Planer bed/sled

I think we have all had issues with snipe on the planer. I know that I have also had some issues with twisted or otherwise uneven pieces that are too wide for the jointer. I had read an article from fine woodworking about auxiliary planer beds and how this simple addition could help. We have one now. It may require some adjustment to the feet but I didn’t have enough time to fine tune it.


In addition there is now a planer sled.

Thanks for the upgrades to the shop!

I look forward to checking out the planer sled and bed. Maybe tonight at Open Shop!

I got a chance to use the new bed and sled this weekend. And those new cutter blades!! Super quiet.

It makes me excited about chewing up wood through the planer again.

Thanks for the upgrades
