Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plain good! I used it to plane some pine logs I split in half to use for firecircle benches. Worked very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PL2632K 3-1/4 In. Planer Kit The Bosch PL2632K Planer is my second of this type. The first from another manufacturer served me well for years, until an accident brought it to an untimely end. My point here being that I am familiar this type tool an how to use it. The PL2632K is a well-made product & very good buy very good buy and one which I heartily recommend. There are however, a couple design flaws that you need to be aware of: 1. The Dual-Mount Guide Fence is NOT at a right angle to the foot. The metal Guide Fence is in fact it in fact itself bent do it a 3-degree offset, such that using the (gray) 3-degree overshoe actually places the Guide Fence’s face perpendicular to the foot and use of the (black) Straight Overshoe Places the Guide Fence at a 3-degree offset. Exactly the opposite of what’s expected. It is possible that the metal, Dual-Mount Guide Fence I received is a 3-degree anomaly, but as long as you know it. The fence still functions as it should as long as you check which overshoe makes it perpendicular to the foot. 2. This one is not a problem with the planer, but an oversight in design of the case: It is not possible to assemble the mounting brackets to the Guide Fence and store it in the case. A slight modification of the case design would have allowed this. As it is, you must dissemble the Guide Fence after every use to get it back in the case. This makes it prone to losing the carriage-bolt, washer, or thumb-nut, as they are easily dropped. On a construction site this is likely to make them disappear forever! Neither of these materially affects the function of the planer. They are just minor annoyances that you need to be aware of. If it were not for #1 above, I would have given the PL2632K a 5-Star rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, smooth plane. I have been hand planing live edge tables with this - works great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Planer I bought this to square up some cambered wall studs. It has plenty of power to cut through hard, 100 year old, oak boards. The only problem I had was the chip collection system will clog with taking heavy cuts in softer wood like pine. It's easy to clear, and continue on. I have started using this in lieu of my jack plane. The work piece only requires a little touch up with a smoother and all is well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Look and Durable construction, but ..... I got this tool through AirMiles, as I had only an old Black and Decker Power Planer that always seemed to cut at an angle (bought 2nd hand). So I was really drooling over this new acquisition. However, and I've only tried it out once so far, on some 1X3 board (on 1" side), using the guide in place, and I found that the bottom of the planer seemed to stick, and bump, rather than glide over the board, and I couldn't make an even smooth flat edge on that board. I will try waxing the bottom of the planar to see if it helps. Also, the bottom has some obviously "machined" spots on the shoe (front and back). I assume that this is from the (featured) process of machining the bottom after the planer is assembled - but it almost looks like a mistake, and I find that the bottom did not glide smoothly for me. I will try again sometime, but I was a bit disappointed. Any suggestions? It's too early for me to say if I can recommend this product to a friend or not..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Power I bought the PL2632K Planer to use building some furniture out of some rough quarter-sawn white oak. It seems to work well and have plenty of power but I am very disappointed with the hardness of the aluminum shoe. After just a few passes on clean wood (no staples, nails, etc.) the shoe is very scratched and etched. I do not know how this will effect operations in the future but I would have thought the shoe would have been much harder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Planer I bought this to square up a 12' long 9x12" black walnut beam that I used for a fireplace mantle. It worked great, and could take off material in thick passes without bogging down. Adjustments are simple and I like the long cord. My only complaint is that the chip/dust ports tended to clog up under heavy use but it was easy to clean out and continue work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance and One Suggestion I have been using this planer for a couple of months. Performance and cutting precision are terrific. Dust pickup is amazingly good. Suggestion: add a second guide fence that is adjustable. Inverting and clamping the planer in place would produce a field joiner.
