying stuff and holding the dumb end of the tape measure/board or whatever, but if you pay attention, you will learn, and eventually get to do more and more stuff. Also, there are all kinds of trade magazines that have valuable information. The libraries are full of do it yourself books too.
