  • Now You See It - Now You Don't !

    This has been a really big Hassle for me.
    ever since I purchased my Planer Ive had to continually move it from a bench to where ever I could find to store it.
    I had it on a floor creeper for awhile (made it easy to slide under a bench but then I had to stoop over to use it)
    so for the last few months Ive been coming up with a plan !

    I had several requirements.
    1 - it had to fit under the right wing of my table saw.
    2 - it had to be easy to use.
    3 - this thing weighs what, 75lbs ?. (I was getting tired of lifting it off the floor.)

    putting it on a bench is fine, till I need the bench for something else.
    so I would put it away only to find I really needed it for just one more operation.
    "but now Ive got stuf in the way"

    so I put my "Plan" into action!

    Heres the planer ready for use.
    notice the dust chute tucked inside the planer,great place to store it.



    notice the area in front of the hand crank it makes a nice small table-its part of the lid.
    I "borrowed" the Idea from a sewing machine stand.
    and here it is Folded down inside.

    here we are looking down into the cabinet.
    notice the castor wheel - and the concrete floor.
    why give the sawdust a place to accumulate !

    And Ive reached my main Goal.
    It rolls under the right wing of my Table saw with a 1/4 inch to spare!

    Now you see it - Now you dont !
    cheers

        Good idea.

        And, you can roll it out and use it as a small assembly/finishing table.

          Reminds me of the old sewing machine tables.

            Looks like a great way to store you're Planer out of the way.

              Great idea! They certainly are a bear to move around.
