WOOD magazine review

Woodstock International Mini Planer Pals W1226

Review Summary

What it does: Similar to the Jointer Pal, magnets hold a planer knife parallel to the cutterhead while you tighten the gib bolts. High points: As with Jointer Pal, setting knives is a no-muss, no-fuss operation. Low points: You still need a dial indicator to ensure that the cutterhead is parallel to the table. More points: For 15–20" planers,you’ll need full-size Planer Pals ($160 per pair, more for the carbide-knife versions).
