A planer is one of those tools that anyone working with wood would have in their tool bag as a standard item. Whether its windows, doors, frames, kitchen counters, tables, chairs, or cabinets, a planer is the MUST have tool for wood work.

Simply put, they’re used to flatten or smooth a wood surface by skimming thin layers of material until the required thickness has been met. The result of this means that materials will fit correctly and not be out of shape or size.

At ITS, we have an extensive range of corded and cordless planers to suit your needs and your budget.

With options of a planing width up to 82mm, your choice of 12V or 18V cordless planers, or 110V / 240V corded planers, our expertly and carefully selected range includes trusted industry brands such as Bosch, Einhell, Makita, Hikoki, Milwaukee, Dewalt, Festool and Metabo.

Many of the planers will have a dedicated debris/dust collection bag as well as the capability of being connected directly to an external dust collector.

Amongst the selection of planers from ITS, is a thicknesser. This is a unique, time saving machine that ‘planes’ both sides of board to a consistent thickness throughout the length and is perfectly flat on both sides.

It is different from a planer, where the cutter head is set into the bed surface. A surface planer has slight advantages for producing the first flat surface and may be able to do so in a single pass. However, the thicknesser has more important advantages in that it can produce a board with a consistent thickness, avoids producing a tapered board, and by making passes on each side and turning the board, may also be used for the initial preparation of an unplaned board.
