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.

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.

15 Amp 12 in. Corded Compact Portable Planer with Interna-Lok Automated Head Clamp, and Blade Set is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product would get 5 stars if the manual that accompanied it was useful. I've had the product... This product would get 5 stars if the manual that accompanied it was useful. I've had the product for 2 weeks and it has exceeded my expectations on the ease of use and high quality planning. I bought it because my research found it had the least amount of "snipe" at the ends of the board. I was not disappointed. No snipe at all. Planer does have somewhat flimsy and hard to adjust in feed and out feed tables but this did not take away from performance. Also I would like to complement Home Depot on prompt shipment to my home.and a very easy to use ordering web site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine So far so good. The machine was shipped very quickly and arrived in excellent condition. I do NOT have a lot of experience with planers (so take my comments with the appropriate grain of salt), but the machine works well, and does the job with virtually no pitting and a surprisingly acceptable noise level. There were several less expensive options, but I read several online reviews that recommended this model based on quality, noise and blade life, and I didn't want to try to go cheap only to be disappointed. The attached fold out feed shelves (for the lack of an appropriate technical term) are a nice built in add on that would have been a separate purchase on other machines. They make the work much easier. I mounted the machine on a spare stand, and would recommend others consider doing the same or building a sturdy stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made machine The good: -Quite operation -Included folding in feed/out feed tables. -Very little snipe. 2-1/2 inches on the in feed, zero on the out feed for mine. Took about 15 seconds with 80 grit to clean it off. -Very smooth finish -Compact, and ready to go out of the box. The not so good: -The 3 inch, hard to find dust hood needs to be included. Finding adapters to fit it to your vacuum or D.E. will take some hunting. Overall I am very pleased with the performance of this machine and at about $60.00 less than the other top rated planer that begins with a 'D' and colored yellow, it's also a better buy. -Aaron

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic tool My old Jet 12" planar had just quit working. I read several online reviews and this one got outstanding marks. I have bought many other Makita tools and they were always great. However, this planar seems to be the best. The boards are *REALLY* smooth. Snipe is very minimal, much less than professional/big planars. The cut is so smooth it looks like it has been sanded. I have been working with African Mahogony (pretty soft) which is prone to tear-out, but this planar almost doesn't tear anything out. It is really an outstanding planar. Definitely worth the money. I should have bought it years ago! The controls and overall design are very well thought out. Though fairly heavy, the design allows you to carry it with both hands, so it isn't difficult. I have only used it a few times so far, but it is way ahead of my original Jet planar ever was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I've owned and used a Delta 12" Planer for over 15 years. I considered getting another Delta but when I did an extensive search from the big boy Jet 15" stationary to the best portable that Dewalt makes- I decided the reviews favored a Makita. I'm not disappointed. I ran my rough cherry through and it didn't grunt, burn or need a lot of sanding. There was a bit of snipe on long boards but not the amount I was getting with the Delta. I am a bit perplexed that a unit @ 10 years old still sells for over $500. This unit is new, yes as far as never used but it wasn't manufactured after 2010 like many of the portable units on the market today. Apparently Makita DOES sell a more updated unit but this one sold by Home Depot is the older model. I say that as a means of clarification but please don't misunderstand the unit itself IS great and a TWO blade not a three blade unit (which in the long run is cheaper as far as upkeep). Some blades on the portable units are only one sided or they cost over $50 a set. These blades are two sided so when (in the middle of a project) you see that the blades need changed, all you have to do is flip them over. It's good to have an extra set on hand for when you've already used both sides. Bottomline- I recommend this unit. It's sturdier than my Delta, gives a better finish, less snipe, more features especially for volume projects that require several boards at the same thickness (takes away the guess work).
