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.

Use the Safe-T-Planer for:

- Unjoined guitar tops and backs
- Unbent guitar sides
