CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the Price The original Infeed and out feed tables are not real stable. I was having problems with snipe. I adjusted the tables just as the directions said and I was still having the same problem. I payed very close attention to the boards as they passed through and I noticed that the middle of the tables were bowing because of the lack of support. So I took a 2x4 and a piece of 1/4 ply and rigged up my own. Now I have little to no snipe. It's a great thicknesser for the money! I have used it a lot mainly red oak. I flipped the blades just to see how easy they are to change/reverse. Very easy. Great product if you don't mind fixing it up a little. Of coarse it smooths the wood great if you only make shallow passes, but what do you expect for the price. Now I'm working on a permanent station for it's place in my shop. September 25, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OK but Cheap blades This planer is a good one for the money, though I would not recommend it for anyone serious about woodworking. If you are man-cave/hobby type, this planer is probably more than adequate. The trouble for me in my shop is that the blades are just too cheap. They are thin and will chip if you run anything exceptionally hard through it. Overall I am not - unhappy - with this planer, though I am in the market for one that is more durable. June 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good planer for the money. Prior to purchasing this unit I spent several hours reviewing online reviews and forums, checking out various manufacturers, web sites, etc. Also, I work in a small custom woodworking shop by day building custom cabinets, entertainment centers, etc. I decided on this unit based upon this research and also because of the price (I wanted the helical cutters in the 40300H), but I was pleasantly surprised. The boards come out really smooth and it is not as noisy as I was expecting it to be (important in the modern suburb where neighbors are as little as 20 ft away). Dust collection is adequate using a shop vac, so I expect this will improve when I upgrade my dust collection system. October 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, good quality Works great right out of the box. Product quality is obvious. Have not tested it under heavy use yet, or changed blades, but impressed so far. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Positive reviews have it right! Excellent value balance of quality and low cost. Solidly built, easy to set up, very minimal to nonexistent snipe. Doesn't do the greatest job of capturing all chips/shavings in vacuum hookup, but no complaints at all otherwise. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One Sweet Deal My old planer recently conked out on me in the middle of a project and I needed a new one fast. I was frustrated at first. Living in a small town, the tool availability is limited at Home Depot and elsewhere. Then I saw the online free shipping. Not having a lot to spend, I looked at a lot of options before settling on the Steel City. Are there better planers out there? Absolutely. If you're willing and able to pay a fortune. But as far as I'm concerned, you won't find a better deal at this price. Easy to set up and after taking the time to carefully level out the infeed and outfeed tables, I haven't seen any noticeable snipe. So far I've ran curly Maple, Walnut, Cherry and Yellow Pine through it, Smooth as silk. Better planer for the money? Show me. Did I mention free shipping? March 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this product is great i ordered this planer it comes with a 2 1/2 and 4" dust shut. i unpacked it all the parts were there only a couple thu. i checked the in feed and out feed tables and they were level from the factory. i run some stock thru it and have no snipe. this is a great planer even if it had cost more. you cant beat the price thu. fast shipping i hade this planer in a couple of days. last thing this planer is made in taiwan. October 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great unit Have run cherry, tupelo gum, old fire hardened bourbon barrel staves thru and it works fantastic. If you have a lot of money go buy a more expensive unit so you can brag I just spent 1200. dollars on a new planner. November 10, 2013
