Are the blades square enough to run boards through as a joiner? I am aware of snipe issues in running boards this direction but if you use longer board than needed you can cut off the ends.
Asked by: Junge61
No, but not for the square of the blades. The table is flat enough to plane, but not join. I tried it on redwood 2x6s and it didn't provide a flat surface. Had to track down a jointer on offerup. Hope that helps to

Customer Reviews

15 Amp 13 in. Corded Planer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from after about 1 year ownership... Still very happy. Ive read a lot of reviews here when researching this and other products, but I rarely write them. So i wanted to share some things that aren't being mentioned: 1- lookup a byrd shelix head. You can buy a replacement cutterhead to you can use a spiral cutterhead instead of the 3 knife cutterhead. It isn't cheap, but its an option. The knives can flip on this but they are not invincible. Nothing is. If you're running a lot of reclaimed and dirty wood through, they dull faster. Clean throughly, metal brush and then shop vac your rough stuff and use a metal detector on barnwood. And be prepared to dull blades quickly. I'd estimate 350 -500 BF (not linear foot) on nice clean stuff from specialty lumber yard. Running it conseratively on a good dust collector 4" (not a shop vac). And cleaned, metal free barnwood well less than half that. A lot of guys skip plane (1 pass) or hit or miss plane their barnwood and leave the roughness there. 2- clean the table, wax it, clean the rollers regularly. If its feeding poorly, clean the table with metal cleaner, and then use a nice paste wax like johnsons. This is crucial. It will make a bigger difference than you think. 3- buy the dewalt mobile base and wings. Totally worth it. Sometimes other large sites that being with A sell the package with thesefor less than home depot. HD may price match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best on the market by far this was a birthday/Christmas gift from my family. I could tell when I was unpacking it from the box this was a hefty machine. after just finishing my first project with it, I can now say that it was a fantastic choice. the two speed feature allowed me to avoid sanding almost anything, including mahogany. and the add on folding tables drastically reduces snipe. time will tell if the blades last. but so far, I can attest to the claim that this is the best porrable planer on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from World Class Planer I've owned this planer for the past year and i have to say it is the greatest tool ever! This tool has saved me thousands of dollars, literally! I purchase rough sawn lumber directly from my local mill and with this planer i can dress any kind of wood, softwood or hardwood for a fraction of what it costs to buy finished wood. The finish this planer produces is smooth as glass and in cases where the grain is straight, i don't even have to sand at all. That saves me hours of my time and the cost of sandpaper. The other feature i love about this planer is the no hassle knife setting. No jig is required to set the knives. They go in with no fuss. They are reversable too which makes them last twice as long. I've got the folding tables for it from Dewalt which makes for perfect planing. I haven't seen this planer snipe a board once. So far i've made an entire dining room set, chest of drawers and 3 huge desks and i planed 1200 square feet of my own hardwood flooring at home. The only thing that bothers me about this planer is that Home Depot doesn't sell the replacement knives. I have to buy them from the local Dewalt service center. I highly recommend this planer to anyone who takes pride in making their own quality custom woodworking projects wether it's a piece of furniture, floor or a new front door!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Planer for Professional Results I work primarily with rough-sawn lumber making a variety of custom furniture products. I purchased this planer in addition to a jointer to be able to work with high quality and highly figured rough sawn lumber. Working namely with Walnut, Maple, Cherry, Bubinga, and Lacewood, I have sent all of these woods through this planer with excellent results. The wings are an absolute must if you don't buy the X version, and given the weight of this unit, I highly recommend buying a mobile stand for the unit or permanently mounting it. This weight is a result of high quality and a robust unit. The fan on this unit is extremely powerful, no special dust collection required, I just have a vaccuum hose running off the chip ejection port straight into a garbage can with a filter installed in a cutout in the lid. The only downside to the unit is the straight blades, as soon as you hit a knot of decent size, you'll be left with very small lines left in future wood due to the blades hitting this knot, nothing some light sanding with 220 won't take out. other companies do make helical replacement cutter heads which I've yet to try but would solve this issue. There are several safety features built into the machine that prevent you from over feeding it or stop the the roller feed if you're trying to remove too much wood on wider stock, but this can be an issue as then the cutter will cause some snipe where it stopped; moral of the story is to know the hardness of your wood and don't try to take too much off in one pass. I hope to try the helical head in this unit soon and will update my review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine is a beast! DeWalt lives up to it's name again. This planer, for noncommercial equipment, is a good buy for the money. I have had a handful of planers throughout the years and this one works like a champ. The blades are easy to get to to change. The blower removes 90% of the chips as it goes through. In fact, it even provides so much force my dust collector hose relaxes when I turn the planer on. My favorite feature has to be what I call the "dial a depth". Rotate it to the desired depth, crank down the head and it repeatedly gives me the dimension every time. Well worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for 'Real' Hardwoods! The other reviews rave about all the benifits of this planner and for the most part I agree with the other reviews so I instead have focused on this products weeknesses. I do hardwood flooring so I was looking for a planner which was rugid enough for the shop but still portable so I could take it to the jobsite. The Dewalt seemed to ideally fit the bill. The weakness of this planner is that even on slow speed it overheats when planning 'real' hard woods like Hard Maple. Unless you give the planner time to cool between boards after about 50 board foot (6" Wide Boards) the cutter starts to overheat. It is not just the inconvience of the motor tripping out on overtemp on occassion but also the blades heat to the point of scorching the wood (which also leads to the blades prematurely loose their edge). This leads into the second problem. The blades not only can not be resharpened (this is due to the blades being custom blades made specially for this planer with allignment holes to make blade replacement easy), but they have to be purchased from Dewalt at about $100 a set. In addition, the 'quality' of the blades is middle of the line with regards to durability and Dewalt does not offer a 'harder' blade material which would solve the problem. What I ended up doing was buying generic top of the line cutter blades (which by the way only cost $45 per set) , then using the original blades as a template drilled allignment holes BUT this is not something that I would suggest everyone try as the hardened steel of better blades is VERY VERY difficult to drill... a task not recommended unless you know what you are doing. This 'problem' is avoided if you connect the unit up to a high CFM blower (in the shop I have a 1200 CFM dust collection system) which by increasing the airflow helps to cool the unit BUT this defeats the best feature of this unit... the built in dust collection blower. I have also used the Ridgid and have never found overheating to be a problem PLUS the Ridged uses generic blades (i.e. no allignment holes) so you can use better blades without any problems. Too bad the Ridgid is not designed to be more portable. To be fair, this is only a problem when working extremely hard woods. I did not experience it with softer woods including oak and walnut. Even with extremely hard woods when the weather was cooler (below about 16C like it is in the spring and fall) I found the overheating to be far less of a problem (it is also less of a problem with better blades which by staying sharper longer generate less heat).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The good and Bad of Dewalt planer The planer does cut very smoothly, and doesn't snipe boards unless there is a severe warp preexisting in the wood. The standard knives don't stay sharp when using on old wood (recycled) probably buying the carbide knives is the solution. The problem is that Home depo don't carry these replacement parts. The feed tables are good, but the extension tables make it even better. And always buy the sawdust collector attachment to prevent a mess. The one fault is the little stop knob on top of the verticle towers, they are made of plastic and break easily- but can be replaced with and ordinary washer. When planing the machine is very stable and doesn't rock or act high centered like some others on the market. I recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade from my old 2-blade model This unit is way better than my old De Walt 2-blade planer. The finish comes out smoooooooooth even on the fast-cut setting. And the fan-driven chip extractor delivers chips to the next county. Now I need a bag. No discernible snipe either, a real problem with the old unit. Some complain about weight, but lifting/placing it is a one-man job for me. Compare this unit to the entry level non-portable planers that weigh in at 600 lbs plus! I did make a stand w/ rollers on one end it for easy moving, yet stable. Seems to have plenty of power, but not sure how it compares to the 220 volt models. Big advantage of not having to wire in another 220 volt outlet.
