There is sometimes a misunderstanding when using the term "Coke Bottle" and "One Drop" tints.
some new 6 footers
Nice as usual. What's with the fin box?? Pin line?? I like the subtle wing or bump.. never really cared for the exaggerated wing.
Planer mods and fish in progress...the side exhaust on the p20st was horrible so it had to go, much better with vac hookup.
Nice! Clean cuts and a super clean floor.
It was only mentioned on Kazuma's insta the other day about that exhaust mod on top.
Yeah that was my comment. Unlike the exhaust chutes on older hitachi planers, the one made for the p20st only snaps on (& falls off easily); it is not held on by a swivel bracket. I decided to upgrade mine and put it centered on the planer. Otherwise the machine is ok, it has a 5.5 amp motor. The rear handle is a bit odd but I haven’t messed with that yet. Not fond of the power cord placement either. But the exhaust chute was the biggest bummer and that is much better now.
well there you go.. I'm just a backyard hobbiest with the new ryobi planer. I was going to get the P20ST but I liked the depth adjustment on the ryobi better. I haven't investigated mod-ing an on the fly adjustment yet.. but did play with the exhaust, putting a right elbow on it, with the hose coming up over my shoulder. I found it to actually mess with the planer balance and send vibrations into the cut, tearing the foam. Went back to straight off the side with the vacuum hose.. vibration gone.. I will rig a hose straight up to the ceiling eventually and give it another go..
Sadly here in Aust, we're somewhat limited to the available options on the market here.
white box , black resin
Zack - I think McDing thought the black was a pin line not a cut away in the box - what kind of box is it? We don't get those ones with the cut aways here in the states (at least I've never seen em) they seem like they would work better than the normal fu box.
