My favorite jointer / planer push tool
thought it was about time to share…
Made this push tool for my planer and table saw about four yeas back, just found the old pictures and thought it was about time to share…
Made from some cheap scrap plywood and took app half a hour to make, so really; there are no reason not to.
The Stanley type handle makes it really comfortable to use and allows for a firm grip and fair down force.
I can’t remember why I choose the shape and the front push version, but I can tell I like using it.
Most of all it keeps me safe and makes me work in calmness when using the planer.
1. In action by the table saw.
2. Drawing the shape on a piece of scrap plywood.
3. Gluing two layers to get the thickness I want.
4. Cut to shape.
5. Shaping on a drum sander.
6. Perhaps not beautiful but sure is functional.
Hope it can be to some inspiration for shop safety.
