I post this in the forum before, but feel it’s more apropriate to post here as a project

I build this jointer based on this design about 2 years a go, and has used it a lot, I even flatterned my work bench surface on it (12”x7’x5”). It worked flawlessly, I checked it reciently, it’s only about 5 thou out in the middle, very acceptable.

here’s a detailed blog of it

Amazing home-built tool, it would be great to have such a wide jointer. What kind of drive belt and pulley did you use? They look better machined than the typical v-belt setups I use.

Very nice build and I like the improvements to Matthias’ design that you made as well. One of these days I plan to make on of these. Yours is going into my favorites list.

Very interesting, I bet this inspires allot of wood workers, I myself have thought about this type build. Once I find a scrap cutter head.
