Hey guys, how are you doing? A lot of you asked me to make a video about my bench top jointer, so let’s take a tour! I did hours and hours of research, trying to find a way to convert a power planer into a reasonable nice small jointer and, at some point, I found this plans from FreddyS on the Lumberjocks website. After observing the plans along with the pictures in depth, I started working out my version of this whole idea making some necessary changes. It isn’t big but has been working fairly well for small pieces of wood. I have 3 steel brackets holding the fence in place and a zip tie presses the power button. The planer is a hair lifted from the base to reduce vibration and I found that setting the depth of cut to 0 actually removes enough material for me. The safety guard pivots with a bolt that goes into a nut trapped in that little block of wood and I keep it just finger tight. The spring effect is made with a rubber band simply hocked to the bottom left of the machine and it works like this. Recently I added this fine tuning mechanism with a threaded rod and two locked nuts on one end. In the alignment of the fence hole, there is another nut trapped in the base board so I can tune the fence and make it square to the jointer table by threading the rod in and out. The infeed table is movable and has grooves and bolts that allow the table to slide up and down for convenient adjustment. I use a straight edge to level up the extension table with the power planer front plate and the same goes for the outfeed table. to keep the surface slippery so the wood moves smoothly, I apply a homemade bees wax and mineral oil creamy mixture on the table and fence. Now, let’s make a test and see this build in action. You shouldn’t be expecting perfect results with this set up but it can be really useful if you have a power planer that you don’t use that much. It’s really easy to store and doesn’t take much space. I hope you find this informative and if you still have questions leave them on the comments section and thanks so much for watching. I’ll catch you later! Well, I have a question for you. Sometimes I get this big scallop at the end of a jointed surface. Why does this happen? What am I doing wrong?
