When a project requires thin stock, our portable planer saves us the time and trouble of having to special-order material. But, having to lift it onto my workbench every time we need it can be a backbreaker.
To solve this problem, we designed the thicknessing center shown here. For continuous support when planing long boards. We included infeed and outfeed tables that adjust up or down. To maximize our shop storage space, the tables fold down when not in use. Finally, we designed the planer platform so it raises or lowers to suit most 12" portable planers. Aligning the tables with the planer guarantees a smooth, even flow of stock through the machining process.As a bonus, we've included plans
for the Easy-Does-It Tool Mover!
