Planer (metalworking)

A planer is a type of metalworking machine tool that uses linear relative motion between the workpiece and a single-point cutting tool to cut the work piece.[1] A planer is similar to a shaper, but larger, and with workpiece moving, whereas in a shaper the cutting tool moves.
