    Comments about 12-1/2-in Benchtop Planer:

    This planer is perfect for just about any woodworking job you throw at it. I have run maple, oak, hickory and soft woods through it, and it has handled all with ease. Easy to set up, and simple to use. I would recommend this planer to anybody who works with wood. And it is just as good as some high dollar planers I have used in the past.

    Used tool to plane 20 foot long boards handled job great. Be careful blades are fragile hit a concealed nail and took chunk out of blade. Still able to finish job with same blades by avoiding the damage on blade which luckily was at the edge. For the money a great tool highly recommend

        I'm a beginning woodworker trying to get started without breaking the bank. I purchased this reconditioned unit on sale. I used in to build a cherry stereo cabinet. It was accurate and created a great surface. It was easy to use and did a great job. Thanks CPO.

          Comments about 12-1/2-in Benchtop Planer:

          I bought this unit because I'm tired of planing by hand. This tool is perfect for me. In fact too good. Why too good. Well now I had to go out and buy a Rebuilt Joiner. Of course I went back to CPO and bought the joiner from them.

          I love working with wood and building specialty items. As I've gotten older the hands and elbows have a harder time. So why not make old age easier and still be as productive.

          When I found CPO and had the opportunity to purchase the planer it has opened up new avenues to explore. The unit works perfect. What more could I ask.

          • Q:

            I have a 12 and a half inch Porter-Cable surface planer, model PC305TP. The machine is new to me, but I have no owner's manual or instruction sheet. Is this material available online, and does anyone have an address to locate the proper instructions or directions for safe use in the home shop?
            Thanks for any help.

          • Q:

            My wood stock is 7 to 12" wide, rough cut to 1/4" thick, and I need to plane both sides to reach 1/8" thickness. My experience with planers is that once the wood gets less than 1/4" thick, the planer will not effectively grip and feed the wood while cutting, sometimes shredding the wood, and often shooting it out. Will this planer safely and reliably plane both sides of the wood down to 0.120"?
