This bench planer can be used as a surface planer or as a jointer to produce a flat surface along a board's length. When used as a jointer, the machine planes on the narrow edge of boards, using the fence as support, preparing them for use as a butt joint or for gluing into panels. When used as a surface planer, the width of the bed enables you to flatten and level the faces of boards. Surface planing is often performed prior to edge jointing so that the board has a flat reference face for subsequent operations.

Powered by a quiet running 1800W high torque motor you can achieve an ultra smooth finish on softwood, hardwood and composite wood. Mounted in a balanced cutter block, the two high speed steel blades rotate at 12,000rpm, removing up to 3mm depth in one pass. By turning a dial on the infeed table you can micro-adjust the cutting depth to suit the hardness of wood being planed. On softwood you can remove up to the maximum 3mm in one pass and on hardwood and composite wood it is recommended to remove up to 1mm in one pass.

The 155mm wide surface table is made from a precision machined aluminium casting and the side fence tilts through 45° for planing chamfers and angles. The planer blade guard can be moved and locked off both vertically and horizontally to cover the exposed blades. For added safety a no-volt release switch ensures that the motor will not switch back on after a power cut, without the operator pressing the on switch. A 50mm dust port connects to industry standard dust hose fittings, drawing dust directly from the cutter block to ensure an excellent clean workpiece finish. We recommend the application of Rutlands® Machine and Tool Wax to both protect the feed tables and ensure smooth, controlled and friction-free feeding of the workpiece. ©

Far exceeded my expectations

None of these small bench planers are perfect, but I believe this one is far better quality and value than at least most (if not all) other brands. My last bench planer I purchased a few years ago was awful in so many ways and much more expensive than this one.

I did replace the fence with my own plywood one as it would not stay square for more than one pass (and actually very difficult to get square in the first place). Setting up the blades properly is also very tricky, but once set, the finish is worth the time spent messing around. I did know how to set the blades correctly but the small size of everything made it physically a bit of a pain to do. For anyone using one for the first time, the process of blade setting is not well explained in the instructions. Despite the fence quality issue, I now have a machine that is giving me perfectly square pieces on a range of hardwoods. I would definitely recommend to anyone needing a more compact machine who is willing to make some modifications.

Incredibly powerful for its size

I needed a small benchtop planer for the dimensioning of small parts, and this fit the bill perfectly. Incredibly powerful for its size and took minimal setup out of the box. I gave the beds a coat of machine wax and once buffed this left a lovely slick surface. Very pleased I went with this and would certainly reccomend to others looking for a less bulky, obstructive machine for the workshop.

Ideal small shop tool

I have been looking for a bench top planer for a while and after quite a bit or research went for the Rutlands model. First impressions are great. After some simple set up it is giving the simple flat jointed sides that were taking me hours with a hand plane. I would thoroughly recommend for a small shop/ garage set up.

Very good planer

The planer is very good quality for the price, it has become an excellent addition to my tool collection and I highly recommend the planer,
The bed and fence are the two features I am impressed with most as the fence is also accurate a all with the bed being completely flat, it allows for the highest level of accuracy

Smooth, ripple free finishes

The twin blade cutter block rotates at 12,000rpm, leaving a smooth finish when planing both hard and softwoods.
