Re: Planer sled for warped wide boards

I made the "planer sled" and it works good. I fixed small blocks on each side of the cross bar to prevent any movement when planing or moving the jig around with a board. I used the jig with 8/4 and 6/4, 9" to 10" wide, hard maple for a dining table and six chairs. The jig save me a lot of time to get the fisrt flat surfaces of the boards. The down side is the heavy weight when returning to the infeed side. You must be carefull when it comes out the thickness planer if the board is shorter then the sled, because of the heavy weight it is a bit unstable and the last end may hit the knives of the planer, a roller outfeed stand is a must. I have a 15" thickness planer from General.

Very good jig, it's worthwhile
