Rated 5 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Priest 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!!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â 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 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 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.
