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?

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.

RIDGID 18-Volt OCTANE Cordless Brushless 3-1/4 in. Hand Planer (Tool Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32.

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.

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 am surprised by how precise this is and how easily it removes even old hard wood. Have used it multiple times on doors for trimming and it saves so much time and effort. Easy to maneuver and I love having no cord. This is a great addition to the 18V Octane line.

Lightweight tool but not holding back on the power, especially when paired with an Octane battery. Chip bag is a bit bulky and in the way but it works surprisingly well and is great for indoor use. I typically use this planer for door and window installs and it is fantastic...best feature, no cord!
