The tool itself works great. I bought it to quickly shave down some doors after repainting in the house. It’s solidly built. My only two issues were not easily being able to keep the tool square with the door as I made my pass -and the wood-chip discharge port didn’t fit any of my small shop vacs so I had to “duct tape engineer” something to work since I was working in the house, neither issue of which are necessarily a big deal. Had I been working outdoors or in a wood shop, the second one wouldn’t matter. I felt it was a good value for the money. The grooves on the bottom to shave 45° chamfers on something are an added bonus. I liked that as well.

I got ahold of some old wood and some old decking material. I bought the Wen 6 Amp planer and hoped i could get enough good wood to work on a project. I was really surprised ! I got a few boards planed down, and with a little sanding I got new wood.

was refinishing my wood deck, and the blade assembly did not last very long - caught a knot and bent out of shape on the second day of use - tough time finding a replacement set (not the blades, the assembly holding the blades in) - worked fine up until then, but not exactly for heavy use

I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars. The guide is not 90 degrees and is rather flimsy Other than that, it works like a champ.

Corded Hand Planer - 4-3/8". This hand planer is a great value for the money. It is heavy and sturdy feeling in your hand. Out of the box it is ready to go. The blades are installed and in my first test runs, it cuts smoothly. The guide/fence attachment is in two pieces that need to be assembled. It can attach to either side of the planer. The depth adjustment dial is large and easy to handle. It is easy to adjust the depth of the cut in 2mm increments (1/128th") up to 1/8" max. It adjusts, and stays where you put it, but there is no actual lock on the dial. The ability to switch the dust exhaust to either side is a nice feature. There are two "V" grooves (two sizes) on the planer surface that make it easy to make a chamfer cut on an edge. There is a kick stand that can be easily popped down to keep the blade up when resting the planer. The manual that comes with the planer is well written in good english. The blades are two sided, so when they get dull, they can be turned around to the other side before having to get new blades. I'm happy with this planer.

This is a solid planer for a variety of projects. So far I have used it on doors and to smooth out my old work bench. It has a lot of power and with 16,000 rpm and two blades on the drum, it cuts smooth. A simple knob sets depth from 0"-1/8", at very small increments. The guide is great for keeping it moving along doors and boards. The dust port can be switched from left to right and it catches most chips. At nearly 10 lbs, it is a little heavy but ones on the board it moves smooth. I am glad to have this tool and will use it with most furniture projects in the future that use rough lumber.

In full disclosure, I’m certainly would not be considered a carpenter or woodworker. I’m a DIYer who occasionally has home projects that involve wood. But on those occasions, a hand planer like this is the perfect tool. I confess I’ve resorted to grinders and scrapers in the past to tool wood. It has a width of about 2.5” so planing anything wider requires care to assure uniformity. It has an easy to use depth gage (up to 1/16”) and changing blades appears to be fairly easy. One feature I hadn’t expected but am pleased to see is that it has a large and a small groove in the shoe for making a chamfer. They can be used to create a sloping edge along a corner. Unfortunately, when I opened the box I discovered that the kickstand was broken (see pic), but I was able to glue it. Although my needs for this tool are limited, I’m pleased to have it.
