Review

High Points: ↑ Auto-locking cutterhead and magnetic tool make knife changes easy. ↑ Three-knife cutterhead and two feed speeds produce superior cut quality (at slowest speed).
↑ One of only two tested machines (out of eleven) with an auto-locking carriage, which helps reduce snipe. ↑ A built-in chip-ejection fan clears debris better than any other machine in the eleven tool test. And it has 2-1/2" and 4" dust ports. ↑ Depth-of-cut gauge and thickness scale are accurate and easy to use. ↑ It comes with a 3-year warranty. Low Points: ↓ Power switch does not have a removable lock-out key for safety. ↓ Without optional infeed and outfeed tables (part #DW7351, $50), this planer snipes more than twice as much. More Points: → After slight adjustments, the preset thickness stops proved accurate. → Optional infeed and outfeed tables have side-mounted leveling crews, making it easy to all but eliminate snipe.
