About This Item

Create smooth, planed surfaces using your drill press
Our Safe-T-Planer is the affordable way to add a planer to your shop. In your drill press, it planes wood to any thickness, leaving it smooth and ready for sanding.

Plane large or small pieces
The Safe-T-Planer cuts a path 2-3/4" wide. Large surfaces are handled by making multiple passes.

    Use the Safe-T-Planer for:
  • Solid guitar bodies
  • Necks and pegheads
  • Peghead overlays
  • Nut and saddle blanks
  • Fingerboards
  • Unjoined guitar tops and backs
  • Unbent guitar sides

High speed steel cutters
The Safe-T-Planer is machined from aluminum with a steel shank. Its three high-speed steel cutters are heat-treated for durability. Each cutter features a spare edge, to double the working life.

Fits any 1/2" drill press chuck. Comes with instructions, including how to make a simple plywood planing table for your drill press.

Replacement Cutters are sold in a set of 3. These cutters fit the StewMac Safe-T-Planer, and are not compatible with other brands.

Width of cut: 2-3/4" (69.85mm)
Cutter depth: 1/4" (6.35mm)
Overall diameter: 3-1/8" (79.38mm)

high precision tool

By

Verified Buyer


great little planer. I especially like the safety aspect of the tool and it saves space in the shop.
I use it for planning and thicknessing wood close to dimension and finishing up thickness with the luthiers friend sanding station, another great tool for any shop. I highly recommend the safe-T-planer, don't know how I got along without it.

Liked the item. Well made.

By

Verified Buyer


I was impressed with the quality of this item. Blades were very sharp and easily cut through some well seasoned maple I had. Probably would have had even better results if I had a better drill press.
Instructions were a great help and I recommend following them. Helped a lot with the set up and finished result.

Much more useful than I expected

By

Verified Buyer


I needed to make (2) 1mm shims for a double bass neck that had fallen off. I was able to make 1.5mm shims with the safety planner without breaking the wood. That was just what I needed to insure a solid and tight fit. Worth every penny!

Nifty tool

By

Verified Buyer


I don't know that I will use it a lot since I have other machinery but I'm sure the times I'll need it, I'll be very glad I have it. I did try it out and just like every other tool in my shop, if its kept sharp, it will do exactly what I need it to.

Perfect for small planing jobs

By

Verified Buyer


Perfect tool for small planing jobs. Especially for parts that would not go through a regular planer due to an angle or curve in the part.
