IF it works as well as t looks ; you did very well!

My Jet was $400 on a very good sale-so you saved a few "grennies" too!

Great job on the build. I admire guys that build their own tools.

It's so nicely coloured and simplyfied in it's design, but still so efficient. All is very tidy and detailed, very smooth execution.

Thanks everyone.

Doc. Not sure how long it took. I have worked on it in spare time over 3 months.

It cost $15.00 to build. Had to buy bearings, springs, and the bolts. Everything else I had.

I love shop built machines. I particularly like how quick and easy the belt changes are on this one. Very well thought out. I noticed that you were sanding an inside curve in your YouTube demo. You might want to consider making a convex platen to make that a little easier.

Thanks Lazyman. I plan on making a convex platen soon. I just got lazy and took a short cut (no pun intended).

Hah! I am all about lazy. I just looked at some of your other shop built machines. You build some fine stuff. After making my own belt sander recently, I've been thinking about making a jointer so I'm going to put that one in my favorites list.

Fantastic, I have wanted to buy one for years, and only recently thought of making one, your project just solidified my decision to build one.

I only hope I do as nice a job as you did. I just love how well you built everything, no shortcuts because it is a utilitarian tool, quality woodworking reflects the character of the person doing it…...

Very well executed. Congratulations!
But can detail some parts? Engine specification? Used material? Plywood? The way the arm fits on the base?

Thanks,
