When it comes to carpentry, one of the essential tools is an electric planer. These are a critical component of any project because they are the secret to a perfectly smooth finish as well as some architectural flair, both of which can take any project to the next level.
What is a Planer?
In carpentry, a planer is mainly used to remove rough or excess wood off the sides of the board. This is an essential tool because it allows you to achieve a smooth, professional-grade finish on any project. Modern electric planers have evolved to include more options such as rabbeting and precise depth setting for a better, more efficient work experience. The rotary handle depth adjustment allows for a precise depth setting to 1/256″ (1/10 mm) up to 9/64″ (3.5 mm). If you don’t currently have one or are in need of an upgrade, the Festool Planer HL 850 E-F-Plus is an excellent choice.
A rabbet is a channel, groove, or recess cut out of the edge or face of a surface that is meant to be a connection point. The Festool Planer HL 850 E-F-Plus has unlimited rabbeting, allowing it to make precise recesses at any depth for maximum flexibility and efficiency. The rabbet depth stop that is included with the Festool Planer HL 850 E-F-Plus is an important accessory for ensuring that your rabbet grooves are picture-perfect and provide a precise fit for every connection. A sturdy, well-fitted project is a source of pride and will prove durable over many years.
Multiple Head Options
The Festool Planer HL 850 E-F-Plus doesn’t just promise the structural integrity of your carpentry, but also architectural flair. There are multiple head options available for varying architectural designs and effects that will elevate the look of each piece you create, allowing for a signature flair or just a little extra visual interest to take it from basic to beautiful.
