Has anyone tried the DeWalt 12.5-inch planer? I need to plane about 500 BF of hickory. I figured it would do the job as long as I kept sharp blades on it. Any comments?
The features I like on the DeWalt are the head-locking feature, larger infeed and outfeed tables, and faster cutter speed. The DeWalt does a good job for me.
If you want to save a few dollars on a DeWalt, Harbor Freight periodically sells reconditioned planers for about $330. Don't know if all those reconditioned planers say anything about their dependability. I've had no problems with mine.
