Default Safe T Planer (for us with drill press) needed

I'm trying to find a Wagner Safe-T-Planer (some know it as a drill press or rotary planer). Does anyone have one? Tom

Try finding it on Google, Yahoo or YouTube. Personally, I have no clue what you're referencing. The Wagner stuff I am familiar with has to do with painting - but it is widely available. Honestly, it doesn't even sound right to me. Even sanding with a drill dress is "iffy" as far as accuracy is concerned - however I do it daily - but not for super accuracy. There are some wonderful planes on the market - but they are all deltoid powered!

It seems to me Sears used to sell an attachment like that for use on a radial arm saw. Try what Otis said as well as amazon, ebay, kajiji, and craigslist. I would be more inclined to use it on a RAS than a drill press. The RAS motor has bearings built for that kind of load and the DP doesn't.

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 sold one I picked up at an estate sale on Ebay not too long ago. They are still for sale new on some guitar making websites. I sold mine for about $35, there's a current auction for about $75

I appreciate everyone's responses, thanks. I've found a source in the UK but their price, before S&H is sky high. The maker of the Wagner has gone out of business or something but Woodworkers Supply thought an agreement had been reached between a manufacturer and the license holder of the Wagner but the deal fell through. WS told me there is still hope that an arrangement will be reached but could only guess as to when they may have the product off backorder.
I was interested in the Ebay auction of one that closed today until the bidding got rediculous - it ended up selling for 91.00 plus 8.00 shipping which is way more than I'd ever pay for one. I'll be patient and keep my eyes and ears open.
Thanks again for the help. Tom

I got mine @ woodcraft for about 50.00$ on sale - it works, it's handy and it does not take the place of a dedicated planner

ps - always wear leather gloves when using it - it can grab the wood and pull a very long spinter into you

good luck - r baker

Tom,

You should consider "Router Skis". Do a search on this forum and you will find many posts with information about building and using them. I think they are much better and safer than the so called Safe T Planer. If you already own a router it will be a cheaper way to go as well.
