The John Gage Planer On JSTOR

Description: IA, the Journal of the Society for Industrial Archeology is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes original material concerning the study, conservation and interpretation of industrial heritage, especially its physical manifestations. These were all wind-power mills with jigsaws, until, in the year 1777, one Samuel Miller patented a sawmill using a circular to planer Up to that time inventive progress in woodworking machinery was comparatively slow, but at the end of the eighteenth century there arose a remarkable man, Sir Samuel Bentham, who within a few years, invented and patented almost every known variety of woodworking machine.

Performing also the function of 4 sided planers and profiling machines, the Futura Woodmac moulders allow the following woodworking (depending on the model): board, straightening on 4 sides, planing on 4 sides, eliminating the crooked/raw part of the wood, perfect board, removing wood imperfections, profiling, excavations, handrails, door frames, skirting boards, frames, window frames, matchboarding, wood cutting, shutters and sills for windows, beams.

After the last cabinet I built, I made a committment to myself to stop working with sheet goods and focus on building furniture made from solid wood so my planer will definately see more use; however, its still so much more efficient to put a flat and square side on a piece of stock even if I’m going to turn to using hand planes that I doubt I’d ever stop using my jointer.

Other variances in the range of planer and thicknesser combinations include alternate functions such as dust extractors, portable stands, workbench attachments, exchangeable blades, as well as more consumer based add-ons such as warranties, to ensure the customer a working product. For the price, I cannot imagine any other cordless planer being a better performer either.

Thus, the planer heads on the BIGMASTER and TIMBERMASTER can be replaced quickly and easily with the intelligent automatic tool changer. You can counteract that by lifting up on the piece of wood as its going in and as long as it gets past the first roller and onto the blade then you can let go. Same on the out feed side. If you’re planing thin stock (wood less than three-eighths of an inch thick), you will need to use a carrier board. If he specializes in doing things that require a lot of edge glueing, then the planer should come first.

My portable planer is a 20 YO Ryobi 10″ that does all the small work, I love it. I can also plane rough lumber in it and it comes out flat, those little rubber rollers can’t flatten a cupped board like the big Rockwell can. On the flipside if I can get it running nice, it will be a really cool machine to have. And the trade-off is you get a super wide jointer, but you might be limited by the planer aspect. If you don’t, I’d listen to the advise above and build a jointing sled for your planer. The planer served me faithfully for many years, but a couple of months ago I accidentally wrecked the feeder rollers. The pictures make the planer appear cheap, but it’s almost entirely made of steel.
