Product Overview

  • Allows for adjustable cutting depths for custom work
  • Powerful motor allows for 34,000 cuts per minute
  • Dust bag helps to contain the mess
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.

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.

6 Amp 3-1/4 in. Corded Hand Planer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 230.

I purchased this when planing a board that was too wide to fit in my full size planer. I didn't intend on using it very often, and so I opted to save some money and go with WEN. I was greatly surprised to find out that this is actually a really nice, high quality tool. It took a little bit of getting used to, but once I had the hand of it, it made easy work of planing that board down. My recommendation is to either let the chips fly with no vacuum, or check the ejection port often to make sure it isn't getting plugged up. Also, use this planer on one of the lowest settings to get the best results. It does have the power to take off more at a time, but the finish will be much more likely to have a roughness to it and dips throughout if you take off too much at once. A great tool at a fantastic price. It even has a little kickstand to keep the blades off of the resting surface when you are not using it.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little To Compare To I will open this review by stating that I have never owned an electric planer before this one so my comparison, based on personal use, is limited at best. This is, however a tool that has been on my personal 'wish list' for quite some time. The item comes almost ready to use right out of the box. Upon first inspection, one would jump to the conclusion that it is "cheap" because of the plastic body. This cannot be farther from the truth! The body material is super sturdy and lite enough to be manageable for long periods of time. The critical components are metal and durable as well. Ease of operation, adjustment and dust collection are simple for a beginner user. The dust collection allows for left or right extraction and can also be connected to a vac. system if desired. My project samples yielded good results and I'm sure the results will be better with a little more practice. Ideal for taking imperfections out of new & old wood alike; down to the smallest of removal amounts. My final thoughts.... For the cost of a good, manual, hand planer, you can own a quality electric planer with all the features & benefits of a planer costing 3x as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Tool The WEN Planer was ready to use right out of the box unless you needed to attach the "Fence" accessory. I planed a section of damaged, uplifted wood on my deck railing (photo's attached for your review). I set the easy to set depth control to 1/64" and within a minute or so the wood was flat again. Tip: Because you hold onto the knob in front of the planer, which is also the depth controller, be careful that you don't turn the knob, which will raise or lower your cut. It happened to me but thankfully it turned to Zero cut on the dial. The parallel Fence attachment is a plus for this Planer. The Rest Stop is also a great idea. It keeps the tool up and off the surface, thus keeping the blades from damaging the wood or themselves. This tool can even make rabbets up to an inch in size. Depending on your position, you can attach the dust collector bag to either side of the Planer which is an excellent feature. The bag won't hold a lot of chips and will need to be emptied often so keep an eye on it. The 2 year warranty is also a nice deal. I have so many damaged wood projects to do and now it's more like fun to fix them with this WEN Planer. You can purchase extra blades on the WEN website for around 10 bucks. I don't believe Home Depot carries blades for this Planer. I think I did a good job on my deck railing being that it was the first time I had ever used an electric hand planer. I definitely recommend this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Depth Adjustment, Accurate Cuts, Smooth Planing, Easy to Set Up This electric planer really surprised me with how easy it was to use. I have never owned an electric planer, I always did it by hand. With this new machine, I doubt I'm ever going back to manual work. The body is plastic, but does not feel cheap. The shoe is all metal and has a kick stand that automatically swings down when not planing so that you an rest the machine on it's shoe without the blade touching the surface and dulling or denting the project. All fences, depth gauges are metal and secure with large set screws. It's mostly ready out of the box. Everything but the included sawdust bag is attached. You can mount the bag on the left or right and flip a switch to send the debris that direction. This also means you can attach your vacuum to either side depending on how you are working. Depth of cut is adjusted by a large knob on the top of the shoe. Adjustment can be made from 1/128" to 1/8" and each click of the knob moves the cutter 1/128" each time. That is a huge range and can fit most tasks. This also comes set up for rabbeting out of the box. You only need to adjust the built in rabbet depth gauge and get to cutting. If you need to chamfer, it has a 45 degree cut in the shoe to allow for it. If that isn't enough, it also comes with a parallel fence that can be attached without tools using the built in set screw. Maintenance is easy, the blade can be removed by removing a built in wrench and simply loosening the nuts that hold the blade. Quick and simple sharpening and replacement. The large handle and depth knob ensure confident and stable cuts. The 6 amp motor powers through any type of wood. You can even smooth out a beat up old 2x4 with holes in it and it never skips a beat. Overall this is a top buy in my opinion. It has everything you need and then some.
