Thumbs up Thanks

I joined to look at some photos of a jointer made from a powered hand plane. I have already started on a project to turn my hand saw and router into bench models and wondered if it was possible to mount the plane.

From the photos in the post it does seem possible although it looks as if I may need to secure the planer more firmly than I had intended.

Welcome Trevor. It's not impossible but it could be difficult. The depth adjustment is achieved by raising and lowering the front shoe. If you check the 2nd picture from the left on the top row of this link you'll see the front shoe raised for a cut. https://www.google.ca/search?q=makit...w=1280&bih=861 The rear shoe, or platen, has to be level with the blade. This means in order for you to mount it you would have to have the rear shoe fixed at one height and the front shoe and any infeed to it would have to raise and lower in unison. It would be almost impossible to use without an infeed table. That would be the tricky part, i.e. matching the infeed and the front shoe to the same height, or, dropping the front shoe as far as it will go and adjusting height with the infeed table which has to raise and lower parallel with the rear shoe which could also be tricky. Finding a used jointer on Craigslist, Kijiji, or ebay might be a better choice.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I don't have what you mentioned, however, for small pieces I think this guy has a good idea using your table saw setup.

Welcome Trevor - you might get some ideas by looking at the planer attachment for the Triton saw - the important feature is that the system does not depend on the planer sole plates, which are too short to be effective, but uses pressure fingers to keep the workpiece pressed against the saw fence, away from the planer, so only the blade itself makes contact with the wood.
To achieve this the planer is mounted at a slight angle, so that the rear sole plate only contacts the workpiece immediately behind the blade.
You could use this in conjunction with the the type of jig which John referred to.
Here is a link to a demo on the Triton system (which I have been using to great effect for many years.) Rob

Has anyone else used the Triton attachment?

Default Triton Planer Attachment

Steve, I doubt if this attachment can be easily modified for a different table, but it might give some ideas. On the Triton it works extremely well, and easily swings out of the way.
