The planer means "removing irregularities" and that is exactly what the planer has been used since the first edition of the tool came to. The ancient Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans lived with planes and here in the north there was probably some stone age man who made the first shine of flint.
The appearance has not changed so much over the centuries, yet it has developed into a special tool for many different purposes. In an old list of a carpenter's tool a wide variety of planes are included, including the following: "rud and fogbank, double, rough, sims, scrub, fresh, not, rod, carnivorous, flat-tooth, tooth, and carriage". > The list does not include ox and chipboard, probably because the tools were counted on the timber equipment. The carpets were thus considered to be superior to carpenters, which is also emphasized in the Finnish-Swedish mill to call them "wooden carriers." However, in the old list, it is clearly distinguished between caravans and profile hoists, much the same as those used to speak of ordinary benches and special boots . One might think that the number of planes has been reduced over the years and with technical developments. But if this has happened, it is highly insignificant. Rather, we have got more planes to keep in mind, because a lot of types today exist as both wood and metal planks.
No bad talk about the traditional wood models, but the metal hubs are undoubtedly faster to adjust and adjust and cut chips to a controlled, precise depth. New tools are constantly being constructed, but it is difficult to imagine much better planes than those today. Even if they remind a lot about those used for example about 500 years ago, it is light years difference in the function. At that time, the shelf was called "skavi", that is, scarlet iron.
That's the point of thinking about the planks, which is very important. The tool can be any perfect in the design. Folding the setting will be the result yet not what you expect and what the plane can perform. A prerequisite is also a good flatbed. The platform is undoubtedly an advanced tool for carpentry enthusiasts, who already find out the need for different special-purpose engines, even for machine-tools. The ordinarily small house owner generally manages a single planer shelf with eccentric locking.
Important Settings on a Shelf
As you can see on the pictures, the metal shifter has almost twice as many details as the traditional wood shelf. This more advanced design allows the tool to be set with very high accuracy. A very important detail is the flap flap. It prevents the wood from tearing up when the planetary wire breaks the chip.
