« Part 2: working on wing and added wheels Part 3 of Jointer and Planer Fliptop series Part 4: planer and 2nd wing attached »


Tonight, I cut the dust collection hole thru the fliptop platform for the jointer. Where as on the planer side, there will be a dust collection cavity hooked upto dust collection hose later on, as I have to raise the planer 2 3/8” to make even with the jointer 5” bed height.
I bolted down the jointer with all thread and 3/8” nuts. Same for the motor. I’ll have to re-wire it to go CCW instead of CW for obvious reasons and possibly build something of a belt guard.
Next time around will be final height, dust collection cavity / planer stand, and bolting it together.
