Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 22, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement Blades 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. December 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not happy with it I was replacing all of the doors in my house so i needed a planer. The first few went fine but after the third one the blade is dull and guess what...Nobody sells the blades!!!!!!!! May 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skil 1560-01 Planer I bought this a couple of months ago and used it constantly doing a renovation that required planing door slabs to fit the openings. It worked great and I am very pleased, especially at the price I paid. September 15, 2013
