Most everyone who knows me, knows that 99% of the wood I use for my projects is reclaimed shipping pallet/crate wood.
It’s all oak and in good shape, but FULL of nails and staples.
I have been working on a pretty big project recently and plucking staples and nails out of my stock like crazy.
I know I’ve missed a few.
If I go to hell when I die, it’s going to be run by my planer and I’m really in for it… :)
And forget a metal detector, I’m too old, blind and deaf for it to do me much good…lol

My next project ought to be a planer blade sharpener.

Have a great day, and stay safe.

My “wizard” detector has a vibrating setting. I cannot hear the tone it makes unless it is very quiet in the shop.

Hi Eric, How about a metal detector kicking a bright warning light so you can’t miss it? :-)

For sure, you are a PATIENT man and you make great stuff!

Do you belt sand your pallet wood to remove grits before heading to the planer?

Best,

Serge

Easiest solution would be just to change your handle to “Planewrecker”. :-)

Even after sharpening the blades and taking the nicks out, it seems like the nicks eventually come back.

An abrasive surface planer may be the answer but they cost more .
Keep on going and make that sharpener but don’t forget to post it after all that happens to us old guys ,I know too well .
