    Planer tables

    I am about done with building a cabinet for my router table. Now I want to turn my lunchbox planer into a stationary tool. I think a saw somewhere a cabinet with infeed and outfeed tables that were adjustable but I can't locate it. I have used search for planer tables and looked thru so for the threads in jigs and fixtures but didn't find.

    Hi Rex,

    I built one that was in WOOD magazine several years ago. It works pretty well and is mobile. The tables don't adjust but the surface the planer sits on does. If you go their website you can probably pull it up. I'll try later to post a couple pics of mine.

    I did finally get the table level. I also found that the insert is warpped in the center also probably arounnd .010. I have a peice of marble that I am gluing 2 sheets of fine sand paper to and then can flatten the insert. I do have adjusters in the table to level the insert to the table.
