- Steel City 13" Deluxe Portable Planer with Helical Head 40200H
- Brand: Steel City | Category: Planers
I love my Steel City helical head planer. After reading many reviews on every portable planer, I went with Steel City. Reading some of the reviews on it, just about everyone said that it is was over protected with grease/oil.
I took off all my blades and soaked in mineral spirits overnight and then used a toothbrush to clean the cylinder itself. Even after soaking, cleaning I still get some oil residue 6 months later, but slowly going away. Just be patient and clean as best you can after a couple of uses. I get a lot on my chrome and just use 409 and a rag to clean it up.
