Best Planer for the Money

11779 Views 21 Replies 21 Participants Last post by  Outpost22
I'm still new to woodworking and have been thinking about a purchasing a planer. I have never used a planer before, so I would have to learn to use it. What planer out would you recommend to purchase? I'm looking low cost, easy to operate, not big or bulky, somewhat portable (meaning I can use it on a table and then store it away after I'm done) and good performance. What should I look for or make sure one has when looking to make this purchase?

Like David & Bill, I too had the DeWalt 733 for over 20 years and was used heavily on rough mahogany and teak.
I now have a "refurbished" DeWalt 734 that I bought online and have no issues with it. (but I don't use it much).
and when you actually use the 3 blade and compare it to a 2 blade cutter, you will see the difference.
