I'm looking to buy my first planer. I've always heard that the dewalt planer is the best to get but I don't have 600 bucks to spend. I've narrowed it down to either the porter cable planer at lowes or the rigid planer at Home Depot. So far I've been extremely happy with my porter cable tools so I am considering that planer based on my experience with their stuff and the 269.99 price tag. I also have heard pretty good thing about rigid but don't own any rigid tools and don't want to make the wrong choice. The rigid is 369. Any of you guys have experience with either of these planers and can tell me how well they work? Most of the stuff I'll be doing is small projects. I would like to have a planer that can handle a little more though in case I want to start making some furniture.
