Planer Blade Sharpening / Little advice
May 16, 2018, 05:38:15 PM

I'm looking at buying a thickness planer, and there are these two relatively new ones around the same price range and features. Has anyone had any first hand experience with either of them?

I'm leaning towards the King because I already have the King benchtop jointer and so they would share the same helical blades. But then the Mangum comes with Carbide blades, and the King only unofficially supports carbide blades. Both are helical.

I don't know much about Magnum. I think I've read they are a rebrand of General?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thank u!
