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.
  • 6 amp motor provides up to 34,000 cuts per minute

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 225.

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.

I have only used the planer once so far, but my initial impression is, wow! I used it to smooth the bottom of a door that I trimmed with my circular saw prior to getting this planer. I was impressed with the ease with which it took down the material and also with how smooth the resulting surface is! I did not use the included dust bag, but can see how it would fill very quickly and become a hassle to deal with. That would be my one critique of the product. I hope that it withstands a fair amount of use and continues to work as well as my first attempt with it. For the price, it can't be beat!

Planed 2x 12s 40 feet long after screwed together, 1/4 inch difference between the two of them. Got done quickly. The dust bag is way too small but if bigger would it be in the way? The only thing is there is no lock for depth gage so when you use it for a handle it can change the depth too easily.

I am replacing a balcony patio off the back of my house, two 2 x 10 X 16 did not but up flush to each other because of a slightly twisted column, they were about1/4"off from each other. the planer took off the excess with a breeze so I could add a 24" plate to stiffen the joint. The planner was easy to use and I was on a ladder at 68 years of age.

It works well, and leaves a smooth finish. There is a learning curve when it comes to planing, and without spending a lot of money, this tool is a great way to start learning how to plane with a power tool.

I've only used it for 2 projects so far but it's not bad as long as you keep an eye on the depth knob. I wouldn't use it for extreme precision work but for small projects that just need to be good not perfect it's pretty good.

Got the hang of it after about a minute of using it. Gets the job done. Good investment. Just got it, and put it to work right away. Used it to plane a sticking door. Worked so well that I’m planing the rest of my doors as well.
