Making a $3000 Tool from Spare Parts and Scrap Wood – Full Build



My 9 Project Plan Bundle (LIMITED TIME):
I made this jointer using the cutter head from my old, broken thickness planer and scrap plywood. The other parts were salvaged or I had them already.
I originally bought the motor to build a new table saw, but used it for this instead. I did have an old pump motor that would have been powerful enough, but it spun the wrong way and was too difficult to reverse. I had the steel for the infeed and outfeed tables for several years, again bought to build a new table saw.
This video is compilation of 11 videos I made while building the jointer 5 years ago. It took me several months to finish, and those videos are spread out over that time.
The jointer has been working problem-free since I built it and gets used regularly.
Here’s a playlist for those original videos, if you want more details:
