DeWalt DW680K, 3-1/4 Inch, 7 Amp Planer
DeWalt’s planer comes with a much lower price tag than the others we’ve looked at. That doesn’t mean that this planer is anything less than the others though. It comes with a 7 amp motor, which drives the cutterhead at 15,000 RPM, allowing a maximum depth of cut of 3/32 (2.5mm). It can also be used for rabbeting up to 1/2 deep.
The tool will work with either high speed steel or reversible carbide blades which come with the unit. It also has a rabbeting fence included, so you don’t have to buy that separately. Three grooves in the front part of the shoe make it easy to use the planer for different depths of chamfers. A kickstand protects the blades and workpiece when not in use.
