Can this planer be used to plane doors

Asked by: Robert
Yes that is the reason I bought it.All doors in previous house were too tall for doors after carpet laying.Tops and bottoms were planed.Keep a level handy.It is easy to cut off too much on one side door will drag if not level on one side.This leveling also helps when planing one side for carpet and one side for wood or using a thresh hold for outside doors.

Does this planet come with a carrying case/bag?

Asked by: Eric
Mine didn't come with a bag or case. If you go to Home Depot.com. , like I did, they sell all kinds of nifty little bags that you can use to protect the planner from getting banged about and you can carry other stuff in the same bag, like extra blades and bandages. Just kidding.

If I were making some type of table top, would this be a good tool to straighten out board edges so that there is a nice snug fit?
Asked by: Trellany
Yes, but the main thing is to make a jig that helps you keep the planner level. It does a great job of planning the edges for a nice fit as long as you don't wobble as you go down the board. Getting old is a pain.

3.8 Amp 2-3/8 in. Corded Hand Planer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 349.

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.

Powerful, accurate, and chip-ejection on both sides. You may not need a hand-planer very often. But when you need to smooth a rough board or plane the wane from a bowed joist, a hand-planer is the right tool for the job! There are fancier hand-planers. My needs are simple. This WEN hand planer is over 4 inches wide and has oodles of power. I tried a rough-sawn stud and made it finger-smooth in a few passes. I then started planing it down as if it had to fit a specific space and the WEN worked it down very fast. Nice way to shave doors and cabinet trim. The depth-adjust knob has clicks so you can find and repeat the depth of cut you want. Deep for fast chewing of soft wood, fine for smoothing hard wood. A clever 2-way flap shoots the shavings either left or right. An adapter connects to your vacuum to keep your workspace (or home) clean.

The dust bag actually worked to collect most of the sawdust and could vent to either side with the flip of the lever. The guide wasn't needed for what I was doing on the door, but it might come in handy later. This was perfect for a "one-and-done" job.

This corded planer was very easy to use with some good directions provided. It was more than adequate for me. I was planing a door which I was installing. For the price, you can't beat it. The model that provided the catch bag was helpful even though it was a little messy. I recommend this planer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes hundreds of curls Talk about a tool. This planner is awesome. You can direct the flow of chips or curls to the left or to the right with the flick of a actuator. I used it to cut door bottoms and drawer tops and bottoms off so they would fit without sticking. Wow, this made quick work of it, taking 1/64 of an inch off with every pass. The depth of cut can be set by turning the forward knob that also serves as a forward motion control. The adjustments are made in 64ths and are very easy to make. The tool itself is light and very comfortable to use. This is my first planner and I already thought of about a million uses for it. The blades are easily accessible so if you have to change them you can do so without lots of hassle. The tool runs smooth and there is no bucking. I made sure that there were no metal fasteners of any kind in the wood I planned to protect the blades from nicks. Great tool and worth the money for a DIY’er that is concerned about nice even surfaces or laminating wood together to make wider boards or thicker wood for using with a band saw or a tool comparable. I always set the tool back to 0 so as not to nick the blades by accident. As Always Be Safe Using This Tool.

Although I have not used the tools in a Non-Stop since I have used it on several projects and is performed admirably. For the money you just can't beat it!
