About This Product

Remember when you needed to smooth out those joists: plane away chips, splinters and misshaped edges with the WEN 6 Amp 3-1/4 in. Electric Hand Planer. Perfect for fixing stubborn doors and reshaping post edges. This power planer's 6 Amp motor delivers over 34,000 cuts per minute to your work piece, slicing away any irregularities until the surface of your boards are aligned and smooth. With a cutting width of 3-1/4 in. and a maximum cutting depth of 1/8 in. you'll have the perfect companion for preparing reclaimed wood back into perfectly useable boards. The 16 positive stops increase in increments of 1/128 in. anywhere from 0 all the way up to 1/8 in. The base plate shoe even includes a V-shaped groove for easily flattening sharp post corners. Aside from the power planer, this package also includes a dust bag, a rabbeting guide, a kickstand and a parallel fence bracket. The rabbeting guide adjusts anywhere from 0 to 7/10 in. to allow for rabbets in a variety of sizes. The parallel fence provides an accurate and straight cut by making sure your strokes are directly parallel to the edge of the wood (a must have for planning door edges, wood trim and boards). The kickstand protects both the blade and the work piece in between uses by keeping the blade elevated and out of contact from the surface of your project. Finally, the dust bag attaches to either side and collects all of your loose shavings to keep your work space clean and sawdust free.

      Very nice planer. Love the large platen. I have a shed full of red oak boards approx. 3/4 inch thick. Probably 20 years old, all done at an amateur mill, so it's rough. I've used hand planers for years, decided to try this planer to see if I could smooth out board's about 8 inches wide. It takes a while, a light touch and be patient. Run down the board and remove as little as you can at a time. By my third board, I got the hang of it. Then sanded the surface to finish. For what I'm using this wood for, this planer works fine. I paid 30 bucks for it!! Now if was intend to build something more refinded, I'll be going back to buy a benchtop planer just for the time savings. Good planer for the bucks!

      East and efficient
      Easily planed the frame of kitchen cabinets instead of sanding which was such a mess. Capable of a really small amount of removal. Took seconds to plane where sanding took days. Smooth as butter and sharp. The motor is a little wide so it counted do the edges at the wall. Worth every cent. Love bed how it simplified my project.

      Excellent Value in Brushless, Cordless Electric Planer
      The Wen 20V Brushless Planer is an excellent value in the crowded Cordless Electric Planer market. The #20653 Kit comes with the 3 1/4" Brushless Planer, a 4 Amp Hour 20 Volt Lithium-Ion Battery & Charger, a Rabbet Depth Gauge and a Parallel Guide Fence. The battery has a LED charge gauge and there is a Safety Kickstand to protect the blades when setting the planer down. Wen has figured out how to provide all these features at a price that is very competitive feature for feature. The brushless motor turns at 13,000 RPM and had no problem smoothing out my hardwood test slab. I don't recall the motor even changing pitch. The Depth of Cut Adjustment Knob has positive détentes every 1 /128" and can cut up to 5/64" per pass. I suggest just using the first two clicks for a maximum of 1/64" per pass to keep things smooth & easy. There is a supplied Dust Bag that fills up very quickly. I suggest using a vacuum hose or going without the dust bag. This is a two reversible blade planer for smooth operation. The blades themselves are a standard size and are compatible with many other brand planers. Twelve High Speed Steel replacement blades were less than $20 and six High Carbon Blades were about $12. My only complaint was that the increments on the Cut Depth Adjustment Knob were hard to read. I intend to go back with a fine tip marker and darken the recessed numbers. The only feature that many mid-range planers have that this lacks is a reversible left or right dust port. This has a right discharge only. Many mid-range planers do not come with the Rabbet Depth Gauge or the Parallel Guide Fence that this has. This has the blade-protecting Safety Kickstand on the Aft Shoe and not all have that feature. All in all this is a powerful tool, a great value and deserves the 5 star rating. This is the second Wen product I have owned. The Wen Benchtop Drill Press I bought a few years ago came with a serious manufacturing defect that Wen made good on without hassle.

