Pete I am stoked.I hope you do OK.Sounds like you took it farther than we did.While you are at it why not design a better grit drum,one that will acrually exhaust the dust without having to use a vac systemm.I once thought of a cutting head that consisted of a stacking system of blades.My thoughts were something similiar to the carbide dado sets for table saws on a smaller scale.It would be cross between a planer head and a grit drum...maybe the best of both worlds.One other thought is that this tool may be good for the boat guys and the carpenters.The long skil base is good and bad depending upon what you need it for,maybe you could design the base with tail inserts so you can change the overall length.This was a suggestion from a boat builder buddy who thinks he could sell a bunch of them if they were right..even at $1500.00 a pop.Check out a Magazine called "Wooden Boat" and you will see some folks with deep pockets.

Oh wow.... I want one of each. Those and that neat little portable bandsaw.... doc....
What, no mother-of-pearl handles??
Pete Just found this old Thread. Did you ever get this planer off the ground? Or are you making any of them now?
