A highly acclaimed hand-planer delivers high power in a small package. It finds it purpose for both hobbyists’ woodworkers and finish carpenters. Here is our review of the Makita KP0810.
It is not the lightest planer around, but with equitable weight distribution it feels good in your hands. 7.5 AMP motor means more wood can be scraped out in a single pass. The adjustments scales are clear and with 0.1 mm increments precision is taken care off. It is a well-built machine and the drum housing is made of rigid die-cast aluminium.
