Cheers

Hey TV! I thought Safe-T-Planer hate speak was my speciality!!😂😂

It's a handy gadget - I object more to the name which implies it's something that it really isn't.

If it were called danger-planer, I'd be more accepting of it.  I bought one years ago, but have barely used it since considering the risk/benefit aspects!

I’ve got a Titan TTB579PLN planer/thicknesser - £160 - it works really well - first one didn’t - it was DOA - took a little while to get it working well but I can take rough timber and get it smooth and square.  It is a pain to switch modes so you have to plan to do jobs in batches.

I have two shop vacs (more Titan crap!) one of which connects to the bandsaw, the planer/thicknesser and by sander/thicknesser and things stay reasonably dust free - the planer/thicknesser does chuck shavings a bit.  

No idea how long a cheap tool like this will last but it doesn’t get used a lot....

Measure once........
Measure again.........
Sod it - make tea!
