Rated 1 out of 5 by Wood star Bought this planer wood star very disappointed not as good as the Titan planer shame 26 Sep 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by worst tool I've ever bought. First time I used it, good job done. Next week chain tension slackened allowing thicknesser to drop so nothing getting planed. Had to phone hotline number for instructions to retension it. Thicknesser adjuster handle still kept turning causing it to drop so no planing of wood. Then a spot welded part fell of it. Not at all impressed with it. 25 Sep 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by budget workshop putting together a budget workshop- as much as I would like to spend £1000s I'm still a self builder so can't warrant the expense. as thicknesses go this is a good tool- it doesn't allow me to do part planing- to make stepped profiles for window frames but I can make an extended work bench for it to fit in to do more craftier stuff. otherwise good tool for the money- coped well with very hard oak. comes with spare drive belts that can break if they over heat or just wear out- haven't used it enough to give an idea on reliability. One irritation is the safety/dust collector- the tool won't work unless the catch is inserted- held in place with a small phillips scew. 16 Dec 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by useful piece of kit for a diy piece of kit this is quite good but the extractor chute is a nuisance and you need to have it attached probably works well with an extraction vacuum fitted 27 Apr 2012

Just purchased the Woodstar PT85 planer when using the thicknesser the first 1.5" and last 1.5" planes thinner by 0.010" than rest of the timber. Have you any comments to cure this problem.

HI The problem you refer to is called snipe , this is evident on all automatically fed planer thicknessers , even industrial machines , its when the timber hits the first feed roller and then hits the second feed roller , there is a slight difference in the down ward pressure from one feed roller to the 2nd feed roller , then when the timber leaves the first feed roller having been under the pressure of 2 feed rollers is now only under the pressure of one feed roller and what you see as snipe is the difference in pressure from the feed rollers, hope this makes sense .
Please check your knife setting , feed the timber at a slight angle , and leave enough waste on the length of the timer so that the snipe can be cut off when cutting to length . 0.010th tolerance is ok as I have seen much worse snipe as much as 1mm / 2mm .
