Product Overview

Remember when you needed to smooth out those joists: plane away chips, splinters and misshaped edges with the WEN 6 Amp 3-1/4 in. Electric Hand Planer. Perfect for fixing stubborn doors and reshaping post edges. This power planer's 6 Amp motor delivers over 34,000 cuts per minute to your work piece, slicing away any irregularities until the surface of your boards are aligned and smooth. With a cutting width of 3-1/4 in. and a maximum cutting depth of 1/8 in. you'll have the perfect companion for preparing reclaimed wood back into perfectly useable boards. The 16 positive stops increase in increments of 1/128 in. anywhere from 0 all the way up to 1/8 in. The base plate shoe even includes a V-shaped groove for easily flattening sharp post corners. Aside from the power planer, this package also includes a dust bag, a rabbeting guide, a kickstand and a parallel fence bracket. The 5/16 in. rabbeting guide adjusts anywhere from 0 to 1 in. to allow for rabbets up to an inch deep in size. The parallel fence provides an accurate and straight cut by making sure your strokes are directly parallel to the edge of the wood (a must have for planning door edges, wood trim and boards). The kickstand protects both the blade and the work piece in between uses by keeping the blade elevated and out of contact from the surface of your project. Finally, the dust bag attaches to either side and collects all of your loose shavings to keep your work space clean and sawdust free.

  • 6 amp motor provides up to 34,000 cuts per minute
  • 16 positive stops adjust the cutting depth anywhere from 0 to 1/8 in.
  • Make rabbets up to 1 in. in size with the 5/16 in. rabbeting guide

Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use to sand dry wall

Asked by: dd
Absolutely not. The best way to sand dry wall is to use a damp sponge. I learned that in Fine Woodworking magazine about 20 years ago. No dust and perfectly smooth drywall. Get a large, rectangular sponge and a bucket of water. Wet the sponge, squeeze out enough water to keep it from dripping and "sand" the way you would with sandpaper. Periodically dip the sponge in the bucket to re-wet the sponge and to wash out the drywall powder. Zero dust and a great finish!!

If I were making some type of table top, would this be a good tool to straighten out board edges so that there is a nice snug fit?
Asked by: Trellany
It sounds as if you want to create smooth edges on the boards so that you can edge glue them to create a wider top. If that is your intention, then no, I would not recommend this tool. If you don't have a jointer, you can probably find a friend or a local shop that will run a joint for you. It is also possible to set up your router table for use as a jointer. But for edge gluing you need absolutely straight edges for the entire length of your boards. That will not be easy with this tool.

Could I use this planar to take 1/2" of material off my Birch butcher block Island countertop? it's 36" wide and I guessed I'd have to do several passes in small increments if it can be done at all.
Asked by: Ash
Ash, This is going to sound real dumb but a pound of dumb is worth a ton of ahah. Is the counter top real wood or laminate? If it is laminate you will wreck the counter top. If it is real wood, planner on. Remember that this planner is only so wide and you will have to go in straight lines to get the top even. I would try to invent a guide of some sort so you can go in straight lines and do a little bit at a time, not try to take the 1/2" off all at one time. I would almost bet that the planner will leave small lines and you should be able to take those out with a palm sander and if really bad a belt sander with a med to fine grit. Good Luck.

Would this work to smooth out rough cut lumber so it can be sanded smooth?

Asked by: Tom
yes but do not go too deep or you will be doing it over and over again to get all of board smooth.

As a beginner to woodworking, i found this product really easy to use for the jobs i am doing, i have used it to create butcher blocks and even bookcases, so far it has worked great. I tried a hand planer first, but being an amateur could not get it right, but this has solved that issue. I would recommend this to first time users for definitely.

It was heavy and a bit aggravating to set the depth on and no dust collection. "Enjoyed" it enough and sold it then bought this Wen planer. Today I used it for the first time. I had 20 risers to plane the end for to raise the roof on a metal carport. I had used my table saw to rip 2x4s to 2 1/8" then plane just the end. I locked each one in my Rockwell Jawhorse to give me my stability and was very surprised at the weight and ease of setting for this planer. I set it at 1/32" and dogged off each side of each riser to bring it down to fit in the metal standard of the carport. With the dust collection it was a real pleasure to use. Highly recommend this tool.....it is a pleasure and plenty of power

This is not the type of tool that most people would use on a regular basis, so why overpay. It is very easy to use and handles similar to a circular saw. The only negative is that the bag does not hold much and fills up quickly, but that will depend on how much planing is needed.
