I have a Craftsman Contractor series planer molder. It has the fixed cutterhead with the metal table that adjusts up and down. When I bought this thing, it didn’t even cross my mind that I would have so much trouble with the infeed/ outfeed support.
I would like to build a support table before and after the cutterhead for the material to ride on. With the adjustable metal table on the planer, I don’t know how to accomplish this. If the metal table was fixed, it would be simple because the infeed/outfeed support would be fixed. But, since mine goes up and down, the infeed/outfeed also must go up and down, level with the metal planer table.
My question is, how do you all solve this problem? I’ve bought some of those rollers on stands, but if I adjust the table, they also have to be adjusted every time to avoid snipe. Is this a losing battle?
Thanks in advance…
