From The Manufacturer

Remember when you brought those old jagged boards back to life? The WEN 13-Inch Benchtop Thickness Planer repurposes rough and worn wood to give it an exceptionally smooth finish. Our spiral cutterhead utilizes 26 staggered HSS blades to provide a perfect finish to hard and soft woods alike. The powerful 15-amp motor rotates the cutterhead over 10,000 RPM at a 26 feet per minute feed rate. Plane boards up to 13 inches wide and 6 inches thick with ease. The onboard planing gauge helps inform users about the amount of material being removed during each pass. Combine that with the heavy duty cast iron base for a sturdy planer that does not walk or wobble during operation. The handy depth adjustment knob makes it easy to take off anywhere from 0 to 1/8 of an inch per pass. The adjustable dust port removes chips and sawdust from the workpiece and blasts them out of the way. The onboard depth stop allows users to achieve an exact workpiece thickness with maximum precision. This package also includes height-adjustable infeed and outfeed tables to limit snipe while providing extra support to your workpiece during planing. Easily mount the planer to a work surface or stand (such as the WEN MSA658 Planer Stand) using the predrilled base holes. Compatible with the WEN BP510H Replacement Spiral Blades. And because it’s a WEN product, this planer comes backed by a nationwide network of skilled service technicians. Remember when your planer could handle even the hardest of woods? Remember WEN.
