The Triton 12-1/2'' Planer is just big enough to handle most common planks or dimensional lumber, yet just small enough that it's not a hassle to store or move around your shop. Setting the depth of cut is easy and accurate with the top-mounted crank handle—simply turn it one revolution to raise the cutters 1/16'', half a turn for 1/32'' and so on. The cutter head moves along fourseparate columns for smoothness and rigidity, and theheight is adjustable from 1/8'' to 6''. Large infeed and outfeed tables provide added material support. The included dust chute is reversible for chip ejection to either the left or right.


Features:

  • Easy, accurate setting of depth of cut—one turn equals 1/16"
  • Cutter height is adjustable from 1/8" to 6" to accept a large range of stock widths/thicknesses
  • 4-post column design for rigidity and smooth vertical adjustments
  • Infeed and outfeed tables provides support for longer workpieces, and fold in when not in use
  • Circuit breaker helps prevent motor overload
  • Dust extraction chute directs waste to the left or right for a cleaner working environment
  • Mounting holes allow secure bench or stand mounting
  • Scale reads in both metric and imperial graduations
  • Easy access for changing out worn brushes

Whole new world
I love this thing. May be my favorite tool in my shop as it allows me to do so much more with wood I would have never considered. Recently bought a 5' piece of Live Edge Spalted Maple from a local re-use store. Planed down to a beautiful surface and made 4 really nice cheese boards. For a beginner like me and the projects I will do I think this is easily worth the $$ spent.

It came out of the box needing almost zero adjustment/set up. I was planning within 30 minutes and making a huge mess in the shop. Parts seem readily available and it seems easily serviceable.

Don't pass this up!
Fantastic machine, for half the cost of the dewalt. I was considering but I'm glad I made the choice I did. Highly recommend! Cuts nice and clean and haven't needed to sand much after. The only thing I would change is having a 4" dust port over the 2.5" I believe it is.
Just a few passes.

I bought this due to price and it has a vacuum system. Sold my other planer, due to no vacuum system. The Triton works great with vacuum, Alot less mess than my other planner. I bought it January 12th 2019 at Rockler in Buffalo. I do small projects. The biggest is ADK Chairs. It works great easy to set up. After about a month of using every weekend, it started to have a grinding noise. Thinking something was going wrong, I called Rockler and because I didn't buy extended warranty and it was after 30 days I had to call manufacturer. My fault not Rocklers. I couldn't get ahold of manufacturer. So I started checking out why this noise was there. I read the reviews and checked into it further. I found that the gear box behind the chain drive was very low on grease. So I disassembled the chains and gear box and added a little more grease. Reassemble and tested. Noise gone. Found no other issues while checking into issue. Then after fixing issue, manufacturer called me back. I explained what I did. They said we should check and clean it every once in a while. Due to rpms it runs and depending on how much you use it. Heat wears out grease. Other than that it works perfectly. Had to turn blades after a month of use. For the cost works great. I use it all the time.

My days of using a belt sander to clean up rough lumber is over. The triton planer is superb. The planer gives the lumber a smooth finish. Definately recommend it. Is easy to use and is very dependable.

Thickness planer
Working good. Made adjustments to the infeed table to reduce "snipe", still have to check out feed table. Quality of the cut surface is very good. I would recommend this product.

I have purchased other Triton Products in the past and have been pleased with their performances.
Richard W on Feb 2, 2020
I have needed one for years. I have been using a friend's planer and it has become very inconvenient. (Trade out, He uses my band saw) The price and Triton tool reputation was a consideration. I use a lot of reclaimed and repurposed lumber and a planer is a must.

Price was one reason, and reading the reviews tipped the scale.
Stephen S on Mar 6, 2019
Good price on a planer from a good brand; seems to be a planer that will be good for a beginner woodworker but will also allow the woodworker to use it as those skills advance.

Are replacement blades readily available ? Easy to change?
David H on Aug 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Rockler apparently carries them - if you scroll down on the page for this planer on their site you can see them. (about $35)
Hello, I have read in the technical downloads that the planer is 220v. Is this correct? Many thanks.
Javier R on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The one I bought from Rockler is 110V and works fine for me on a standard US power supply.

I believe there are 240V ones for the UK market if you were to buy from a UK seller.
It is 220/240 but which outlet type does this use there are several it could be. Thanks ???????
Webb W W on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It comes prewired for 110v. If you rewire it for 220, it's whatever plug you want to use.
does it have metal gears?
Joel K on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the lead screw that moves the heads up and down are metal.
