What are the MINIMUM length, width and thickness for boards being planed by the Makita 2012NB Thickness Planer?

Asked by: Woodguy
You can take strips of wood down to .5 mm BUT, you have to place it on a thicker and longer board first and run both through together. You know you have gotten to your limit when the piece you are planing disappears into the dust collector.
Answered by: Alex

Wher do you purchase the dust hood and how much does it cost.

Asked by: Tina
I got mine from Home Depot online, I have also seen them on Amazon. About $25 and in my opinion it should be included.

Ran a bunch of walnut through it, great results. Proper feed technique eliminates snipe. Even the tough grain didn't have tearout as long as the depth of the pass was not overly aggressive. Use it right, great results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine First of all this is my first planer but I've been doing woodworking for 10+ years. It does a decent job,fairly smooth with only a little bit of snipe if done correctly. There isn't much adjustability in the folding tables. They are fairly ridgid but not great. Speed isn't adjustable but does a decent job. Would be nice to slow it down abit when cutting through hard maple. There is no dust port, needs to be bought separately but installs with no tools which is great. Port needs to be taken off when not connected to a vacuum. The machine itself is solid and well built. Overall good product.

It’s also smoothed some small pieces of hard wood as well. It’s handled them with ease. And very, very smooth surface left afterwards. This unit will up the game of every project I work on after it’s purchase.

To be honest I haven't used it yet, but that doesn't mean I don't have something to complain about. Don't think that because you bought this thing you are done buying stuff to support it. Namely the dust collection part. Beyond the part you need to hook your hose up to, which for some strange reason is only 3", you will need a 3" hose, a blast gate and if you are using a dust collector, a 3" to 4" adaptor. It would be so much easier if they put a 4" opening on their dust collector adaptor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small machine I bought this machine about one month ago. Used few times and very happy with an outcome. The plane produces very smooth surface with a minimal or none snipe.
