I’m excited today, I bought a planer! I have never owned one, but i love having tools, not sure when i will use it, but i know i will. Any how its a Ridgid R4330. Cant wait to need it!

You will use it soon enough:)
A planer is a great tool to have.

Do you have a dust collector and a jointer?

Funny thing, I just bought a new Rigid table saw from Home Depot today as well!

Planers are a nearly indispensable tool. The only thing is finding a place to store it. Build yourself one of those flip top jobs for it.

No dust collector or a joiner yet. Thorreain, i like your motto! Brian, i need to build a little cart for my bandsaw and drill press, I might put this below since i wont use very often. Not too sure yet. I might run a board thru it today just for fun.

Congrats on your new planer. Even though you don’t have jointer, you can make a sled that will allow you to plane a boar or plank on both sides and to get an even thickness. If you search the web for planing sleds you will probable find a lot of them. If you subscribe to Fine Woodworking website you can search for one there as they had an article on one some years ago.

If you are going to try it out make sure it’s bolted or clamped down…..

Have a DeWalt planer, and it is SO handy. I keep it on top of a Harbor Freight roll-around tool cart. The tool cart is made of four angle legs and two “trays”. I installed the top one upside down, so I had a flat surface. The planer and my belt/disk sander stay on the cart, against the wall, until I need them. You might be able to see what I’m talking about, in the photo.

Happy Wooding!!
