About This Product

Remember when you brought those old jagged boards back to life. The WEN 13 in. 3-Blade Benchtop Thickness Planer repurposes rough and worn wood to give it an exceptionally smooth finish. The powerful 15 Amp motor provides over 25,500 cuts per minute at a 26 ft. per minute feed rate. Plane boards up to 13 in. W and 6 in. T with ease. The onboard planning gage helps inform users about the amount of material being removed during each pass. Combine that with the heavy-duty cast iron base for a sturdy planer that does not walk or wobble during operation. The handy depth adjustment knob varies each pass to take off anywhere from 0 in. to 3/32 in. of an inch. The fan-assisted dust port removes chips and sawdust from the workpiece and blasts them out of the way. This package also includes height-adjustable infeed and outfeed tables to limit snipe while providing extra support to your workpiece during planning. Easily mount the planer to a work surface or stand using the predrilled base holes. Repurpose old wood or make a set of boards flush with the WEN 13 in. 3-Blade Benchtop Thickness Planer. And because its a WEN product, this planer comes backed by a nationwide network of skilled service technicians, a helpful customer support line and a two-year warranty. Remember when your planer could handle even the hardest of woods. Remember WEN.

Q:How can the static be reduced while using my planer? Can to much static be a bad thing?
by|Aug 10, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Here's what I've done for my CNC. I wrapped copper wire throughout the vacuum hose and connected the wire to the grounding screw on the dust collector. You can also connect the wire to the grounding screw on the wall outlet.

      I've only had occasion to use my new planer a few times thus far, but I must admit that each time it has been clean and true! The reviews were favorable before my purchase, and that is why I bought the WEN instead of the more expensive brand. No regrets! Cuts were clean and smooth, and it wasn't as loud as I expected. Huge thumbs up! I built a cabinet for it, too.

      Planer came out of it's box ready to work. And, after having only used it for a few jobs so far, can report out my 5-star rating with no fear of future regret. After practice runs on a few clean and smooth lengths of pine, to observe reaction to a range of cut settings, with planer response as expected, next was a real tough task: cleaning up some salvaged solid black walnut, whose prior history were as two large Danish Modern cabinets. Recovered slabs were 12" wide and a bit over 3/4' thick, that had a heavy coating of dry and damaged oil & wax finish. Cleaned all slabs up with minimum effort and got walnut back to clean & flat 3/4" stock, ready to become new MBR drawer and door fronts. "Happy" is too weak a word, given how this new tool has performed so far. Btw, my shop-vac sucked up 99% of all planer chips with no clogging, which differs from other users postings.

      For the money this is one excellent surface planer. I was concerned about the quality for under $300 planer but this planer cuts my boards with no rip outs or sniping. Well worth the money for what I paid.

      She’s loud but does a great job! I don’t think you can beat this for the price. I hooked my RIGID shop vac up to it and the mess is minimal. I haven’t come across any issues and I have put quite a bit of lumber through it! Snipe is easy to avoid in my opinion.

      Works great. Have used for pine, fir, oak and walnut. Occasionally it can get a little bogged down with oak or walnut, but if you just adjust the depth of the cut to be a bit less that usually takes care of the problem. I have found that connecting a shop vac to the dust port actually causes it to get more clogged up because my shop vac sucks less volume than the planner is putting out... guess its time to get some proper dust collection.

        Good entry level planer I would say. So far only some construction grade pine; 2x10 and 4x4s. The 4x4s seemed to be slipping under the rollers, needed light forward pressure to keep it moving steady. Surprisingly smooth new surface. 1/4 turn of the knob is the right amount of adjustment. The debris port gets clogged frequently unless a shop vac is attached, which is recommended by manufacturer. Added a 4" dryer vent to direct the chips into a bin and worked alright. I temporarily attached it to my collapsible miter saw stand until I build a station for it. Should you do this, don't collapse the stand with it mounted as I feel it's too heavy to be supported vertically and not slip or cause damage to the rails its attached to. I'm happy with it so far, if my hobby continues to anything more than just that, I'll likely be upgrading for more efficient machine in regard to chip evacuation. But for the price, this is the sacrifice I make and I recommend it based on my experiences so far.

        Product was well packed and all parts (not many loose ones, thank you) easily identified with directions for everything. It appears to be well built and solid and you should probably have someone help lifting it out of the box, because it's got some heft to it. The dust collector chute with fan moves the debris quite well through attached PVC plumbing. Although it's a "bench top" machine, I mounted it to a sturdy cart for mobility, started it and ran several pieces of lumber through it. It ran smoothly and did a very good job of shaving various thicknesses without much drag on the motor. I only gave it 4 stars at this time because I haven't used it extensively yet.

        Replaced Dewalt 735 and other than chip port not having much blow, it's great.
