I'm with you on this one. Taking the hand tool approach on this one. If it becomes a bigger thing, I'll probably just take a lathe class at a local shop, and do this the 'right' way.
Don - 4 1/2 years old. Currently obsessed with all things flying and space related. Zeppelins/blimps, aircraft of all types, the Apollo missions, the Shuttle, Space X, Mars Rovers... he's going to be a giant dork, and I couldn't be happier.
Well Mike...There may be the reason some of my things dont sell .I do good work but some things Im lucky to cover my cost because I half to drop the price to get them to sell ...I think this has been the problem for me...New ideas and the market value in mind may be the ticket for me..Thanks
Do dust collectors adapt to planers fairly well or are there various attachments I need to find?
Yea, I've got to take it apart again anyways. Even though the blades have self-aligning guide holes that fit them into place, for some reason the planer isn't planing the same thickness evenly across the board width now.
The boards are already to the thickness I need, so I can't plane any further, so I'll surely give the damp cloth and clothes iron a try. Thanks
