    A real transition...........

    Man, I'm ready to pull out all of my hair!

    My planer had a shroud or a transition I just slapped together when I got it, it was poorly built and was just supposed to be a stop gap, well that was some time ago

    I went to use the planer to dimension the walnut for the display humidor, and the shroud thing just simply collapsed........

    OK, time to get out the paper, and the compass and make a much better transition, or shroud.

    I found this page TRANSITON and followed along and the results are not bad............ the second time

    .........I'll make it one solid piece, so I can easily lift the lid to change knives.........

    Oh well, I'll get it done, but man, I'd rather be making chips and working on the darn display case.........

    Cheers!

    Oops!!!

    I did that once with my molder.
    I sat back and was slapping my back some. Finally got the chips under control on this beast.
    Next day or so, I changed the knife profile, stuck some wood in it, and--
    Wood was stuck on the shroud end.

    I retained the ability to open the top with just removing one screw.

    Some Akagashi that I planed, some "Junk" pieces......Looks fairly good eh?

    Attachment 3134
    This is the walnut, I think it should be fairly nice.............no?

    OK, back on track........
