  • 13" planer

    over the weekend i replaced the feed rollers on my tp1300 and once again i was very impressed with this tool, the first time was with its performance. and now with the way it was built, it took me about an hour to r&r the rollers and change the bldes since they where do. while i was putting the planer back together i had the strangest vision of this same machine 3" wider hhmmm what do you think ridgid could you make a 16" version?
    pipe and wire by day <br />wood and glue by night

    Great idea. But I believe the motor would have be upgraded as well as the frame. When I look at larger than 13" planers, price increase dramatically. For now, I'll plane my edge glues in sections up to 12" or so and then glue those sections together.
