Makita 3-1/2" N1900B Planer (N1900B) Review

By

The Purchase

I bought my Makita 3-1/2" planer (N1900B) on ebay.

The Real World

June 23rd, 2007

There is something to be said for having the right tool for the job. I had a few doors to plane and this worked great. I also had 400-500 feet of 3/4" MDF that had a rough edge from the table saw. Sanding them was taking too long so I tried the planer, set just deep enough to take the saw marks off. After the planer I only had to run the sander down them once to get a nice edge.

Pros:

  • Well balanced (side to side and front to rear)
  • Long cord
  • Cuts smooth (unless you run with it)

Cons:
  • The plastic case is supposed to hold the guide in the lid. It only stays in the lid long enough to shut it.
  • The dust bag is optional
  • The fence/guide is pretty lame

Specs

  • Motor: 120V AC, 4.0 Amp
  • Double edged tungsten carbide mini blades
  • 2 Blade cutterhead produces 30,000 cuts per minute
  • Well balanced with front and rear grips for better control
