I’m thinking of buying my first thickness planer. I’ve been impressed by the reviews I’ve seen of cutech planers, but haven’t been able to find many reviews of this particular model. There is currently a deal with free shipping and a mobile stand.

Any reason that a hobbyist might steer clear of this particular model?

I’ve heard really good things about the cutech planers & jointers. My only thought is that for around $70 more you can get the same model with carbide cutters – I think that would be worth the extra money.

If the cutters are like those on the jointer, they have 2 working sides. You can get extra cutters in both HSS and carbide.
That’s a pretty darned good planer.

Love my carbide version. I don’t have a point of reference but it eats everything I put into it. No regrets.

Thanks for the advice. Pulled the trigger. Looking forward to expanding the kind of projects I can do.

Have your say...
