Would this be a passable alternative to a benchtop or freestanding jointer for edge jointing boards a couple of feet long, around 3/4" to 1" thickness?
Asked by: RichW
I tried it and it's not very precise. I'd get snipe with it. I bought the Ridgid floor standing model. Much much better

What type of blades? How easy to change?

What type of blades? How easy to change?
Asked by: Cheese
They are common blades used by many power planers Item # 690861001. They are reversible so that when one edge wears out you can reverse them before having to replace them. The user guide which is attached to the home depot item and has the steps/guide on page 9 and images on pg 15 (At the very end of the guide after all of the other languages). It's effectively 9 steps and 3 screws per blade. I haven't personally replaced the blade on this model but it seems pretty straight forward.

Can this be used for deck refinishing?

Can this be used for deck refinishing?
Asked by: MM
Hi MM, This would plain the wood from a deck but not while they are mounted on the deck. The nails or screws would chip the blades on the plainer. Thanks for your interest. Greg

18-Volt OCTANE Cordless Brushless 3-1/4 in. Hand Planer (Tool Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.

I've picked up this planer a few weeks ago after my DeWalt planer's motor crapped out shortly after the warranty period expired. I have been switching my cordless tool line from DeWalt to Rigid because I believe DeWalt is slipping behind the advances that Rigid is making and striving for. The warranty and batteries for life is hard to pass up when going with the Rigid line. I'm a cabinet professional and push my tools to the max everyday. Rigid holds up the best and I never have to worry about parts, service, or batteries. This planer is a workhorse in my shop with a wide variety of uses. The dust bag is key and I like the ability to switch sides for discharge when I'm up against an obstacle. Easy depth adjustment and lightweight with plenty of power.

Huge difference from the old one the first thing I was pleased with they did away with stupid blades they had on the other one,no longer be bought. The new version has reversable blades and are easily purchased from Ridgid for 3 bucks a set I bought a dozen and belts to so l won’t be stuck again!

I love my new Octane Planner, its easy to use and surprisingly you can use it on hardwoods like Oak and Walnut with no issues. It has the usual great qualities as other Rigid tools, its comfortable to use, the ease of making adjustments and with having the dust collector go on either side is a new added bonus that I wish some of my other tools had. I had to plan down 10 old antique doors to make them fit into a new home and with using the 9 amp battery i never had to change the battery and it still had 50% of it charge. I would recommend this tool to anyone who has the use for it, another Rigid winner.

I had a whole house of 100 year old solid wood doors warped from age and water damage to refit. I used a 6Ah octane battery to make sure it had plenty of power, and it totally did. Each door took only a matter of minutes to shave down and slide back into the jam. Not having to deal with finding outlets and stringing along cords made for quick and easy work going from room to room. Super happy with this planer. It does throw shavings everywhere, but that was to be expected. Having the bag movable from side to side also came in handy, nice feature.

This new Ridgid planer is unlike any other cordless tool I have ever used. From the easy to use adjustment knob with its swiss clock-like precision, to the switchable exhaust port, there is a no design feature that was left unfinished. The new sleek design provides great balance and ample power that helps it glide through the work material. Overall I am overwhelmed with joy over this new planer. It has been something I have been in need of for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of features! !! This is the best cordless planer ever. Its full if great ideas, the design team in on top of their game. The octane power is amazing and not the first or last octane tool I will have. First the handle is extremely comfortable and the controls are right where they are needed and the Reversible dust bag with switch to left or right is extreamly nice and helps with the clean up and the fact it has not only a Easy to change belt the blades are also presharpened on both sides so if you are on a job and need sharpened blades just remove them and turn them around. Also they appear to be the same blade as other ridgid planer so replacement should be easy to find and the adjustment is from 0" to 1/8". And the Easy to replace belt with a nice window to see the belt for inspection so you don't get in the middle of a job and have the belt break this allows you to have a tool on the job that will not be out of service when you need it. It also has a Nice adjustable edge guide can be flipped over for storage and a nice guide on the bottom for chamfering corners. And to protect the blade it had a automatic kick stand to help prevent blade damage. The On board hex key storage (pretty much the hex key does it all) keeps the most needed tool for repair and adjustment close at hand. This is a must have tool.
