    Anyone ever notice when using an electric plan even when u are completely flat with the machine it still puts a bevel…. or am I doing something wrong… I bought a dewalt cordless lately only ever used Stanley hand plane…

  2. Louie With An E on August 29, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Haven’t finished watching yet, but the test seems geared heavily towards the hand planer.

  3. Douglas Rasmussen on August 29, 2022 at 12:52 am

    There is something about the sound of a hand plane creating a perfect curl that is deeply emotionally satisfying. The electric planer is definitely faster, but the sound of a sharp hand plane going through wood just can’t be beat.

    i love this

    If you are diabetic the hand planer will be your best bet. The exercise will help you keep your sugar under control and might save you taking pills to control it.

  6. Buddy LaJuett on August 29, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Lay both planed surfaces on something flat and compare which piece if flat or bowed. I think the power plainer surface will be flatter.

    strange summer? you mean,global warming summer?

    I think this guy is an idiot so I don’t know why I watch him. I guess deep down I have some sort of respect for him, and that’s what true love is

    what I find interesting- When you show the power saw vs… & the power drill vs… & someone in the comments says Auto vs man and all of THOSE examples seem obvious! BUT, i have to admit i did not think of the hand planer vs power the same way!?
    i’m in the market for a power planer because when healthy i often leaned on block planes & hand sanding over routers & planes & card shavers over sanding in many situations. Now i have medical limitations & figured i should pickup an electric planer before i try to make a return to woodworking. But your video was a complete surprise to me! I just did not expect the difference to be so overwhelming. I’m sure your distance to the black line was a little more than most people hope to get off with a hand planer, but still the results were extreme and amusing, I needed that laugh this morning. Think I’ll check out some of your other videos👍 Thanks!- ♿Lisa

    Use power tools whenever possible.

  11. Blinstrubsgal on August 29, 2022 at 12:56 am

    Ok, I’ve got a question! You popped up so here we go…which term is correct: hand plane OR hand planer…I posted a picture of my grandfather’s hand planer (wood coffin-style)(late 1800s vintage.) I’m using as a decorative piece on the kitchen range island. My retired shop teacher/building contractor husband calls it a plane. (He said the electric ones are called planers)
    Should I be editing my Facebook post to “plane” or not…
    Grandfather was a carpenter…. H e l p…

  12. Thomas Glover on August 29, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Well what are planing is it furniture or something for construction that not on display then electric plane would be more efficient but if it furniture you’d want need finesse. My opinion tho

  13. Big Richard on August 29, 2022 at 12:59 am

    i love how you stood there after you were finished using the electric planer and "watched" the other you for a minute hahaha

  14. Melissa92 on August 29, 2022 at 12:59 am

    You are so pleasant to watch!! So entertaining! Thanks for the video!

  15. Waratah David on August 29, 2022 at 1:03 am

    It has to be a big job for it to be worth the noise, mess and hassle of an electric plane.

    West coast man can’t plane board straight or quickly

  18. Santo on August 29, 2022 at 1:10 am

    I didn’t know nutnfancy had a wood working channel

  19. Jose REYES PALACIOS on August 29, 2022 at 1:10 am

    It is really impresive… everytime I have a question related to mi workshop and use Youtube to solve it. The first option is one of your videos, you are really helpfull.

    Please don’t run.

  21. Nicholas Bryan on August 29, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Honestly? I don’t like these two “compared” (even though you did it wasn’t a comparison – it is). A $20 (probably not FINELY tuned) Stanley SMOOTHING plane is like comparing a circular saw to a crosscut saw for ripping.

    How about you try it with a quality jack or scrub plane? Hell, I’ve got a 150 year old quartersawn oak jointer I got for three bucks that would cut, literally, 5x faster.

    I just don’t want people to think they need a power planer because they see this video.

    You should try making a board dead flat with the two….. even your #4 smoother would dominate that one in the right hands

  22. Chris Choir on August 29, 2022 at 1:14 am

    great video, thanks

  23. Lawrence t. Mcguilicutty on August 29, 2022 at 1:15 am

    You even took an exorbitant amount of time plugging it in and slipping on you muffs

  24. ron5935 on August 29, 2022 at 1:15 am

    My new Bosch with carbide blades for outside or rough work like smoothing my deck boards. Depth control is not good, 1/64 increments . Hand planes for precision and quiet and much less mess.

