Rocket scientist Greg Colegrove applied his skills to figuring out a way to reduce snipe when using his portable planer. He designed a rigid, height-adjustable auxiliary bed from inexpensive materials and hardware. He explains how to build the feed table and platform, how to mount the planer and table to the platform, how to fix and adjust them, and how to check the planer and depth-of-cut settings. A detailed project plan shows how it all fits together. He also includes information on building a portable base, which you might need if space is an issue. From Fine Woodworking #119
