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 was never able to adjust the planer depth to less than 1mm. Also, it is lopsided, with one side cutting at nearly 2mm.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Solid and Durable Product
from Paso Robles, CA, United States
I purchased this planer over a year ago and am extremely happy with it. There are a number of outstanding things with this tool. First - the dual port for the shop vacuum connections is great. You can connect the vacuum for either side of the planer. This lets you get into any area that you need, and results in a dust free work area. Second - the Depth Adjustment knob is right in front and easy to read and set. Third - the Park Rest keeps you from accidentally damaging the blade. The unit is well balanced and a joy to use. Oh, did I mention blade changes are easy to do.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have own this planer for 7 years and it is the best portable planer I have ever used, it is well balanced and has plenty of power. The fence is very accurate and easy to set up.

Wonderful tool. Purchased one month into a custom basement renovation and wow. I should have added this tool to the collection years ago. Thank you Bosch.

The Best !

from North Carolina, United States
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.
Love it, had this planer for 7 years

Works well, ejects sawdust from rather side. The fence attachment makes it ideal for trimming doors with a 3 deg angle.
