What are the MINIMUM length, width and thickness for boards being planed by the Makita 2012NB Thickness Planer?

Asked by: Anonymous
You can take strips of wood down to .5 mm BUT, you have to place it on a thicker and longer board first and run both through together. You know you have gotten to your limit when the piece you are planing disappears into the dust collector.

Wher do you purchase the dust hood and how much does it cost.

Asked by: Anonymous
I got mine from Home Depot online, I have also seen them on Amazon. About $25 and in my opinion it should be included.

Occasional snipe, but not bad. The only issue I've encountered is with hard woods such as teak and rosewood. The planer wouldn't push the wood through. I had to pull it. But the results were pretty good. Not perfect, but pretty good. Nice planer overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made machine The good: -Quite operation -Included folding in feed/out feed tables. -Very little snipe. 2-1/2 inches on the in feed, zero on the out feed for mine. Took about 15 seconds with 80 grit to clean it off. -Very smooth finish -Compact, and ready to go out of the box. The not so good: -The 3 inch, hard to find dust hood needs to be included. Finding adapters to fit it to your vacuum or D.E. will take some hunting. Overall I am very pleased with the performance of this machine and at about $60.00 less than the other top rated planer that begins with a 'D' and colored yellow, it's also a better buy. -Aaron
