I purchased this planner as a impulse buy from the Bosch -CPO website. When it came in I put the box on a shelf somewhere, and felt guilty.
Then, I got a real good deal on rough lumber, so I had to take it out of the box. the tool impressed me with its rock solid feel, this no toy, this tool means business. The first few tries were not so good, but I started to get reasonable results in a few days.
My skill at using the tool improved rapidly, the trick is keep the little arrows pointed straight, and let the toll do the rest of the work.
Now I use the Bosch Planer almost every day. you can set it as small as 1/16 th of an inch, which is like using a belt sander, but faster.
