We've taken one of the most popular planers ever and built it into an Extreme Machine! Just look at the features on this monster. Solid cast iron extension tables make this smooth surface ground planer table just short of 5' long! You can't get better support from a planer than that. The large handwheel makes table movement silky smooth and the super rigid pedestal holds the power controls at a convenient height. The extra heavy-duty welded steel base also makes for a very stable machine.
