1crazynordlander: I have two planers. A Delta TP400LS 12.5 inch like yours and a big 600
pound cast iron Delta 15 inch which has a bad feed gearbox (it has high
speed only) and Delta does not offer parts anymore. Thinking about doing
this but since my 220 volt 15 inch monster planer doesn't have a feed I
would use it. Overkill on the size maybe? I think I can rig up a variable
speed gear motor to run the feed rollers to make it a good planer again so
maybe get your plans for the TP400LS and sacrifice that one for the
jointer. Thoughts? Any ideas for a gear motor to run my feed rollers on my
15 inch? I can send pictures if you like.
eugenerk: Hey Matthias, are there any reasons other than right handedness and
convention that prevent you from just turning the Jointer around and
feeding from left to right, in order to avoid having to work over the large
Swapster .com: 2:10 cracks me up.
Mike Cunningham: couldn't of you just put the motor on the otherside
sallgood: Why do so many of you feel useless from watching this video? Just buy
Matthias' plans for the machine and build it. Take your time, be careful
and you will get it.
woodsprout: Christschool, I can understand that feeling in comparing myself to
Mattias. But consider that he grew up around a custom sawmill/woodshop.
Devon Thibeault: In China, Lu Ban Jing was a carpenter, engineer, and architect in 5th
century BC China. He was deified as the god of carpenters after his death.
You are doing a good job of becoming the modern equivalent.
Deestainglass01: You are a very smart man and I enjoy your videos very much. Looking
forwarded to more. Thank you.
Александр Паневин: Мужик, -ты такой бедный, что не можешь купить нормальный инструмент?
Заработать на эти станки не очень сложно, а нормальный заводской - всегда
безопасней и удобней! Самоделки уровня СССР. Тогда у нас мастерили, от
безысходности, но сейчас можно купить просто ВСЁ, что пожелаешь, даже в
России! -Просто, зачем?
christschool: Sometimes Matthias just makes me want to quit and sell my tools. I'll
never have these skills. I feel like such a loser when I see his
Scott Varena: Amazing engineering skills!! What a great innovative mind! Great job!!
berighteous: That's so cool.
John Simonetti: What is the lowest rpm motor reccomended to power the cutter head?
UsernameFECKLE: This thing is TOO impressive.
Evan Zane: Matthias, I just replaced the cutter head on my dewalt planer and was
contemplating using the old straight knife cutter head to make one of
these. I now need a motor to power the head. do you think I could use a
variable speed router motor and have a shaft/key made, and get a pulley to
mount on it? Thanks! -EZ
Harry Paul Garcia: Immense respect to you for your many custom designed, engineer'd, and
fabricated tools. So well thought out.
lowrider9367: How many hr's do you figure you have in your planer?
paulo dasilva: SOY DE ARGENTINA MATIAS HELLO AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF AVAILABLE PLANS
BANCON THIS BRUSH IN ANY WEBSITE ?
Carl Houston: Good job! And as a final impressive touch, you used "John Deere" Green!
richard ebbole: you were lucky to have such a father....
realemonful: I have to say that's pretty impressive
Thaabiet Barnes: can you show me how to make a really good drill press out of wood?
Kvasir: Its amazing you made that! Where is good place to find a belt?
urbanbehive8: i cant believe you dont do a demonstration at the end...
jeph4life: what exactly is a jointer?
Drunkun_Munky: I could build that in my sleep, but then again I could also fly a dragon
vladimir51ful: The drawings are in inches?
8brandt8: I'm not worthy. Nice job.
Peter Tyrrell: A really great job, you are certainly are an inspiration. If I were to copy
your design, I might support the main bearings with something a little
stronger just in case something overloads the head.
Thanks for sharing.
AdventuresInDIY: Homemade 12" jointer made from a small planer and wood.
David Butler: What the hell. You're such bullcrap Matthias. You don't do things that any
person who isn't already you, could do. But seriously, awesome.
Jason Bye: So 3 years on, do you ever use your old 6" jointer anymore? If I built a
jointer like this is it practical and accurate enough to be my only
UreaSmith: you're smaaaart!
Gonzo Charvel: Would be an awesome experience to apprentice under you.
mieguistumas: 150 pounds? I would have guessed it is lighter. Does the motor weigh much?
EDDY TAYLOR: NICE.
Lotfi Benredjem: You are the great!
ponkkaa: Excellent piece of work. When I finish making my table saw I'll be heading
on to a jointer. Thanx for posting this. Btw...there is no such thing as a
stefan ivanov: good job :)
tai anh tai: quá hay ,good
Dave Webber: Like your safety boots lol :O) another brill vid
Joerg Johann: a class planer great
blwizard: Very clever how about any ideas for making a Radial arm saw
Robbie westhoff: Amazing what creative minds can do, awesome videos!
PJCmashtun: That is fantastic!
Peter Owens: Those timber/ply bearing blocks scare the hell out of me.
I'd like to hear how it stands up after a few hundred hours of shop work.
Credit however: it's a clever adaptation, well executed on the whole.
palabful: good man. thank you so much, jedi master:)
Mark Collier: You are a very impressive person. Thanks.
