What size board will this take?

Asked by: STRMCHSR
6" thick. I figures someone should answer your question since lowes depends on the manufacturer and customers and doesn't even try to answer. 6 months is not acceptable.

Craftsman 15 A Benchtop Planer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from More Than Decent For The Price [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a pretty good planer for the price. Initial setup took only a few minutes and is pretty straight forward. My first test runs of stock was putting about 2in of snipe at about 1/16th deep on both ends but after fine tuning the tables it's become negligible. Also there is quite bit of slop in the cut height adjustment so make sure that you always crank past your measurement by a 1/2 turn and the back it up to your desired height. The only thing I don't like about it so far is that there doesn't seem to be any adjustment for the rollers (nothing listed in the manual).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working completely on 2nd use Very disappointed. Purchased 4 days ago. Just a DIY guy and reviews weren’t bad, so I went for it. Was so excited cause this was my first planer but the excitement was short lived. As an initial test, I ran about 4 quarter-inch soft pine boards that I had already ripped on my table saw, and results were great. Then came today, second use, running some 2x4 pines and it went to a complete stop, never to turn on again. Luckily I kept the box and everything intact. I just returned it for a refund. I thought about exchanging for the same one, in case this was a one-off, but decided I will go for a better brand after I get my refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from X-mas Gift-Craftsman Customer Service Still good Was a good gift, BUT when adjusting the table, the screws where installed so tight that one of them stripped. I reported it to Craftsman and they suggested I use the right tool to loosen, I replied that I used a Craftsman Philips screwdriver. After going back and forth by email for a week or more they sent 4 new screws and a new table. I now should be able to able to fix the issue. While waiting for replacement parts, I was still able to level the tables and use the Planer on pallet wood that I have salvaged for a project and so far so good. I am new to woodworking and have always trusted Craftsman tools in the past and besides the stripped screw issue, I think it will last and preform well for this new weekend wood worker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great I had been in the market for a planer for a long time but finally made the decision to go with this craftman one. One of the main reasons was the price and it seems a lot of other reviews agreed that this was actually a pretty good tool. After trying it a few times I will also have to agree. This thin works. The only thing I'm having an issue with is with planer snipe. One way I found is to use wood a few inches longer than I need to and its good. I tried adjusting both folding tables but I couldn't get it dialed in. Overall it has done what is supposed to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a good job I have run 600 LF already 10ftx10” wide pine. Never got hot, never jammed from shavings, it has a blower to help. The feed rollers work great if your wood is clean, without sap and mold like mine had, but I just pushed it through to help. Tip, during setup I had to level the infeed and outfeed tables since they were not perfectly flat to the planner bed. Knives still sharp as new on first side still.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the hobbyist/unprofessional wood worker easy set up. easy to use. Depth gauge is in 10th which makes no sense. The blades cut good but on had a very minor nick it but the work piece needed to be sanded anyways so i wasnt to concerned. Snipping is an issue even after trying a few diffferent things. But I've always read to plane 1st, cut to size 2nd. I planed over 40' of reclaimed wood right out the box. Worked great. Planed another 40' a few days later. Still working strong but that minor nick in blade was more obvious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoing this addition to the shop I purchased this planer a month ago and have been very happy so far. I did have to adjust both feed tables, but once the were positioned correctly snipe was minimal. People have to remember that this is a small planer and if you’re putting something longer than a foot or so through it you need to support it bith going in and coming out or you’ll get snipe. Between this and the craftsman jointer i can make some pretty nice tabletops.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice for small jobs, snipe is an issue Compact, easy to assemble and to move around. Only downside is I cannot get ride of snipe even with a diy sled. I can minimize it slightly but it’s still obvious. The tables’ hinge is not level with the bed and is not adjustable. There are only two bolts on each table so adjustments are limited. I found having the beds at a slight upward angle helps to minimize the snipe.
