Hi all, here I am again, it’s a while I don’t post anything.

My idea is very simple (I guess somebody else has already done something similar).
Basically I have built a square fence and a “presser” out of wood, both fastened to the thickness planer by means of some clamps. The board to be planed stays perfectly upright while planing.

Great solution to edge planing. Nice design on this jig.

Hello Antonio! It’s great to see you posting again. I like your idea of the wooden spring. Until now I have only seen this idea used for bench dogs. You have taken the concept to a new level. I’m sure a lot of folks will want to make one of these.

Simple is always best Antonio and this one is elegant.
Anybody can make complicated. Simple takes clear thinking.
As Mike said, it’s good to see your name come up again.

That’s a really great jig idea and build to boot. It’s certainly a jig that’s looks to get a lot of use. Cheers.

Now this is a nice idea, I think something similar would also be good for resawing on a bandsaw.

wont this tear up the feed rollers? seems the stationary pieces with the rollers constantly trying to pull them through would eat the rollers, unless the piece being fed is taller than the ‘fences’.
