If you have lots of planing to do, the best way is with a power planer. Kevin
reckons the Ryobi Rebate Planer is the right tool for the job because it has
some great features and does the job perfectly.
This plane can eject waste either to the left or right – this keeps your bench
and tools from being buried in shavings and sawdust – plus it has a bag to catch
shavings. There’s also a stand that lets you put the plane down safely on the
bench while the cutter is still spinning down.
Another great feature is its ability to cut rebates (a stepped cut). By using a
simple fence, the planer can cut straight, accurate rebates very quickly. The
soft start feature also takes the ‘kick’ out of the machine.
The Ryobi Electronic Rebate Planer is available at Mitre 10 and other quality
