You can not mention bench tops planers without mentioning a Makita. The Makita 2012NB 12-inch planer with interna-lok automated head clamp comes available at the price range of $550 – $650. This puts this machine at the top end of our bench top list for a similar price to the DeWalt DW735X.
The original package the product comes in includes the 12” double edged planer blade, one magnetic holder, a blade wrench, a key and a tool box.
The great thing about the Makita planers is the low noise levels (83dB). This makes for a very comfortable operation the DIY-er will enjoy even more. Apart from that, there is the interna-lock option which prevents sniping altogether.
The width cutting capacity is of 12 inches. The depth cutting capacity is 1 /8 inches. The cutting depth can be adjusted for more precision planning and stop for repeat cuts.
The 15 amp motor performs 8,500 rotations per minute. It only weighs 62 pounds, making it easily transportable to the work site. Also, it comes with a LED light which indicates when the plug is not in.
The blades are easily changed, and disposable double-edge blades are available. Another great feature consists in the optional dust collector.
