Product Description

Color: NA

Amazon.com

This well-designed planer offers fast stock removal and the smoothest finish--exactly what we expected from Bosch. The powerful 6.5 amp motor runs the versatile two-blade Woodrazor system at 16,500 rpm with a protective shield that covers the section of blade that's not in use. The fence itself deserves applause--bevels are accurate and easy to adjust. We love the chip ejection as well. Too many times, we've tried tools with an exhaust system that might as well not be there, but this one actually moves the removed stock and it's multidirectional! Deep cuts are possible in just one pass without bogging or chatter. There's even a spring-loaded park rest stand that protects blade and workpiece. The saw is a special shape that allows easy start-up in the middle of a workpiece. Accidental starts are a thing of the past because of the lock-off release button. Bosch thought of everything; we're impressed. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

This tool works great, no complaints, well designed, rugged, easy to use.
Steve Pence
It did a great job in the field and saved us time and money trying to get our expensive door to work correctly.
Happy Grandma
Zero setting removes material and the sole plate is completely out of alignment.

Typically, I use a power planer for installing doors, surfacing boards that are too large for a stationary planer and sometimes for removing finishes. This tool excels at all of those tasks.

Bosch blades are the best I have found. Blade-change is easy and fast with no alignment problems.

While considering a new planer, I also tried the Festool planers. There are three advantages to the Festool planers:
1- Slightly better dust collection. I have to give this to Festool... They always consider dust-collection in their designs.
2- Micro adjustment of cutting-depth.
3- The ability to cut rabbets.

The dust collection advantage was too small to justify the grossly higher price. This Bosch tool adapts to my cheap shop-vac and removes dust 95% as well as the Festool.

I do not need the super-precise depth-of-cut feature because I use tape shims on the front sole of this planer. That is fast, secure, cheap and often more accurate than mechanical-adjustments.

Although the ability to cut rabbets is nifty, I always do that with a router or a hand-plane.
So, none of those features was enough to justify the MUCH higher expense of Festool planers.

After reading other reviews I must respond to two negative comments.

One reviewer pointed out that the fence leaves something to be desired. I agree, this fence is not perfect. But I have never used these types of fences "as-is." All the professionals I know attach a wood or MDF face to these types of fences, to prevent marring the work. Then we shim the face with tape for a nearly perfect 90-degrees: + / - .001". That is plenty accurate enough, even for fine cabinet-work. It is more reliable and secure than any mechanical adjustment mechanism.

Bought this planer the other day to do some doors. It was all I expected and more. Very strong motor - never even appeared to bog down. Good balance. Depth control is very easy to use and accurate. I actually own a Dewalt and a Makita. I bought the Bosch for the features (i.e. the fully adjustable fence, the adjustable chip deflector that actually comes with a WORKABLE shop vac adapter - THAT is great!) and the reputation. I have not been disapointed. The Bosch is the best of the three. Until I got the Bosch I was pretty well satisfied with the Makita with the Dewalt pulling up the rear, but the Bosch is the best of the three by far. Strongest motor, Woodrazor carbide blades, shop vac adapter, and that great fence. You will use the fence. It can be set at 90 degrees or any other angle you want - and there is an adjustagble rabbeting stop that basically lets you take it about as deep and wide as you want. By the way, USE a shop vac with this. It will fill up your shop with shavings in a heartbeat - but with a vac hooked up, not a one hit the floor. Overall, this is a super tool at a very reasonable price. Oh yeah, it's also relative quiet. This one's a keeper.

Color Name: NA Verified Purchase
After reading all the reviews here, I bought the 1594K planer expecting nothing but the best. I was sold by the chip eject direction feature, power, smoothness, and my previous positive experiences with Bosch tools. To me the mis-aligned shoes mentioned elsewhere seemed like a short-term QC problem that had been resolved, judging by all the positive reveiws.

I was concerned when I received my new planer and saw machining marks that were less than confidence-inspiring. The machining marks on about 30% of one side were obviously not machined the same way as the rest of the sole plate. It looked like the tail end of the cutting tool was doing the work in that area, as the tool marks were arcing in the opposite direction. So I began to doubt the rear sole plate was flat.

I contacted Bosch via e-mail on this matter. They responded quickly, and were extremely helpful. They sent me a new rear sole plate and forwarded my comments to a senior technical advisor to look into the matter. They also requested digital pictures (that I offered in my e-mail) to help them investigate the matter further.

After looking at the tool more closely, the rear sole plate WAS ACTUALLY FLAT and fully functional. So, this issue turned out to be nothing more than a cosmetic complaint, but Bosch listened to my concerns and did everything in their power to make me happy. Customer service this good is rare, and I applaud Bosch on their efforts.

Another thing I'd like to mention is that the planer kit comes with a chip bag, not the vacuum hose adapter. This typo appears in more than one place, but it's a fact that you get the chip bag instead of the VAC002 hose attachment.

And, yes, the planer works great too. I'll let the other reviews speak to that!

I'm a general contractor, generally working on remodels or refurbishments. Recently I decided to purchase my first hand power planer. I will be using the machine for stud straightening, deck trimming, door/doorway adjustment, cabinet scribing, subfloor leveling ... and whatever else comes up. All-around functionality is my #1 criteria; expense is secondary, but important.

There are several different types of planers, as you will find out when you Google "planer". A "thickness planer" is used on boards to shape them into a uniform thickness. A "door planer" or "edge planer" is the kind we are talking about here. Searching on "planer" will bring up lots of false leads: authors, books, celebrities, floor-model tools, etc.. While most specific, "door planer" or "power hand planer" don't produce a whole lot of hits (other than advertisements).

After about 6 hours of on-line research as well as a review of JLC's July 2005 issue I've discovered many currently available models. They are, in alphabetical order:

Black & Decker 7696 - low-end stuff made by Dewalt... I skipped.

Bosch 1594K (planer and case/kit)

Bosch 3365 (a "stripped down" 1594 without carry case or fence)

Delta - none

Dewalt DW680K (planer & case/kit)

Festool HL850E (planer & case/kit)

Hitachi F30A (no longer sold)

Hitachi P20SBK (planer & case/kit)

Jet - none

Makita N1900B (planer & case/kit)

Makita N1902X7 (planer, no case - alot like N1900B)

Milwaulkee - none

Porter-Cable 9125 (planer, case/kit)

Porter-Cable 9118 (planer, case/kit)-- older, well reguarded

Ryobi L1121 (not much info...no longer sold?
