Turn Planer into a Jointer

Couple handy jigs if you bought a planer before a jointer:


Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something -Plato

I had read of this but the jig is a handy thing to make and worth its weight in gold. I have some boards that will need planing and joining.

A diamond is how coal reacts under pressure.

I made a planer sled "on rails" .....

This sled is more simplified than others using all thread rods to secure the workpiece and small wedges to support it IF needed:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
