WEN is one of the brands that people tend to shy away from because they have products that are very affordable. Little did they know, their products are actually solid choices. Let’s use this planner as an example, this one costs only a fraction of what the other brands offer but it has all the power you need. It even has rubber grips on the adjustment knobs which would definitely ensure your safety. This knob is very easy to access and easy t twist until you get the desired measurements. With the adjustable design this tool can work with the thicker and wider boards. When we compare this to planners in its price range, those could only work with certain sizes of boards while this WEN 6550 can work with boards upto 6 inches thick. This one has a feed rate of 26 ft per minute so it could make 18 thousand cuts per second too. This is also easy to transport because it only weighs 79 LBS. This is definitely a very good choice if you’re on a budget but you want something above the average and powerful.
