Giuseppe Gaddi's homemade jointer

Giuseppe writes:

Hello Matthias

I got on very well with your Projects, I just had to apply some changes with regard to the rods for mounting the motor. I also had to build mine 26 cm instead of 31.7 cm because I used parts from a smaller planer. To me it's ok.

I tried it and it is magnificent. As for the frame, I have made it entirely from 18 mm and 12 mm birch plywood. I also built a stand for it.

Matthias comments:
Giuseppe later added a lifter to lift the stand off its wheels. I don't have any means to lock the wheels on mine, and even on my uneven basement floor, the jointer sometimes rolls away on me.

The black knob is for adjusting belt tension.

Giuseppe also previously built a bandsaw:
