Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy I really like this planner, I've used it for over a year.
I really like this planner, I've used it for over a year, until I damaged the blades from nail and screw heads in the sub floor. After researching where to find the replacement blades. Finally found that Home Depot carries them in Makita brand- part # D-46246, Skil needs to add this info to their web site.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMAC Really nice tool for the price
Belt broke on my old Craftsman Planer and replacement part was stupidly expensive. I don't use a planer very often but they are great to have. Did some shopping and found this unit on sale at Home Depot on line. Price was moderate. Ordered and picked it up at the local store which is very convenient. Was surprised at the quality. My old Craftsman was like a toy compared to this unit. Used it to plane 3 doors that day and loved the power and the depth dial was really accurate. For anyone who doesn't need a planer everyday, you can't go wrong with this model.

I am very disappointed with the planer . The device worked less than 10 minutes and stopped working suddenly when he was going to smell like burnt .
Please treat it quickly

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TxRick2007 Great Deal
I have had mine for over a year now and I got this due to I needed it for the front door and the back door. I picked this due to a few reason, one was the price along with the blades are the same as the Bosch. I was very pleased with right out of the box it worked great and I was very happy to see how great of the job it did for me. I have found it to be a handy tool that I use in my woodworking. Been over a year and I have yet to replace the blades. Also I have found that the blades can be reshaped and being I am able to do that for the 3rd of the price for new blades I now have a new set ready to use when the time comes to put new set on and get the ones I took off reworked to be ready when I need them. Great Price, Great Working Tool, Worth The Money, Does A Great Job and I would be glad to tell anyone that this is a Great Tool.

I bought this product about a year and a half ago, Its worked great, however, the blades recently chipped/broke and NO ONE sells the replacement blades for it, so for now this tool is useless to me until I can find a blade to fit it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buckshot Great Planer for the price.
I have used this planer in my log sign business to create a smooth surface on logs after they have been milled into slabs with a chainsaw. Needless to say I start with a very rough surface. I've attached a pic so you can see what logs I smooth with this planer. This little planer does a good job in giving me a smooth surface to work off of. Easy adjustment at your finger tips. Flipping blades is also easy. Matter of fact I like it so much I had purchased another for a back up, its still in its box as this one is still going strong.
