Increase The Accuracy of Your Thickness Planer


821 views | 10 days ago |

Most folks own a stationary planer that is wider than their jointer. Unless you know how to flatten one side of the board with hand tools, the extra capacity isn't useful.  
 Planers only make faces parallel, if you send a twisted or cupped board through the planer you will get a twisted or cupped board out the other end, just thinner.  A bit of know-how and some elbow grease will allow you to use the full width of your planer, accurately! We filmed the entire process so you will get an idea of what it takes.
