Chip Ejection Nozzle Diameter?

What's the diameter of the chip ejection port? Does it need an adapter for a 1-7/8" shop vac?
Asked by: Doresoom
The ports have an outside diameter of 1-1/2", so an adapter to 1-7/8" would indeed be necessary.

M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 3-1/4 in. Planer (Tool-Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage, base misalignment issues. I purchased my planer as part of a large kit and of all my stuff this is the absolute worst tool. I do high end carpentry and so I use my tools frequently but not as heavily as general domestic carpenters. I have returned 3 planes and had them replaced under warranty with the same issues. My current fourth one I haven't touched other than to check the base for alignment and find that it too is misaligned from the factory. The one critical 'feature' that all planers need is a solid and well aligned front and rear shoe and this is exactly what these planers lack. Features like the left and right chip ejection and the rear stand which can be retracted would be nice but are rendered useless if the planer doesn't work. Planer number 1; used it for less than a week before the front shoe became horribly misaligned and unuseable. Planer number 2; checked the base out of the box and found it was out of alignment. Attempted to make a pass and found cut out of square and snipe occuring badly. Also cut depth not matching the scale on the depth adjustment knob by 2 mm. Planer number 3; checked the base on opening the box, found it to be misaligned (in a different way to the last one). Back in the box without using and returned. Planer number 4; checked it out of the box and found it was misaligned and also the rear shoe was warped! Meaning it can't even really be calibrated. I'll return this one too but for now it's just sitting in a box. I am sick of driving back to the tool shop to be handed another dud and disgusted that these have not been recalled. I have used several brands of planer over the years and they have all worked better than this. I have only had to calibrate them after quite extensive trade use. Tradesmen... or anyone should expect better, especially with the price we pay for these tools

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready to use out of the box with my own... Ready to use out of the box with my own battery to power it of course. Very user friendly. At the push of a button you can direct the dust away from you. Setting the blade height is a breeze. Definitely 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For speed and a smooth finish This kit version (2623-21) includes: planer, two blades, charger, one M18 X C Red Lithium battery, bevel edge guide, contractor’s bag and a multi charger in which I can also charge my M12 tools. The planer has a 3-1/4″ cutting width with a 27/64″ max cutting depth and runs at a healthy speed of 14,000 RPMs. The 20 depth locking positions (0 to 5/64”) are very efficient, locks down tight and easy to set eliminating possible accidental changes in the depth control. The planer is 6.5 pounds with an added 1 LB for the battery. The select-able chip direction ejection is also a valuable asset which allows the user right or left option, depending on preference. For cleaner working a dust collector can be connected (not supplied) or in my case I connected a vacuum which is slightly more than the 1-1/2 inch diameter of the chip exit. It comes with an edge bevel guide and is easily fitted but for larger surfaces I found it much easier to use without it. My first attempt on an old door was a little short of a disaster as I ended up putting several gouges in the wood at the end of the run. This was my first time at using a power planer but even so, after about an hour of practicing with the speed and how much pressure to use, I was finally getting the hang of it and making clean and smooth perfect cuts. Next I tried a rabbit cut to the maximum of 27/64”. Absolutely perfect and I was now believing in my ability with my first power planer. The two reversible 3-1/4” double sided carbide blades certainly make the job both easier and efficient. With the power planer riding on a shoe plate with the 2 blades mounted on a cutter head, it removes wood equal between the front plate and the rear plate And so, summing up: The speed at which I pushed the planer and the depth setting I chose did affect the final smoothness of the work. I set the M18 planer to 1/16 in. each pass, with a maple door edge with outstanding results. The same result with Fir and pine. Next I tried planning some hardwood on settings of 1/16, 1/32 and 1/64 with also excellent results. This Milwaukee M18 Cordless cut all the woods both smooth and even and at no point did it bog down or lose any power. I continued to plane different woods at a depth1/16 of an inch, which included a forty feet of oak cuts for approx. a total of 300 feet before the battery started to fade. I did however give it 30 seconds to cool the tool after every 5 feet cut and then after every two cuts with no problems at all of overheating. With the battery, the tool weighs 7.5 lbs., but was impressed by the well balanced feel to it with both hands in line with the planer cut with easy control. The blades are easy to change with a supplied allen key which is fitted on to the tool. The kickstand is very useful for protecting the tool as well as the blades when laying down the planer. If not needed, the kickstand can be disabled by pushing it up and sliding it to the side, thus locking it from coming down. . Plus as soon as you release the trigger, the motor stops dead with no over running like other power planers making the safety of this tool even better. I own many hand planers that have and continue to serve me well but for speed and a beautiful finish, I cannot fault this M18 planer or for its’ run power. This is a very strong and sturdy tool that every carpenter/handyman should welcome into their tool box. The only cons I can find is that this kit does not come supplied with a wood chip catcher or at least with an attachable hose that fits on the end. Also I would like to see the edge bevel guide to be the same length of the planer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another awesome tool I bought this about a month ago. Never had a hand version before. Best part is I do have a lot of M18 batteries, so I could buy the tool only and save the money from the extra batteries and charger I don't need. It would be nice to have the case, but I have so many tools already, do I need another case? The tool seems slightly heavy at first, but after using it for a while, I forgot about the weight. Nice easy depth of cut adjustment and it goes pretty deep if you want it to. Blade replacement is fairly simple too. When working in the shop it's nice to have the option for dust collection hose too as it can get messy real fast without it.
