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 501.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 Star. That's all it gets. Maybe that will change Ridgid. Lifetime warranty. Let's see how this plays out. I may change from 1 star depending on how home depot & Ridgid handle this. I bought this planer a few years ago and am a WWW(weekend warrior woodworker). I have bought every set of knives for this planer from the same home depot store I bought the planer from. I have used a mere 6, yes only SIX sets of knives and today, the motor is shot. I clean this thing incessantly (air compressor every time I change the knives and in between as well) and take very good care of my tools. THE MOTOR HAS COMPETELY SEIZED AFTER ONLY 6 SETS OF KNIVES. I have never run this planer for more than 10-15 minutes at a time and it is properly connected to my shop's dust collection system. This planer's motor should have lasted a LOT longer than it has. I am NOT a happy camper right now given the price of this tool. I chose this Ridgid over the D-yellow competitor (you know who I am talking about) because of features/reviews and today...it has left me STUCK...in the middle of an important job that needs to be done. Not happy at all right now. ONLY 6 SETS OF KNIVES PEOPLE.--- MOTOR IS SEIZED--- BUYER BEWARE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid 13"Thickness Planer W/ 3-Blade Cutterhead I really like this planer! After reading many reviews on planers in its price range $300.00 - $400.00 I decided to buy this one. Most all of the Delta, Dewalt and Ryobi's had issues that guys didn't like the results they were getting or the issues they had to put up with like, time to change out the blades and snipping issues. My view on buying tools is this...I may not be a professional wood guy but I also don't want to buy something I am not going to be happy with. So I tend to pay a little more for my tools so "A" they last me and "B" I don't have issues with changing part or having problems getting them easily. So, I went with this one. Un-boxing: It was a snap. All I had to do was put on the dusk collector and plug it in. I made sure that all of the blades and such were tight and level and then ran a test peace of wood. "PERFECTION"!!! I can not state how much I like this thing. I even ran an end grain cutting board made from Purple Heart through it and it didn't snip it at all. Buy this thing you wont be sorry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well enough but very LOUD!! Bought one of these last night and ran it about 3 hours today. I'm writing this review because one of the staff in the store said he wanted to show me how quiet it is. My advice to staff would be to say nothing to customers about this being quiet. It is far louder than my old 10" Ryobi / Benchmark that I was using yesterday. Even with hearing protection it screams like a tortured demon and that's before it starts cutting anything. Otherwise seems to work well enough, has a lot more features than my old one. I was planing somewhat dirty maple and oak (swept off with a broom) for 3 hours and it still makes an acceptable cut. Even though it has run over some bits of steel nail collating wire that I missed. The feed rollers are weak. When they slip, which happens often, they leave rubber on the wood like an eraser. For the price, it will do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great planer for the price I use my planer every day in a pretty high volume shop and plane oak, cherry, walnut, hickory, cedar, maple and cypress. It has some issues - would prefer the vacuum port come out the other side away from the adjustment handle; I replaced the cheap screws holding the blades in place with 10MM bolts with heads; does drop some chips even when hooked up to a large vacuum - but not a real problem; have had to take in for service once and the process worked well - fixed and returned in a couple of days; I was going through a set of blades a week until I made a jig that allows me to hone the old blades and they work great for a few days - then I just hone them again - fortunately I kept all the old blades; had some snipe issues that required a lot of "tinkering" to resolve. Overall a GREAT value for the money. I have a larger, much more expensive planer that I rarely use - blades for my other machine are $120 a set. My Home Depot store has plenty of blades (although I don't buy them any more now that I have my honing jig set up). My planer has the lifetime warranty - I plan on using it for a LONG time...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for a couple days Please read the other reviews because I had the same problem they had. Ordered product on line due to my local stores not carrying it and I thought I would buy my first Rigid product. They had the Dewalt 734 in stock but went for the Rigid. Easy set up but only using it a few times, I'm a hobbyist, it started making and aweful loud noise. After reading the reviews here others had the same problem with plastic gears being out of line or warped. I took it back to the store, no problem on the return, they were very nice. I grabbed the Dewalt off the shelf and have been using it since. So I can compare the two very easily. The Dewalt is built a little more sturdy and runs more smoothly. The Dewalt creates less snipe as well. The motor seems stronger and the cuts are a little better than the Rigid. Both come with a shop vac hook up which is very nice. Not upset about the Rigid, sometimes you just have to get your hands on tools to learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate, powerful, easy to set up and operate My faithful old Delta 22-560, which makes 18000 cuts per minute with two blades just wasn't quite up to the job of planing end-grain cutting boards. The Ridgid 4331 three blade planer makes 27000 cuts per minute and is so accurate and smooth that it planed several end grain hardwood cutting boards, including one 12 7/8 x 22". After adjusting the in-feed and out-feed table extensions and bolting the R4331 to the work-bench, it planed these difficult to plane pieces so well that they needed very little sanding with my Porter Cable 6" random orbital. Ind-I-Cut made it easy to make several passes of about 1/128", one of the keys to successful end-grain planning. I inspected the blades and blade keepers after this hard workout and they looked perfect. Access to the blades involves removing two screws with the provided tool -- I don't see how it could be much easier. The chip extractor works very well with my dust collecting system. It took only a few minutes to register online with Ridgid to get the lifetime warranty. If this tool keeps performing the way it has this week, I will continue to be very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst product ever Ive gad oroblems with this thinf fron the moment i unboxed it. The depth gauge selector knob was Stripped so I fix that because I didn’t feel like that constituted a trip to Home Depot. First boards i ran through were fine, then after no more than 45 days having this thing I got a run a 2 x 10 Oak through it I can’t handle it, even trying to only take off 1/64 of an inch that’s just ridiculous. But nonetheless I gave Reggie the benefit of the doubt and thought well maybe I need to change the blades, So I go to turn the blades around instead of changing them in the tools they give you to do so strip several of the nuts hold it in so now I can’t change the blade even if I wanted to needless to say I’m on my way to Home Depot for a full refund. I certainly hope

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent over all with a few exceptions Over all, a really good machine, does a great job. Easy to understand and use. Well made. I like it better than the more expensive Dewalt I borrowed from a friend. The replacement blades are also cheaper then the Dewalt blades. Especially if you buy the 3rd party blades. It does have two issues that are annoying: 1. Even with a good vacuum connected, it drops more wood scraps on the floor, in front of the machine then I expected. 2. The vacuum connection is in a bad location. The hose sticks out from the right side, so you can't get around it while planning wood. The thickness adjustment is on the same side of the machine. Where I would expect to walk during operation, since you need to adjust the thickness on just about every pass. It would have been better if the hose came straight out the back, then the user could connect their vacuum using their preference side to work from. But, I would buy it again if I needed another one,