  25. Claudisimooo on August 29, 2022 at 1:15 am

    I remember seeing this video years ago. I’m sure that by now you realize that if you would have used a scrub plane (even a fore plane) you would have probably matched the time of the power planer.

  26. Fuzz on August 29, 2022 at 1:26 am

    I think the hand plane has a modern role of making beautiful surfaces. The #4 is an alternative to sanding. What you needed here was a scrub plane if you wanted apples to apples.

  27. J.T. Franks on August 29, 2022 at 1:28 am

    @wranglerstar what state are you in?

  28. Thomas Milom on August 29, 2022 at 1:28 am

    This was extremely entertaining and actually educational.

  29. tangobayus on August 29, 2022 at 1:30 am

    New hand planers cost more.

  30. Engin Bircan on August 29, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Nice, educational video. Electric planer product introduction and application. You can visit me if you want to see.

    Thank you.

  31. CreeperKing72 on August 29, 2022 at 1:32 am

    Electric planes are for rough work and hand planes are for detail

  32. creative intentions on August 29, 2022 at 1:32 am

    I like a man with good taste in tape measures. I’ve grown to love my Stanley max… I see you have one there on the left. cool video also. power planer rules!

  33. tapefilms on August 29, 2022 at 1:32 am

    As someone who has never used any type of planer before, what would you recommend for a home DIYer looking to plane a door? I just want whatever is easiest to use and least likely to make a mistake with. Thanks 👍

  34. Rick Price on August 29, 2022 at 1:33 am

    It helps to use the right tool for the job. try a #5 or #5 1/2 with a cambered scrub plane blade. I’d take that 1/4" off before the earmuffs went on. Then a #4 to get a glassy smoothness on it.

  35. No Place Like Maui Clothing on August 29, 2022 at 1:33 am

    haha looks like fun . aloha

  36. robin alexander on August 29, 2022 at 1:33 am

    I enjoy a good laugh! Cheers from Tasmania

  37. Jess ric on August 29, 2022 at 1:34 am

    Try a scrub or a fore

  38. Toniche Cavalari on August 29, 2022 at 1:34 am

    When l watched you,
    it seemed l was watching
    "Gerrard Butler" but a more calm, friendly, gentle and kind carpenter version of a good "law abiding citizen" !
    great video amigo !

  39. TRUTH BE TOLD AFRICA on August 29, 2022 at 1:35 am

    you make woodworking so fun entertainingly

    3:30 pet the dog, dawg

  41. boulderingrockboy on August 29, 2022 at 1:38 am

    I just found this video as I’m looking into a power hand planer. Absolutely cracked me up. Great editing Cody!

  42. Burt Bowers on August 29, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Was suprised that with the electric planer that it didnt dip down guage out wood by pressing down hard as what was demonstrated in this video, I tried using craftsman planer practiced on wood when got right at end it burled down into the end of wood.

  43. Tartor Styx on August 29, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Different tools, different purposes. Apples to oranges.

  44. Cal L on August 29, 2022 at 1:40 am

    That’s not what a hand planer is really for IMO. It’s to take off super large humps like a good scrub before using a smoothing/jointing plane. The surface finish is also too different. That said hand plane is not maintenance free either, oil or wax and sharpen.

  45. Chad Moller on August 29, 2022 at 1:43 am

    Freshly sharpener and adjusted on the hand plane … Did you freshly sharpener and adjust the power planer?

    If not, it won by even more 😉

  46. Roberto Fischer on August 29, 2022 at 1:43 am

    With a scrub plane you’d be done in like 5 passes

  47. quinn860 on August 29, 2022 at 1:45 am

    I bought a no 5 hand plane to plane a large butcher block table i made, the result with the hand plane was very nice, but by the time i hade 6 inches planed i couldnt feel my arms, so i bought an electric plane. Less work

  48. Andrew on August 29, 2022 at 1:46 am

    oh now i remember you, i knew i had seen your face before.
    you are that religious fanatic brainwashing your kids into thinking they can find water with magic sticks.

    you are an insane person.

  49. James Steele on August 29, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Why didn’t you compare the quality of the two??

  50. Conors Tool Reviews on August 29, 2022 at 1:49 am

    I’m going with the power plainer everytime
