The Delta 22-555 Portable Thickness Planer is great for professional results in the woodworker’s shop. It features two polyurethane feed rollers for a no-slip grip on the work piece; positioned close to the cutter head to improve work piece finish. The machine also has precision machined steel cutter head for endurance and accuracy with a stainless steel bed that reduces friction and improves motor efficiency.
- Powerful 15 Amp motor capable of handling the demands of a small shop
- 4 column designs provides excellent stability for smooth, accurate planning over many years of use
- Quick change knife system with dual edge disposable knives lets you change knives without difficult-to-use alignment jigs
- Adjustable in feed and out feed tables to better support long pieces and reduce snipe
- Reversible dust port allows you to collect chips from the right or left side of the planer
- 2 polyurethane feed rollers for a no-slip grip on the workpiece; positioned close to the cutterhead to improve workpiece finish
- Precision machined steel cutterhead for endurance and accuracy
Worked great on roughsawn black walnut to be used for end tables. Hopefully many more small projects!
No snipe when used properly.
was everything I expected. Great product
Works well. No problem with 1”x12” common boards. Clean wood chips/dust off the drive rollers often to avoid any slipping. Planned down a 2” x 10” x 14” piece of red cedar plank to 1 1/4” thick to make a tray for the wife, no problems. Take your time, I found that a quarter turn works best.
Best value for the price
Super smooth and precise surface planing. Infeed and Outfeed tables did need to be adjusted, but that was to be expected. Great product. Would compare this to some of the higher priced units…Love it!
For my first planer, it more than exceeded my expectations. Great machine.
Easy to use. Does a great job.
Great planer for the price. I haven’t had a good chance to run it through the ringer, but I have 150 +/- bd ft of lumber to run plus more on the way. Yes, there was a little snipe for the first couple boards I ran through, but I have sacrificial wood to take care of that. Small enough to fit in my roll-around table and light enough to lift. Also like the dust port to attach to my shop vac. I look forward to using this more.
Used planer on some 1in by 12in boards worked great
I ordered it and it was at the house in 2 days. Tried it out the first time on soft pine and light cut. Blade chipped on first pass. Snipes bad if fed straight thru but can be lessened by slightly feeding in at angle, over all its a good machine for the price range but next time I would go with a 3 blade machine, make sure you order spare blades
The planer does a great job, but I wish the thickness indicator was on top for a more convenient and accurate view.
Good for the price
Easy to use and great value.
Easy assembly and was up and running in less than fifteen minutes. Delta is one of the better planers.
Working as it should, had to make minor adjustments to reduce snipe.
I purchased this planer originally just for cleaning up rough lumber I get locally for free. However, I love it so much I have incorporated into nearly all of my builds. I never realized what i was missing not having a planer. I used to build everything around the dimensions of the lumber, now I can make the lumber what I want it to be! The size and price were my biggest factors for purchasing the Delta. Minor assembly was really fast and easy, I was using it in no time. I recommend using dust collection as planing creates a lot of mess. I definitely recommend the Delta planer and look forward to trying other tools of the same brand.
Works well but when I opened the box and got the planer out, some of the indication stickers were coming off. The thickness scale sticker and the directional sticker to turn the top leveling knob were almost halfway peeled off. Runs smooth but its showing signs of premature wear on the knives.
It planes as smooth as a $2,000 planer only complaint is it it doesn’t have a dust bag system.
