  • A Planing Lightweight

    Jul 19, 2000 by GuisBuild is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, Lightweight---very portable
    Cons: Loud, Depth of cut gauge, short cord, lots of plastic

    Summary: I purchased the Delta 12 1/2" Portable Planer first for its value and secondly because of its light weight. However, in addition to the big plus of price and weight, the snipe control and mobility won out over the competition. I have been ... read more

  • Holds it's own

    Pros: excellent performance, great price, easy blade changes, 2 yr warranty, cutter head lock
    Cons: no depth gauge, flat top would be nice to hold lumber between passes

    Summary: This was my first planer purchase and was compared to others under $400 by Jet, DeWalt, Ridgid, Craftsmen, Grizzly and the older Delta 22-540. I had read some user concerns about an internal problem in the early versions of this model, but follow-up ... read more

  • Nice little planer

    Pros: Price, Not much snipe, lightweight
    Cons: Hard to clean

    Summary: I need to a planer to do mill some trim for a project I was doing. This machine turned out to be a pretty good investment. Kinda cheasy that they don't include the dust collection chute. I had some initial problems with the cutterhead lock, but it ... read more

  • Better than any I've used

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent quality, very good performance
    Cons: No dust collector

    Summary: My old 12" planer finally wore out and I needed a new one. I've had very good luck with other Delta products and tried out a friends before buying. Like all small planers it does chatter some but not too badly. It's easy to adjust, but don't ... read more

  • Lightweight, but great results

    Sep 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, good snipe control, cheap to operate, good dust control
    Cons: In this class of machine - NONE

    Summary: I bought the Delta 22-560 bench model planer to replace my Ryobi AP-10, which wasn't quite wide enough to handle some of the rough lumber I work. I considered the DeWalt and Ridgid planers, but couldn't justify the extra $$$, size and weight. Reviews ... read more

  • Never knew how much I needed this

    Jun 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful, smooth cuts, minimal snipe
    Cons: Noisy, infeed and outfeed tables could be longer

    Summary: With a little extra cash in hand, I finally took the plunge and bought myself a Delta 22/560 portable planer. Admittedly, I wasn't sure I'd really have much use for one. But after a few uses, what a great tool it's turned out to be. Glass-smooth ... read more

  • Improved, but not PERFECTt

    Jan 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent snipe control, stable cutting head
    Cons: Poor chip control

    Summary: For the past 12 years I have been a strong proponent of the portable planers for hobby and shop projects. Recently, my old reliable Delta 12 planer (model #22-540) finally gave out after 12 years of service; surfacing ~8,000 board feet of Oak lumber ... read more

  • Love It!

    Pros: Quality, reasonable price
    Cons: None

    Summary: I recently purchased this unit for my shop and on the job usage. I can't tell you what a wonderful tool this is. I have been extremely happy with this planner. It has done everything I've needed and has saved me time and money on jobs. I shopped around ... read more
