Accessibility Statement


Using an electric planer right up to the edge or on rabbets can leave a lip that has to be removed by hand. The HL 850 lets you cut flush to an adjacent surface because it can plane across the entire width of the rabbet. Because the planer head is mounted to one side, it sits flush with the opposite side of the planer housing. The retractable side guard makes planing safer, and it swings up and to the side as the rabbet depth increases.
