No 3 - Bosch PHO 1500 Summary Review

94% buyer satisfaction from over 1,200+ customer reviews

  • 96% buyer satisfaction rating
  • Measures 18.2 x 37.2 x 19.4 cm; 2.4 Kilograms
  • Corded 240 Volt model

  • Rebating depth: 0-8 mm

This is another great planer from Bosch that is really a cheaper, entry level, tool. It's not as powerful as the model above but can plane nearly as deeply.

It is built for home use or the occassional DIY job and it is perfectly capable of that. There have been plenty of buyers and you can see that the reviews are great.

No 4 - TACKLIFE EPN01A 710W Electric Hand Planer Summary Review

94% buyer satisfaction from over 250+ customer reviews

  • 94% buyer satisfaction rating
  • 30 x 18 x 15.5 cm; 3.29 Kilograms
  • Cordled Planer model
  • Planning depth 2 mm
  • Depth increments from 0 inch to 5/16 inch (2 mm)
  • 6 Amp motor and blade drum with two double-sided blades rotate at 16500 RPM
  • The aluminum front and rear shoes will not deform
  • Comes with a dust bag that can be fitted on either side
  • Can also be connected to a vacuum both sides as well
  • Has the facility to create angled chamfers

The Tacklife is a very powerful Planer, delivering up to 16,500 rpm and is able to plane 2mm. Many corded versions can manage 4mm so you would need to run over twice with this model.

This wouldn't put me off as you would be paying about 3 or 4 times the price to get the 4mm. You are getting a bargain here.

A very quick video review

We have looked over all the video reviews and found this great short presentation on these power tools. It gives you an instant idea of what to expect as well as telling you all the features and spec in and easy to understand format.

I hope you enjoy watching it as I always think its much better to see a tool in action rather than just reading about it or seeing pictures. This guy is particularly good at explaining the features and he is well known for demonstrating tools.
