Matt Long gets into the groove with the GMC Carbon Fibre Unlimited Rebate Planer
GMC's return to the market has seen them put out this unlimited rebate planer in their carbon fibre series.
First impressionsStraight out of the box, GMC's idiosyncratic design features in this series of tools are noticeable. And no bad thing, as we found out with their random orbital sander last issue.
The front and rear handles are nicely positioned, giving you a feeling of control. The extendable front shoe also adds to this feeling.
There is a lever under the front handle for lifting the planer side guard for the unlimited depth cut.
The clickable depth dial feels sturdy and easy to use, and goes in 0.2mm steps. The trigger has a lock-on switch easily accessible by the thumb, which makes for ease of use.
