Planers are designed for use only with wood. They come in a number of sizes. The larger, heavy-duty types are best suited to professional use, but smaller models are fine for DIY. Make sure the machine has stopped moving before putting it down after use to avoid accidental damage to surfaces. Unplug the machine before adjusting or changing the blades on a planer.
