Electric planers are widely used in carpentry!
They are suitable for fitting doors, carving the edges, making rabbets.
These power tools create a flat, smooth surface on the wood.
The planer can also be useful for field dressing or chamfering edges. These machines can be equipped with one, two or three irons. The size and power of the planes vary according to the number of irons. They can be battery powered or wired. The depth of pass (the amount of material to be removed) from the machines is often adjustable.
