Using a Makita Planer

The Makita hand planer sits on a foot, or sole pad, like a hand plane Like a jointer, the planer has blades mounted on a cutter head or drum that spins at 14,000 rpm, cutting wood equal to the height difference between the front and rear feet.

Get the most out of the device by understanding the correct way to hold the planer and move it. Correct management of your body guarantees the stability and the best results in preparation.

Balance means standing apart with your feet in a posture you can find comfort at the workpiece throughout the complete tool transfer. Each planer pass involves a stability rhythm and a hand pressure:

  • Start the machine, let the motor reach full speed, then make contact with the job easier for the plane and drive it forward steadily.
  • Pressure balance between the handle of the tool and the front knob as both planer soles touch the work.
  • Hold the initial front grip pressure on as the planer reaches the workpiece.
  • Apply greater control to “pick” the rear handle when moving the tool off the job. Stop over-reaching at the end of a pass; the front shoe drops off the wood and causes the blades to take an uneven bite off the wood end.

Safety Tips:

  • Upon turning off the tool, protect yourself and the work — and the blades — by putting the hand planer’s front shoe upon a block of wood as the spinning cutter head stops.
  • Look out for the speed and ease with which you use your hand planer when your neighbors see it! To keep track of all the lenders you will need to have a sign-out folder.
  • As with all power tools, wearing appropriate safety equipment protects the eyes and ears.
  • Work safely above your head by putting walk planks between two ladders, in line with your cutting path.
