14 Dec WEN Cordless Power Plane with 4 Ah Battery and Charger
The new 20V Max brushless and cordless power plane (model 20653) is listed at $134.99 and is currently on sale as an introductory offer at $108.97. Perfect for micro-adjusting stubborn doors and straightening board edges, it delivers up to 26,000 cuts per minute (two knives). The brushless motor provides lots of run time and lasts longer with less maintenance than brushed alternatives.
The tool planes up to 3-1/4” on a pass, and a simple turn of the front knob adjusts the cutting depth up to 1/8” max with positive stops every 1/128”. The base plate includes a V-shaped groove for starting bevel and chamfer cuts. An included rabbeting guide adjusts anywhere from 0” to 11/16” to allow for rabbets up to an inch deep. A parallel fence provides an accurate and straight cut by making sure passes are directly parallel to the edge of the wood (this is a must-have for planing door edges, trim and board edges). A clever little kickstand protects both the blade and the workpiece in between uses. It keeps the blade elevated from the surface of the project.
The included 4.0 amp-hour lithium-ion battery delivers consistently powerful performance at any level of charge, features an onboard LED charge gauge, and is cross-compatible with the entire WEN 20V Max Cordless Lithium-Ion Power Tool line. A dust bag collects loose shavings, and the port could be hooked up to a shop vacuum. The plane comes with a two-year warranty, a stocked inventory of replacement parts, and above average customer service.
