modifying an old wood jointer
#5
  
I had an old wooden jointer with a loose handle. So, just to experiment, I removed the handle, sliced off a part of the body, cut a new mortise, and made a razee plane. I also flattened the sole using my No. 8 Stanley and bedded a short length of brass rod for a strike button. It didn't take too long. I'll see how it works once the glue--and the linseed oil--dry:

Cool! Now, do you need to lower your bench an inch, too?
