BEGINNERS Guide to Using an Electric Planer.
BEGINNERS Guide to Using an Electric Planer.
How to Use an Electric Planer. A Beginners Guide. The Electric Planer would have to be one of the handiest tools in the workshop. It’s basically a hand plane on steroids which makes them super fast and highly efficient!
Like all power tools, the electric planer can be a scary tool for the newly initiated. In this video, l hope to build up your confidence and take away the fear factor when using the planer.
The planers come in both corded and battery-powered models. I’m a bit old school and have a corded planer, that way l always have 100% power at all times.
The good thing about the corded model is that you can pick up a good one for a reasonably cheap price compared to the good quality battery-powered models.
I hope you find this video useful and continue to grow in confidence when it comes to using power tools of all types.
I hope you enjoy it 👍😁🇦🇺

very nice video thanks for sharing sir
Thank-you for a great video. Safety tips and ersatz DIY tools were a great idea. I will employ some or all of the tips 🙂 you suggested.
BRILLIANT, THANK-YOU MATE…
Stupid metal staples have ruined many of my planer blades.
Power tools are a game changer, they cost less of the investment compared to machines, the only machine I need is a shaper or spindle moulder. That’s good to go for anything in a shop.
I enjoyed the hand planer tips and even the duck joke (quack. LOL), but your makeshift leg vise and bench dog vise blew my mind. I couldn’t hit that sub button any faster. Cheers!
Pipe clamp vice is handy, nice tip
What’ far’ what’ far’ what’ far’
Tio (Uncle in Spanish) Knacker, always coming through with great tutorials
I just bought this exact model.
I know nothing before this video about electric planners… learned a lot… also great advice on pipe clamps and homemade vise’s… excellent ideas!!!
This is the most informative episode of Flight Of The Concord I’ve seen yet. 👍
Great like from România
Tks for this video
Great video! I’m using an electric planer for the first time to restore a bunch of old scaffold boards – this has been super useful!
From across the pond in the good ole USA, thank you! I just subscribed!
Good information. Thanks!
They are great tools but used wrong can create a nightmare for the user or the work. Start slow and easy.
Great video!! I’ve been doing woodworking, both professional and DIY, for 50 years. I’ve never ever seen the tricks with the pipe clamps through the table top or the legs. It just goes to show you can still learn stuff every day.
Thanks for the great video.
BTW… don’t quit your day job just yet. You’ll starve to death if you rely on those jokes to put food on the table.
U are amazing . 😇🌾🍀🍃👍👏✟
What kind of sponge is that in the back!? Boogie for life.
Like the clamp tips, thanks 👍✌🥃
Great video Shane! I noticed in the video you only used the planer on the edges. Can you use the planer on the surface? I’m wanting to plane down some wood that has a slight cup. A thickness planer would probably be best but those are expensive so I’m trying to find a cheaper way to go. Or would I be better off using a router and jig to remove some of the cupping? Thanks for any help mate. Fantastic video! Keep up your awesome work. As for the dad joke…um… keep working on those. 😆😆 Thanks again Shane. 🇺🇲
What’ far’ what’ far’ what’ far’ USA what’ far’ NATO what’ far’ England
Very good explanation on how to use the plane must always be carefully when using electrical power tools
Great and informational video. Super cute guy too. 🙂
Never watched this before. I almost chocked when he said "Uncle Nackers here".
I subscribed, good content.
LIKE FROM BRAZIL
Your video really heped me out
Knack’s great tutorial ( bother one) really like the channel mate .
I’m beginning to build up my wood working / power tool arsenal, would you recommend go corded or cordless for paining ??
( By the way , terrible Joke 😆🙈) 👍
That’s not saw dust….. it’s man glitter
Came here to learn about electric planing and got a bonus solution to my clamping conundrum. Nice one mate!
1. Pipe clamp vice deserves a video of its own.
2. How to avoid streak marks when using an electric planer for face planing as opposed to edge planing?
Great tips on securing work pieces.
I actually laughed at the duck joke lol
How do you dig out a nail? Without butchering the wood?
Any technique to slant surface wider than the plane width, like 6 inches ?
This is EXCELLENT! I’m comfortable with most power tools, but these planers have always scared the hell out of me. Now I need to use one for scarfing plywood, and I feel a lot better about it thanks to your clear, sensible presentation. Thank you!
Pinpoint metal detectors are under $30 and will give a heads up on non ferrous metals too
Since we’re doing high grade jokes:
What do you call a backpack that ducks use?
Thank you so much, helpful as always
Thanks for this video, always wondered about the correct way to use an electric planer.
Fantastic tutorial – well done!
I love the clarity of your work, Shane!
Nice vise tips!!!
