I have used other planners. but i have found the bosch to the best one to me. we do a lot of trim work where hand planning is needed. it is light and balanced. makes edge planing 3/4, on site, easy. powerful little motor is a plus. would definitely recommend.

When my 3258 planner died after 13 years of perfect performance I was sad that it's design had been changed. I replaced it with a 1594K and I have to say the new design is quite poor and unworthy of Bosch. Since the 1594's purchase I have nicked or damaged several finished surfaces due to it's weak park rest spring. The 3258 model was perfect and should have left it alone, or at the very least made the 1594 with a electric brake. I will continue to be a diehard Bosch fan, minus the new planner.

Comments about Bosch Tools 3.25" Planer with Carrying Case:
I bought this tool a few days aftet buying my old fixer upper, I had a honey do list 3 pages long. First project was building a custom frame and front door. This planer is easy to use and had great depth adjustments. I really like to automatic kick stand in the back. The wood chip bag fills quickly but if you have a shop vac then you can just hook up to that. I also enjoy the fact that the tool allows the wood chip bag/shop vac hose to be on either side of the tool. Blade change was super easy and blades are cheap. The overall feel of the tool in your hands while working is just wonderful. Now to the case, it's solid, looks cool and has extra space for blades. All in all, this thing does is job great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love it, had this planer for 7 years
from Richmond, VA, United States
Works well, ejects sawdust from rather side. The fence attachment makes it ideal for trimming doors with a 3 deg angle.
easy to use, dust port can be used for either sid
from Sacramento, California
I did a lot of research and for that the 159K was the best buy for the price, handling, well built
Built to work!
from Puerto Rico
Bought this product two years ago. Just replaced blades a few times because of hidden nails on the wood. Light, precise with lots of Power. Would like to review more products as hammers and saws but they are discontinued. This tools keeps going and going...
WHILE I LIKE THIS PLANER, I LIKED THE PREVIOUS VERSION I REPLACED IT WITH MORE - IT HAD SOME BETTER FEATURES & WAS BETTER QUALITY.
Could be better
from Duluth, MN, United States
This product is great as it allows you to throw dust in either direction and not in your face. I wanted this planer to assist with cabinet installations. It is a vital tool for making prefect scribes. However the Bosch planer lacks a continuous switch function. For me that is a deal breaker. I like the planer be able to run and not have to hold the switch at the same time. It allows me to grip the tool in a more comfortable manner. In turn that allows me to make better scribes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
First power hand planer ...
from south central nebraska
First power hand planer for me, light and easy to use, sufficient power. Really like the either-side dust collector, I attached a hose to a shop vac and had virtually no escaped chips or dust. I used it to plane down floor joists to level a floor, worked great.
from Franklin, TN
This tool gets the job done. I am so glad I bought the 2 blade system. I have had to plane a lot of doors recently, and this tool has made it a breeze to do the job.
powerful and sharp
from Upstate N
I used this to plane down some areas in a old house to match a new floor I was putting in. The tool effortlessly removed the excess and in no time, the area was down to where it matched the new floor. The rotating discharge allowed me to aim the waste to whichever side I needed it to go. I did hit a old nail that I didn't see but it was very easy to replace the blades and took very little time. I have seven Bosch power tools and have never been dissapointed in any of them. Another great tool
Worth the money
from Oak Creek, WI
There are a lot of planers around that are cheaper but I wanted the bevel guide and I'm glad I spent the extra money. I used it on three slab doors I installed with five more to go and it worked fine. I'm the kind of guy that needs all the accessories but I could't find them all at one site. I had to shop around. The owners manual talked about a washer that is included for the guide but none was included.
