In our February 2005 issue we tested 15″ planers and, honestly, we missed one. The Shop Fox W1724 should have been in the test.

The W1724 stands out as one of the new spiral cutterhead models. This planer uses three disposable, high-speed steel knives mounted in a spiral pattern. Of the spiral head variations available, this design provides a quality cut, is quiet, less expensive and it’s easy to change and set the knives.