      OUTSTANDING PLANER; MANY IMPROVEMENTS STILL POSSIBLE
      The WEN 20-Volt Max Brushless Cordless 3-1/4 in. Hand Planer with 4.0 Ah Lithium-Ion Battery and Charger is the best hand planer either battery powered or not that I have ever used. I mistakenly started with what I thought was the minimum depth setting but it turned out to be the maximum. The planer had no problem cutting through the pallet pine test piece. It took a rough board and made it perfectly smooth. I used a Wen digital micrometer to check the depth setting. It was accurate to within two decimal places. It takes some practice to keep the planer level after it goes off the end of the board. I then switched back to the 1/128 minimum setting. It worked without a glitch. I did not try it on hardwood. Although it is a great planer, it still has many aspects that could be improved. First the dust bag only captured about 90% of the dust. The chip extraction port did not fit any of my vacuums nor was I able to find an adapter. The indicator mark for the rabbet depth gauge is almost imperceptible. You need to look at it in a perfect light to see it. The instructions need to be rewritten by someone who has actually used the product. There were many inconsistencies. Often the instructions assumed that it is a corded model. The planer has a kickstand which is a great idea to keep the planer blade from touching the surface but it does not work at all like the instructions say. The kickstand should be improved to work as described in the instructions. The markings on the depth knob could be made darker to have contrast and make them easier to read. The charger light scheme differs from all of my other charges so a few words describing them in the instructions would have been helpful. Even with all of these suggested improvements, it is still a great planer because it performs its main function flawlessly. The planer is made in China and has a 2-year warranty.

      Great Tool
      I just received this WEN 20 volt max brushless cordless 3 1/4” hand planner with the 4.0 Ah lithium ion battery and charger and I have to say this tool is fantastic. I’ve never used a planner and always wanted one and WEN made a tool that is super easy to use. Hand planning takes time to figure out but this was pretty easy for a beginner. Dust bag worked great but I would recommend hooking it up to a vac or dust collector because planning creates a ton of shavings. Blade adjuster knob worked great and felt sturdy. The kick stand is a nice touch to keep your blade from resting on the work piece. This planner is rather light as well even with the battery in. As you can see in my pictures I was playing around with some really rough lumber and just a few passes cleaned it up and was smooth. Sanding is still required when using planners but I could run my hand down the finish surface and it was smooth. Highly recommend.

      Good planer alternative to Large Expensive Machine
      For those interested in country of origin, this product was made in CHINA. Doing a lot of work around the house and I needed an inexpensive method to plane wood to a better looking condition and remove any surface damage. Tis tool works very well to accomplish the needs and I did not have to spend a lot of money on a seldom used horizontal planer. The unit is easy to assemble. The instructions are not bad. Decided to plane a rough piece of 2x4 as a test. Made several passes at the end, going through the depth gauges. Easy enough to do but split ends at the edges. Probably the old wood. Planed the smaller length of the board going through the depth gauges. No problem and good results. Tried to use the rabbiting feature. Not so much a success, but assume time needed to get knowledge on how to use the planer. All in all pretty satisfied. Only problem is the collection bag. Worked on the piece of wood making 15 passes and the bag was full. Need to connect to shopvac for better working results.

      Greatly useful tool!
      I've seen these before but never tried one. After I tried this WEN cordless planer, I was hooked. I tested it on the edge of an old board and it made it look like new wood again. I also used it to trim my shed door that always seems to stick and will use it on the window frames as well. It has a handle in front that doubles as a depth gauge where you can set how much wood the planer will cut on each pass. So simple! It comes with a plastic foot that folds out so you don't have to let the blade make contact with your table. It also comes with a 4.0 amp-hour lithium-ion battery (and charger) that keeps its power despite the battery level. The battery also has a charge indicator so you can always see how much juice is left. It also has a dust bag, which is really handy, because it really spits out a lot of wood when you use it. There is also a rabbeting guide and a parallel fence to make sure each pass is on target. It can take 3-1/4" passes, so it will be handy for me when I glue up boards to make a longer board and I want to remove the excess glue and get both glued boards to exactly the same level.

        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.
