The Modified Makita KP0810 Planer is now available! The front shoe of this planer opens at an angle similar to Skil 100 (rather than up and down) which provides the desired entry into each pass / cut when shaping a surfboard.
We have available both "Pre-Built" modified planers and "DIY Modification Kits" for those who want to save money and build themselves. The DIY kits were designed to also work with the European/Australian version of the Makita KP0810.
Big kudos to Pete Casica for this design and we're stoked to bring such a solid tool to the surfboard industry. Please click link here to view this product on our website.
