Power and Performance
The PC60THPK's 6 amp motor delivers 16,500 RPM of power for a variety of applications, including planing wood planks, doors and joists, as well as, chamfering or profiling edges. It also has the power to make a 5/64-inch cut in one pass max. Outfitted with two types of blades, you can choose between high-speed steel (HSS) blades or carbide blades depending on your needs. While HSS blades can be used in more aggressive situations, such as planing nail embedded wood, carbide blades can be used for finer construction, such as furniture or boat making.
The planer's depth adjuster has 10 positive stops positioned every 1/16 of an inch up to 5/64-inch, helping you accurately gauge how much material you're removing. To ensure level and square results, the planer's 11-1/2-inch cast aluminum shoe is furnished with three chamfer grooves, which enable you to make the most common bevel cuts with ease. Finally, a kickstand under the aluminum shoe helps protect the blades and work surface when the unit is not in-use.
Comfort and Convenience
Positioned behind the tool and close to the work surface for control, the planer's handle is equipped with a comfortable over molded grip to reduce any vibration. The unit also incorporates a depth dial with the same overmolded grip at the front of the tool. The PC60THPK is also equipped with replaceable motor brushes to help extend the tool's life, as well as a replaceable belt drive system for quick servicing and a minimum of downtime. A 6-foot high grade cord provides added flexibility in cold weather.
For a clean worksite, the PC60THPK features a thick mesh filtered dust bag that captures wood debris and dust particles. A practical, dual dust extraction lever enables you to switch the exit port to the left or right side of the planer, which provides flexibility in any application. The dust extraction ports are also vacuum compatible and the unit comes with an adaptor that can connect directly to most worksite vacuums.
This Porter-Cable tool is backed by three-year limited warranty covering any defects due to faulty materials or workmanship (from the date of purchase). It's also covered by Porter-Cable's one-year free service contract, where Porter-Cable will maintain the tool and replace worn parts caused by normal use--for free.

I really didn't know what to expect. I have a 18" power planer (the boards were too wide to fit edge-wise!), and I had read reviews of very expensive and heavy powered hand-planers. Wow! What a great surprise this little phand planer was....
This little planer blew through that filthy maple with amazing speend leaving a finish-ready surface. ...so I figured since I hadn't wrecked the planer ...yet...so I would try planing the top of one of my work benches of years of accumulated glue, epoxy, paint, etc. Again, the results were terrific and even after what I considered abusive treatment, it left a very nice smooth surface.
So I decided to really see what this little hand power planer could do....I got a 4' wide elm end-cut slabe from a tree removal
service working across the street from my home...it took three strong guys and a heavy duty appliance cart to get the slab across the street to my garage. This was chain saw-cut green elm.... a woodworker's nightmare. But I wanted to make an outdoor table out of it. So I took that planer and went at it...in just over an hour I finished one side...then flipped it over and did the other side. I had bought new knives for the planer before undertaking this slab, but I never needed them.
This tool has amazing power and leaves a great finish....It does take some practice to end up with a final-sanding finish. And you can't take off more than about 1/16 at a time, so you have to be reasonable. But I really thought I would burn the motor out on that green elm slab...but it went on and did the other side and is still going strong.
Absolutely wonderful tool within the limitation of its relatively narrow cut. I strongly recommend this tool. It is the bargain of the decade!..
(April 9) I have changed my rating on this unit to a 5 star. Before returning the unit I looked at the planer more closely and found I was able to adjust the front shoe height setting by popping the cap on the adjusting knob, removing the exposed screw and removing the top half of the adjusting knob. By loosening 2 more exposed screws I was able to turn the knob to the proper setting, then retightened the 2 screws. After planing some pine lumber I am now completely satisfied. I don't know why the Porter Cable tech person said I couldn't field adjust the unit as it was very straight forward.
