Out of the Box, easy set up and wow, turns wood into nice square stock. Just read the instructions and I take as little off as possible each pass. And be darn sure there are no, No Nails in the lumber. I think one can get by with used lumber, if it's not warped or dosen't contain nails or a nail. O...

This is my first planner. Easy setup. I was Very impressed with how smooth the boards were when they came out of this planner. They feel like they have been sanded with 120 - 220 grit sandpaper. It is a bit heavy, but it is definitely worth the effort !

First planer I've owned as a fairly new woodworking hobbyist trying to make Holiday gifts.Ready to go out of the box, some minor sniping and in hindsight, really wished it had a depth lock, not sure why that isn't a feature on all planers. Dust port didn't mate with my shopvac, even with provided co...

It works great and more than met my expectations especially for an inexpensive planer. The picture of the product makes it look like it is plastic and cheap but it is not. The only parts that are plastic are the height adjustment knob and the debris chute

As a first time user of a thickness planer, I found the planer easy to setup and use. All pieces and parts made it to the store without damage and directions were on well written. The only issue I found problematic was a slight dip in the otherwise pristine cut appears approximately one inch from...

after figuring out why you get sniping, which should be explained by WEN, The planer itself has worked very good and as advertised. Can not talk about how long the blades last because of the short time I have owned the unit.

It was ok, but there were 2 clips that are supposed to be welded inside the top cover laying in the bottom of the box. Also the plastic knob on the up down crank is crushed and wont stay on

On the first planer I received, the left side mounting hole for the infeed table was set too low, causing the stock to bump against the planer bed. I called Wen customer service, and if can say one good thing, they were very helpful, and quickly shipped out a new unit. Unfortunately, on the replacem...

good so far, I have only used it once and it did a very nice job on some pine I needed to thin down from 3/4" to 9/16"

This plainer was better yhen I hope for. the only thing negetive about it, was the hook up to my shop vac. had to do some modifieing to get it to work. but athere then that it is a great product. thanks.

Works great. Putting Purple Heart through it and it cleanly planes it down. Well worth the low cost. Small amount of snipe but easily fixed by lifting the wood a bit.

It works better then I expected it to, no shacking or kickback, it turned a nasty 100+ year old hickey board in a thing of beauty.

This planer is a great value. It is very well made to last for years. It has a chain drive at the bottom of the planer for strong secure adjustments. And it comes completely assembled.

This planer is a wonderful addition to my workshop! I love the vacuum port, makes for keeping the entire area clear of dust and shavings! This unit is easy to use. The unit won't allow me to make to deep of cut and that's a big plus! I've put some big stuff (12" X 6" X 9') through this machine with...

planer was better than I thought it was going to be,well constructed,easy to operate and more power than I pictured it would have,great for the home shop and anything you need to do there. Only complaint was the allen wrench that was suppose to be on top of the guard housing had either come loose o...

As with some tools in this price category I was not expecting much. I was wrong. This is a good quality product at a very reasonable price. Is it a high production, commercial shop planer...no? I bought this unit to help me recycle some beautiful solid mahogany doors that had rot in several areas al...

I have already re-purposed much of my old cedar decking for projects, including table tops, and all boards were perfectly matched. Thanks.

had to set the slide table because it was tilted...also had to repair the side panel from damage during shipping...not the manufacturers fault but is an issue when purchasing online...cut well and come out with a good surface after you reset end table and main slide table...for what others are askin...

Strong Suction, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight. First project removing veneer from buffet base and putting on new. Cleaned up well. Needed a lot of tweaking to start using. Extension tables were higher than granite table, cutting was deeper on right than on left. Book instructi...

I'm very pleased with this planer thus far. It's my first and in my opinion a great entry level unit for someone just getting into woodworking or on a budget. Hooks up easy to the shop vac or dust collection. I would recommend a cyclone type chip collector if you can swing it. I used it remotely wit...

What is the minimum thickness I can plane a board? I am looking for 1/4 thickness for some jewel...

Planing down to 1/4" will be no problem, I planed a board down to 1/8 no problem

You should be able to but I would place it on a 12 inch board and make a jig out of it and fasten it down and be able to do 1/4 inch materal with no problem

I've planed 3/4 to 1/4 easily

are replacement blades available for this unit

Yes
