As most of you who follow my blogs know I am in the middle of a big assed build. I am making two workbenches followed by a third bench with the stock that is left and what ever I am forced to buy afterwards to complete the third bench. I normally plop my Dewalt Dw733 onto my Workmate and put the orange block on and force the jaws apart for a friction hold . This has worked very well for many years . However during this build this has fallen short of working as well when the load became too much for the friction grip and the weight of the bench tops made the little planer tip while planing fortunately we saw it move just in time to force it flat with no damage to the top of the bench top. So I have decided it is time to build a better system for the planer to be held in place. I do have a set of casters I purchased for my new clamp rack and I can borrow these for the build . I think the cart will have to be mobile I have not come up with any other Ideas for this cart that I want to build before I plane the next two tops . So time is of the essence. I am currently seeking plans for this little planers cart I would like it to extend the in and out feed tables and would like it to be fairly long like a large planer. I will eventually replace this with a large stationary planer in to 14 to 20 inch range. But for now the ten year old 733 is holding its own it is paid for and still does a nice job I always finish with hand planes so my expectations are a smooth ready to finish product to come off the plane I am sure there are lots of you that have built such an out feed and in feed table system and I am asking for a lot of help in the planning of this table and I need it to come in fairly cheep as money is all tied up in other projects. I have maybe 60 bucks to spend on this and I am robbing Peter to pay Paul for that one to come in under budget .
If you have done this already please post photos and dimensions of your table. If you know of a website that has plans for this project please post the link . If you drew this in sketch up please pm me and Ill give you my email address to send me the file. I need to build this starting in the morning and have zero Ideas on what I want and what I need. I am looking for Inspiration on how to build this project and I need to get this done right away. Thanks for your help and for your guidance on this needed item in my shop. Lance
