Wooden 12" jointer plans for sale
12" (30 cm) wide jointers are very expensive and heavy to buy, but small 12" thickness planers
can be very inexpensive. These plans are for converting one of these small planers
into a 12" Jointer that is inexpensive and light.
This jointer is designed to be buildable mostly from parts of an inexpensive 12" thikness planer
and wood. Other than screws, the only metal parts are some 3/8" (10 mm) steel rods, and some
1/8" (3 mm) metal plates to put onto the wooden tables.
The plans include:
