The planer was ready out of the case to use. I purchased this tool to plane floor joists in my master bedroom. I replaced a 2x8 with a 2x10 and needed to trim some off the top. the planer was a gigantic help, it was very easy to adjust the cutting depth and cuts very smooth.

This is an excellent power hand tool. It is lightweight and well-balanced. The front-mounted cutting depth control knob is convenient and adjustment is quick and precise. The planer leaves a smooth surface that needs minimal sanding. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Very nice tool
I rehab houses that are often 100 plus years old. A common problem, when these older houses begin to sag, is that the doors no longer sit in the jambs properly. The proper way to correct this is to jack up the house and install support columns so everything is plumb and level but in some cases this is just not feasible. A quick fix is to plane a little off the offending door edges. For years I used a cheapy Black & Decker power plane but it's time to retire it. This DeWalt plane is quite a bit heavier but it really eats wood.
Be sure to inspect the surface for nails, screws and staples which will quickly destroy your blades. Very nice product.

Outstanding tool. I have used hand planers for the better part of twenty years, and this product has changed everything. I only grab the hand planer for small jobs, this tool does a great job and keep a uniform cut all the way across.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FussierThanMost Disappointing flaw
I bought this planer in spite of reading a review elsewhere in which the customer complained about the guide plates not being on parallel planes. I found that the front plate was very loose in the body and could be swiveled to the left or right, and would stay in random positions. If I made several passes on an edge, it could end up with an extreme taper. If I planed a flat board, it would cut .020" on one side, and nothing on the other. It's too bad it has this manufacturing defect because it's an extremely nice tool to use otherwise. They refunded my money, and I bought another brand.

easy to use! comes in a box w/ metal guide. I've no complaints! I tried using it to plane boards but it takes too long and requires skill to get truly flat and even. I also have a giant dewalt planer that I use to flatten boards and use this tool for touch ups and planing/truing the sides. Still glad I got it.

Works great! Would be nice if the chip bag came with it.
