There seem to be a number of them west of Chicago, from what I can tell. Until the 80's, I had never heard of them.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Couple of things about the Bauer planer. First, here's a pic of the power switch. Near it, is a circuit breaker.

The switch has a removable yellow plug, that renders the switch non-operable for safety's sake.

Here are 2 pictures of the tilting area of the planer. This is of the outfeed table.



[image]



This is the other side of the outfeed table. The yellow arrow points to an adjustment screw/lock nut which only applies pressure from the side.

The red arrow points to the adjustment screw to either raise or lower the infeed or outfeed table.

Next is a pic of the outfeed table with a straight edge laying on top of it, as well as the bed under the cutter head, and pressure rollers.

As you can see, the right side is about the same height as the main bed, but the outfeed table is on an angle, coming from the main table.



[image]



This is still the outfeed table but the other side. It shows the same slope from the main table outward.

This is the infeed table and shows the same slope from the main table to the end of the table.



[image]



This is the opposite side of the infeed table, and has the same slope on it.

There is a piece of steel riveted to the side of both tables, and as such, there is no adjustment for leveling the table from front to back.



[image]



This is the underside of the outfeed table, and you can see the rivets as well as the extra piece of steel.



[image]



While there is an adjustment screw, it will primarily move the end of the bed while not raising the end nearest the main bed.

The manual only shows movement of the bottom screw for adjustment.

Since the snipe is currently very minimal, I will probably leave it alone for now.

After reading the manual. (gasp), yes I read the manual, and playing around a little bit, I continued with some extra work on the kitchen counter area.

I added some 2 x 3's under the plywood, with a temporary leg in the unsupported corner, for a temporary brace.

Oh, and we had a couple of inches of snow today, and supposed to be in the 60's over the weekend. Go figure.

Wahooooooooooooooo!

I finally finished the computer job I was working on. Got everything working, setup, and satisfied customer. YeeHaw.

Now it's time to get back to working on the motor home. Just didn't happen today. It should be tomorrow.

Time to update the spreadsheet. I picked up 4 pieces of 2 x 3 x 8' lumber at the box store. Cost of those are $9.12 for all 4 including tax.

I also bought a piece of 1/2" x 4 x 8 plywood, as well as a piece of 3/4" x 4 x 8 piece of plywood. Total cost of those 2 were $103.89.

Prior spreadsheet total was $8704.72. Adding $113.01 for the plywood and the 2 x 3's and we are now up to $8817.73.

About time to get framing again.
