I am a professional remodeler and in the past five years I have burnt out three Delta planers. Twice, the feed rollers gave up and the last one apparently suffered a major internal failure. I have had the Makita now for two months and it has been flawless as I would expect. We plane some tough stuff like Ipe so we definitely give these things a workout. If it is still flawless in a year, I will give it a fifth star. I appreciate the ergonomics of this well, thought out machine. I am glad that Makita has eliminated a cutterhead lock. I personally couldn't care less about "snipe", of which this machine creates very little. We plane long and then cut to size on the miter saw. Don't you? I do have one question ..., is there any reason why I can't buy replacement blades online?

Okay, so I'm a year late, this is one VERY good planer! It continues to perform like new, with only blade changes. I have it hooked up in my shop and have run hundreds of feet of maple, pine, poplar, Ipe, oak, even plywood and MDF. It just does its thing. Very uneventful, I like that. That's what I pay for. The only downside is that it makes justifying a 15" Powermatic planer difficult!

So here were are now, its 2004 and the little bugger just keeps going! I may never get that new planer. What can I say, after, I don't know, five or six thousand feet of various hardwoods, no changes to date! See you next year!

What can I say? Late again! So here we are almost eight years later and the little SOB just keeps running! New blades, vacuum occasionally, lube the posts if I think of it and it just keeps going. If it ever dies, I'll let you know!

I received my new Makita 2012B Portable Planer for Christmas. I had researched all the available models and felt that the Makita had the edge on paper. Putting it to the reality check test, a friend and I ran over 100 board feet of quartersawn white oak through the planer, then finished up by using the system to shave down a walnut inlay in ash. I was really impressed by the performance! No snipe, very smooth surfaces, quiet operation, and ease of use were at the top of my list of favorable impressions. We especially liked the depth stop option for reproducibly machining multiple boards to the same thickness. Too early to tell how the planer will hold up with time. I will write a follow-up after a year of use. The only objection I have to the tool is that for the price, Makita should include the dust hood. It is essential and has to be ordered separately from Makita.

I spent a lot of time looking at portable planers. They all had something I liked and didn't. The Makita 2012NB had everything I was looking for. Lower the cutting head down until the depth pin moves, set the dial indicator to zero, then lower the cutting head to the depth you want. Easy, fast, accurate and quiet. It has an adjustable rod for making plaining more than one board to the same thickness and can be set to any thickness you want. The interna-lock head keeps snipe to a minimum and I'm happy not to have to mess with a head lock. It seems to be constructed to last a long time but I haven't used it long enough to say for certain yet. It is more expensive but I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again. The only complaint I have is for the price why didn't Makita include dust shut with dust collector connection?

Verified Purchase
I was drawn to the Makita because of the many positive reviews here at Amazon. It is indeed a good unit, but owners have noted a few difficulties.

Foremost is the problem with collecting all the shavings. The shavings from a board are 500 times the volume of the original wood. This fluffy mass will clog up every place there is a restriction or a rough transition. It will fill up your collection container really fast and if that fills up, then the air flow slows down and the entire duct will clog up. When that happens, you have to stop, disassemble and clear things.

The only cure is to make sure all of your ducts are connected with smooth, snag-free fittings and that you stop and empty your collection container before it fills up. This does slow you down, but it is the nature of the machine, of any brand, and being pre-emptive will save you time in the long run.

See my reviews of the Makita collection hood and dust control for more detail.

Some users complain about having to pull their wood through, slow cutting and similar problems. The secret is to wax the bed, the smooth part under the cutter. I use CRC lube, sprayed onto a towel and applied sparingly to the metal. Do know that products that contain silicon will contaminate the wood and prevent proper finishing. Some use Johnson's wax. This step makes all the difference in the world, but you have to do it fairly often because if you do not, then the problem will appear while you are in the middle of a board and make divots in your work.

It seems as though the wood actually sticks to the bottom plate when it is pressed down and the smooth rollers just cannot push the wood through.

This problem is more prevalent with soft woods like pine and redwood, and much less so with maple.
