Shop Fox W1742 15" Planer April 8, 2015
Reviewer: T. Bush from AL  
I waited a year before I would comment on this machine. This makes my third and final planer. This is one excellent machine. I have ran mostly hard wood thru this machine. It has a two speed gear box on it. You get your board all most ready then you shift it into low gear and a couple of light passes thru, and the board is almost ready to stain. That is how smooth it gets it. My other two planers are not even close to this one. Yes it is a little loud, but most of them are. The thing weighs almost 600 lbs. With the cast iron rollers it moves like it weighed hardly anything. I have yet had to sharpen the blades on it. like I said above I run mostly hard wood thru it. I would say I have run almost 1500 board feet thru it with no problems at all. The only thing that I wish it would of come with is a helical head on it. That way when I do have to sharpen the blades I wouldn't have to mess setting them. All in all this is one great machine, and you will not be disappointed you bought one.
