Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guildwoodguy RYOBI 3-1/4 inch Hand Planer - Good Value
I purchased the Ryobi 3-1/4 inch hand planer to refinish a tough piece of hard maple. It is easy to hold and use and adjustable to several thicknesses for ease of removing material. The sawdust bag is a bit small but it couldn't be made too much bigger without making the planer unweildy. Easy to empty the bag, though. This is a good product for any amateur woodworker who wants to get a good smooth finish on a carpentry job. Just a note: the materials that come with the hand planer recommend that it be used only for narrow pieces of wood, like the edges of doors. I have used it successfully for planing a large piece of maple that is about 23 inches wide. The results have been good.

I highly reccomend this planer! I was in the middle of home renovations, and I needed to plane a door easily and quickly (never planed a door before). I selected this planer following a review I read. IMPRESSIVE! I cannot compare with other brands but, from my perspective as an amateur DIY, this tool performed extremely well on my first job. Easy to set-up, easy to use, blade adjustments are very precise, and the shaving collection bag is a big plus for me. Highly reccomended. For the price, it does the job very well. All and all, this planer helped me to do a job like a pro would.

We purchased this product out of desparation for leveling our floor. 4 floor joists were higher than the rest there fore making it impossible to install hardwood floor. With all other avenues exhaused we purchased this unit. Man did it do the job! Fast and easy too. We had never used a planer before. Thanks to the previous reviews we chose well and now have a super level floor with far less effort than previously expected.. Excellant warranty too! We recommend this hand planer to anyone!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mathew Good Planer for the price!
I've done a couple projects now with this thing and I'm impressed! I guess the reason it's so cheap is because the body is made out of plastic, which so far hasn't been an issue. Bag fills up super fast, but that's with any half-decent planer. Comes with extra blades. Great value, blades leave no marks.

I bought this item to help with some home renovations that we are doing. It took a couple of practice trys but it was fairly easy to use and works well I would recommend this tool. I also like the warranty that the company as well as home depot offered on it.

I was skeptical as to whether this would work well considering its price. From the tests I've put it through, you get maximum bang for the buck with this unit. The price is right, and it really performs well. You can't go wrong...go for it!

I bought this planner because of the reviews and let me tell you they were 100 percent right. It even came with a nice case and an extra set of blades. I dont know how it compares to the big boys but for the money this cant be beat.
