It was a pretty cheap solution, too. Built entirely from 2×4s!

I really don’t know why I haven’t seen anyone else do this before. Besides being a big space saver, the infeed/outfeed beds from one machine act as great staging spots for running stock through the other machine. Plus, grain orientation for stock coming off the jointer is exactly what you want for feeding through the planer. Just lift it up, no thought required.

Someday I’ll need to upgrade to a 20” planer and have to ditch this setup. I’ll miss it.

They are on separate 4” blast gates wye’d off a 6” drop. If were to change anything, I’d just use a single gate before the wye. My cyclone (a CVMAX) is way oversized for a single 4” gate to be open.
