Honestly, the Makita KP0810 planer is an amazing tool; it has a 7.5 AMP motor which actually gives it more power than some other large sized planers available in the market.
The planer has a cutter head with two blades that can plane up and 5/32 inch deep and it's a rate of 16000RPM. This is a handy planer not only because of light weight and its size but also as it's a rubber handle, which helps to ensure the hands are protected during use. The lock off switches provides usability and added safety as it's ambidextrous. This really is very valuable to me as I have a tendency to lend my planer.
The hand planer's convenience comes not only from its light weight (7.3 pounds) but also from its raised base that protects the wood being worked on and the blades from unnecessary damage. It's a planer that is highly durable and that i consider its durability may result from the fact that it has an aluminum housing that protects the planer blades so ensuring you don't have to always replace them. One other thing that is so amazing concerning this planer is how it works nicely on damp/newly cut wood, just as efficiently as it does on dry wood. The front base also features three options of creating a groove on wood; the choices are about at 1.4mm, 3mm and 4mm depths.
It's a great planer that ensures your security, comfort and shields the work piece. It is not unsuitable for construction workers to use particularly with door installations and framing. Makita certainly produced a great quality planer. Not only does the planer work great but also looks magnificent in the somber Makita blue colour. Besides, they even provide a one year guarantee using a 30day money back offer in case you are dissatisfied with the planer. Personally I do not have anything to complain.
When I first started using this is to be totally honest wasn't expecting too much. This is largely down to the fact that I'm a small 'Brand name snob' as it pertains to power tools, as I've said, choosing more for well known brands, particularly when it comes to what I consider to be the more dangerous range of power tools. What I mean by dangerous is those tools that will rip your arm off faster than a crocodile in a tub, including chain saws, jigsaws, mitre saws, electric planes and these circular saws.
But after using this for some time I realised that, though the name wasn't the most popular out there, the genuine saw was like any other I'd used, even though it didn't have all the bells and whistles on it.
It will appear on the more heavy list of power saws but it's this weight which actually helps in the cutting motion. Mainly to how the saw's weight keeps the blade down and to the work through what ever I am cutting, whilst I push.
Plus, as when this is doing what it's designed to be doing, something is being cut through by that, it rests in the job your cutting so you don't have to be concerned about its weight.
It's enough power to do most DIY jobs, even going as far as to say that it can also manage a few of the more 'professional' occupations.
I especially like the simple to reach the along with trigger 'lock' button that can be reached with the thumb in order to 'lock in' the gun trigger in the on position. This is perfect for when your on a longer reduction and perhaps have where holding the trigger can be a little tricky at times, to manoeuvre yourself.
Then there is the simple to use angle cutting function, which will be done simply by loosening the 'butterfly' nuts on the front and back, moving the 'foot plate' using the angle numbers to the front. Then re-tighten the nuts... just be sure the nuts are tightened completely so that the 'foot-plate' doesn't slip when you are half way through a cut.
But if you are able to live without the dust being sucked away from what ever you are cutting then don't worry about it. Just be prepared for a bit of sweeping up after you have finished cutting.
It's not just the saw itself that boast the cutting skill, it's the blade too, which is supposed to get dual bevelled teeth with a slightly different shape than other circular saw blade which is designed to give a finer, better, simpler cut and provides the blade an opportunity to continue twice as long as other blades.
I would have to state that if you could get this for less than GBP100 then it's well worth seriously considering purchasing. It has the power you have to get the job done in no time at all whilst being not as dangerous as any other power saw that's out there.
