A benchtop planer is ideal for professional or hobbyist woodworkers with limited shop space, or who don’t mill large quantities of lumber, and for contractors who want to be able to dimension stock on a job site. While they aren’t designed for heavy duty continuous use, they excel at producing precisely milled, smoothly finished stock very quickly.
When accuracy in hole size and depth is crucial, for example, when making furniture or installing delicate trimwork, reach for a drill/driver. The control offered by a drill/driver's clutch can be somewhat more important than the need for extreme levels of torque.
For the longest time miter saws were considered to be carpenters tools. The earliest versions of these saws were primarily used for making crosscuts and simple miter cuts on dimensional lumber, usually on a job site.
Oscillating (or multi) tools are becoming increasingly popular, in large part because there are many more brands to choose from.
