DEWALT Thickness Planer, Two Speed, 13-Inch
What Is A Planer Used For?
Now that you know what a planer is, you’re probably wondering what it’s used for. A planer can be used for a variety of tasks, but it’s most commonly used to create even, consistent thicknesses in wood boards. This is especially useful when working with rough-cut lumber or reclaimed wood, as it can help create a more uniform look.
Planers can also be used to create angled or beveled edges on boards, as well as to smooth out rough surfaces. If you’re working with wood that has a lot of knots or is otherwise difficult to work with, running it through a planer can sometimes make the job easier.
Of course, a planer is just one tool in a woodworker’s arsenal, and it’s not always the right tool for the job. In some cases, you might be better off using a hand plane or even sanding by hand. But if you’re looking to create even, consistent thicknesses in your boards, a planer is probably the best tool for the job.

What Are The 3 Types Of Sandpaper?
You’ve probably seen sandpaper before. It’s a thin sheet of paper or fabric with abrasive material glued to one side. Sandpaper is used to smooth wood, remove paint, and polish metal surfaces.
There are three main types of sandpaper: aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, and zirconia alumina. Each type is best suited for different tasks.
Aluminum oxide sandpaper is the most common type. It’s made from a natural mineral that is fused with synthetic materials. It’s durable and can be used on a variety of surfaces.
Silicon carbide sandpaper is harder than aluminum oxide. It’s man-made and ideal for sanding wood and removing paint.
Zirconia alumina sandpaper is the hardest type of sandpaper. It’s made from a synthetic material and is ideal for polishing metal surfaces.
