Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool - very powerful and has been a lifesaver... Great tool - very powerful and has been a lifesaver as I restore some old pilings that will be refinished. Also very handy for ensuring walls are even when hanging backerboard for a tile job. Very easy to use and control depth - would recommend for anyone that is moving beyond the endless palm sanding to get things smooth.

To cut a rabbet, is it easy to setup and use? What is the maximum width of the rabbet?

To cut a rabbet, is it easy to setup and use? What is the maximum width of the rabbet?
Asked by: WileyECoyote
Hi, WileyECoyote. Thank you for your interest in the RIDGID 18-Volt OCTANE Cordless Brushless 3-1/4 in. Hand Planer. It is fairly easy to set up the product in order to do rabbet cuts. You will just need to follow the instructions in the manual. If you do not have the manual it is linked on Home Depot's website. The maximum depth of the rabbet cut is 1/2 in. and has to be cut in 5/64 in. passes or less to reach the desired depth. The width of the rabbet cut is adjustable by moving the edge guide. there is not a maximum width recorded in the specifications. Thank you for asking, if you have further questions and would like to speak with a RIDGID Customer Experience Professional, all contact services are available Monday- Friday from 9am to 6pm (est) to contact us toll free please call 866.539.1710.
