  • 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.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
