Vevor thickness planer review and hands-on test
The first thing that jumps out when you have the planer in your hands is not its size (average) but its weight. Placing it on the structure to be assembled or on a workbench alone will actually extremely difficult and you will need help.
The construction material is suitable for its use, which mainly is in the field of leisure and unprofessional. Creating objects through woodworking will be a lot of fun and also the end result should be considered excellent.
After connecting the cable to the electrical outlet, you will need to turn the crank to the desired height and then turn on the machine (progressive lowering of the crank step by step). The noise of the instrument is quite annoying but less than other instruments of different brands (use headphones!) but you will have to find a vacuum cleaner whose nozzle fits perfectly into the final opening (or adapt it).
Changing the knife is an operation to be done only if experiencedeven if the correct tool is available, and it is essential to keep the aircraft clean for its proper use over time.
