The power planer isn’t the only power tool in my shop but if I ever decided to go far more towards the hand tool side of things I think it would be one of the last 3 power tools I owned alongside a lathe and bandsaw and even the lathe there are good human powered options to build/buy. Being able to thickness a board by hand is a good skill to have but it’s hard work and something that shops 150 years ago would give to the junior apprentices. Given that I don’t have a abundance of apprentice labor a power planer is the next best thing.
