Sometimes referred to as a "jointer", the surface planer is absolutely essential to any professional woodworking project. The planer machine is used for straightening wood, which might be chipped or twisted, by placing one side of a piece of solid timber and one face making sure that they are both straight and square to each other. The accuracy of this planer machine is vital to ensure the overall precision and quality of the item you are making which relies on both the face edge and the face side being square to each other for an accurate fit. The machine can also be used for chamfering and bevelling with the addition of a couple of additions.
