How to use Planer
- The power hand planer (or electric planer) sits on a foot, or sole plate, like a hand plane. Like a jointer, the planer has blades mounted on a cutter head or drum that spins at 20,000 rpm, cutting wood equal to the height difference between the front and back feet.
- Get the most out of the device by mastering the correct way of holding and moving the planer. Correct alignment of your body guarantees the protection and the best results in preparation.
- The pace at which you move the machine, and the depth setting you select, will affect your work’s final smoothness.
- Apply greater control to “pick” the rear handle when taking the tool off the job. Stop overreaching at the end of a pass; the front shoe drops off the wood and allows the blades to pick off an uneven bite from the wood end.
- Hold the initial front grip pressure on as the planer reaches the workpiece.
- Unplug the power planer until you switch blades or make some repairs and tool changes.
- Blades that are not firmly fixed onto the cutter head cause the tool to vibrate. Double-check the tightness of mounting bolts before the planer is used.
- Leave it run for a while before using the tool on an actual workpiece. Watch for vibration or wobbling that may indicate poor installation or a blade that is not well balanced.
- To secure and maintain the workpiece to a stable platform, using clamps or other practical means. Keeping the job by your hand or against your body makes it unstable and could result in loss of control.
- If battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, such as paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, which can attach from one terminal to another.
- Do not exit the tool. Just use the device while handheld. Change all blades or covers on the drum always, or the resulting mismatch would cause vibration and shorten the life of the tools. Only use the Makita blades mentioned in this handbook.
- Connectors with power tool must suit the outlet. Never change the connector in any way. Do not use any Earthed (grounded) power tool adapter plugs. Unmodified plugs and compatible outlets minimize electric shock risk.
