Questions & Answers

Does planer come with stand

Asked by: jim
No, this is a bench top planer. While you can build or purchase a stand for it with relative ease. It works well on a work bench using bench dogs to keep it from slipping.

Could I use this to square up a 5-8 inch thick log (about 4 ft long)?

I have some Russian Olive branches that have been drying for about 2 years. I want to make something out of the wood but need to square it so that I can cut it on a table saw.
Asked by: Paul
Your best bet would be to split or saw the log in half and run it over a jointer until you have a straight flat side. Use a band saw to cut the long edges about a half inch wider that you want. Use the jointer to straighten out one of the long ends and then cut the other end to width with a table saw. You will now have it squared up on three sided. Using the table saw you can rough cut the remaining side to within a quarter inch and then finish it up on the planer.

It dose come with the cutting blades right, when I went to order online it looked like you had to purchase them also.

Asked by: HillBilly
Yes, It does com out of the box ready to work. The only items that you have to assemble are the dust chute, the safety key, and the depth adjustment handle on top. After that your ready to work.

13 in. Thickness Corded Planer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 519.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Second time to the repair shop in 5 months This machine started out great, planing boards smooth without any marks left. But after 3 months of use, (on soft woods like aspen,pine,and cedar) I had to send it to the repair shop which had it for one month. The diagnosis was that the bearings were worn. I have had the unit back about a month and a half and now the some problem seems to be happening. I am fed up. I used to think you could not go wrong with a Rigid tool but I am proven wrong. My plan of attack is to contact both Rigid and Home Depot and see what my options are. If you are planning to purchase this item, please rethink it and spend a little more money and purchase a better unit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding shop tool After many reviews on other planers and careful consideration, I have come the conclusion that this planer best fits my needs and out performs my Delta. The set adjustment on the side allows me to set a certain depth limit and I can plane down to that measurement and it can not go down any further. I planed five 1 1/4" rough cut red oak down to 5/8" with no problem. I hooked up the dust collection port to my dust collection. I didn't need a mask and broom to clean up a mess. The gauge for depth is right on the mark. I mic'd the thickness and it was right on. Ridgid has a planer that is very hard to beat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great price, but you get what you pay for. First unit, picked up in mid November, lasted less than a week. Sounded as if the bearings were failing, or something was misaligned. I had already started the project, so time was of the essence. Swapped it in for #2. It lasted a while longer, but did not seem to cut at the same speed. Bogged down on pine. Attributed to dull blades. Today, the lift mechanism failed. Seems the set screws backed out and were lost. Unit #3 was picked-up this morning. It has a defective cutting head. The boards are scored as they pass through the unit. #3 cuts better than the other two by far, but I can't have this line in the middle of the work. #4 tonight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've bought 2 and both are lemons I bought the 1st planer because a friend had one, and I thought he was pleased with it. Used it for about 10 hours and it had some kind of internal failure. Called hotline, checked all possible easy fixes, nothing. Took it to service center to be repaired, but time restraints caused me to buy another one. Took it out of the box and ran for MAYBE 15 minutes, long enough to get almost 1 gallon of shavings of pine taking 1/32" at a time. Planer started a clicking sound and board stopped moving. Turned planer off and checked, rollers not turning. Called hotline, was told it sounds like internal failure. Taking it back to get money back, will try a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orange vs. Yellow During my search for a thickness planer I did quite a bit of research. I had always been a "yellow" tool guy, and initially was leaning toward yellow. The more I read, and spoke with other diy woodworkers I realized that while the heavy duty Yellow model was indeed superior, it wasn't because it performed better than the Ridgid. The Ridgid planer puts out the same quality of product as the $650 yellow model. The yellow model just had a couple unnecessary frills, oh and a much heftier price tag. In my opinion, and as I said before I have yellow tendencies, this Ridgid planer is awesome! Could not be happier with my decision. Don't spend $300 more for no reason

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Built I have been using this planer for 6 months now and overall I am very happy with my purchase. It is well built and priced below other brands of comparable features. I love both the "indi-cut" and "repeat a cut" feature. When planing 10 or 12" wide hardwood such as oak it seems to bog down a bit, even if only taking off 1/16th inch, but it does get through it. My only concern is that it leaves about 3" of snipe on the trailing end that I have not been able to adjust out. However from what I hear from talking with other people this is something that applies to almost all planers and you just learn to leave enough stock to trim off when you are done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to take one back The first one I bought, I spent about an hour adjusting one of the table extensions to make it absolutely perfect which they don't exactly make it easy to do by yourself. When I got to the other side, the hole that was machined into the side of the extension was completely off. There was no way to get the extension flat with the table. I called ridgid and explained what was going on and they "said" they have never heard of that happening. I took it back and exchanged it for another one and it was perfect right out of the box. At first I had a little snipe in shorter boards, I know weird, but after tweaking it a touch I get perfect boards all the time now!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from seems great so far, aside from trouble clearing shavings This is my first planer. I bought it about a month ago because it was almost half off (making room for the next model year?). Seems to work great, but I have two issues so far: 1) the internal blower does not seam to be able to keep up with the shaving that accumulate. The result is shavings getting between the cutter head and the board, creating a fishing scaling effect on the finished board. 2) it only has one speed, and its kind of quick. This has not effected the cut quality yet, but i think if the feed was a bit slower, it may help with the material being cleared away.... for the full price, it sounds like the dewalt may be a better purchase, but for what I paid I am pleased with the result.
