Electric Hand Planner

Post by joewis » Tue Oct 08, 2013 10:23 am

I also have a question about electric hand planners. Has anyone used them for fairing chines and sheers or are they to agressive?

To get them close, used them, been there, done that. Have at it.

yes I faired chines sheers and stem with a cordless planner. if you are using screws where you can, put them in after fairing like darthplywood said take it steady..
