Planer Stand

Found the plans for this mobile planer stand in ShopNotes. The only modification I made was to make the extension arms have actual rollers. The rollers are PVC with a large wooden dowel holding it in place. The arms drop down to perfect level with the outfeed. I’m getting a whole lot more enjoyment out of using my planer with it on this cart.

I like the out feed roller system. How far out do they extend?

The middle roller is adjustable front to back. The outer one is fixed in place. I’m not at home to measure, but I think it’s about 36-40”

Good job. I think at least 5 LJ’s have made this stand.
Shows how good it is.


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

I get about 3” snipe front and back with this planer (even after a good setup). Have you noticed any improvement to that?

Thanks for all the compliments. I appreciate it.

Turtle, still has some snipe. It’s manageable, but I need to stop and do some fine tuning to the planer itself. Came across an article on this the other day. Just need to try and find it again.

Cool, it doesn’t get much better than that. What issue of Shop Notes is that from? Thanks.
