Re: Strip: Strip Thickness
In Response To: Re: Strip: Strip Thickness ()

I have an 8' portable conveyor/roller system that serves as a tablesaw outfeed and planner infeed. Because this piece of "carrier plywood" does not touch the planner blades on it's own I can insert a 3-4' piece part way through the planner, butt the 8' piece against it then lay the strips on top for feeding.
My planner is not a bench top model. It is a very old Hitachi planner/jointer combo unit that sits about 30" off the floor and weighs about 250 tons :)
