    So I picked up a DeWalt portable planer and a Delta dust/debris collector today for planing down strips of wood for laminate necks. If anyone is interested, I'll post on how well it does. It'll be used on mainly hardwoods (bubinga, wenge, and hard maple for now).

    I still consider myself a novice, and for me any of the posts on tools, theirs uses, and opinions on specific models have been quite helpful in my projects.

    BTW: I finally found a local place that carries the good router bits...Amana, Freud, and CMT, and wide varieties. It's about time!

    I'd like to hear how the DeWalt works out for you.
    I'm starting to shop for a planer also, and will be working on the same types of woods.
