Making your own planer boards

6 posts in this topic

Anyone got plans? Thought they shouldn't be too hard to make but was hoping someone has done it already and had plans.

A few years back we had a work shop and Surface Tension and others brought theirs in for us to check out and measure. I did a quick search to see if anything was posted on here, I saw a little bit. I'll see if I can dig up my notes.

Use cedar or clear pine, you need 2-1"x8"x6'

Board width is 16", height is 6 1/2", length is 34"

I couldn't find the measurements for the locations of the threaded rods or the eyelet. I'll measure mine out and post them tonight. For the angled edge cuts use a block on the circle saw to get more than a 45 degree cut.

For more reading on this forum do a search.

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.
