I've bought this thickness planar new and had it for a few months now. I like to keep my equipment and work area clean since I work in a garage connected to the house. But one thing I can't keep clean is the cracks and holes inside the machine since it's either hard to reach or inaccessible. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up my planar to clear some chips that was stuck in the exhaust fan.

|The planar blade exposed, really not much dust.|
