Planer Sled for my Ridgid 13" planer
« on: March 12, 2018, 11:39 PM »
Hello Guys,

I was wondering if a planer sled will work to flatten boards rather than buying a new jointer because as of right now I cannot justify the cost of a new jointer or space required.

What is the simplest planer sled I can build? Is the one with the hot air glue gun and wedges?  ::)

Thanks for your input!  [smile]
