New toy in the woodlot

Post by Harry »

Got this put together today. Its just a 13". Eventually I would like to get a much larger but this is going to step up quality and speed on the things I am making now.

In the background is the profile of a leg for a lounge I am working on.

Also got a 3 1/2" battery handheld planer.

Next big tool on the wish list is a large bandsaw for cutting those profiles for benches and lounges. The way I am doing it now just takes so long so I keep investing in upping the quality and increasing the output.

There is a 3rd party that makes a replacement drum for these surface planers that use 60 indexable cutters mounted in a helical pattern. They are about $400 but there is a lot of upsides like carbide inserts, 4 cutting sides, less contact on the surface at any given instant and if you get a chip in a blade its just in the line of that one spot so no need to replace the entire 13" long blades.
