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.

I bought this planer to make a threshold for my sons house built in the 1800's. The floors between the 2 rooms went in different directions so with a simple jig I made and this planer he has a threshold. Nothing we could buy came close. great little tool.

I have used these safety planers at the lutherie lab at my community college, so I know what it can do. SteMac had them on sale, so I decided to have one for my garage woodshop. I can think of a few projects that could use a tool like this. Can hardly wait.

Excellent plane

Got this by mail within a week!
It's easy to use and works like I want it to.
I had to flatten an existing poplar guitar body for a drop top. Only 2 - 3 mm. And the Safe-T-planer did it's job without any problem.

Great tool with proper setup

This thing works like a charm in my drill press. It says to run it between 2500 and 3000 rpm, but my drill press can be set for 2250 or 3200 rpm, so I set it at 2250 -- worked fine at that setting. One caution is that you should heed the instructions that tell you to make sure that the platform you use to support the workpiece is absolutely flat and level with respect to the axis of the drill press -- ask me how I know..

StewMac Safe-T-Planer is perfect!!

By

Verified Buyer


I have a small shop so I am always looking for ways to do more with the tools I have. For example, my drill press oscillates so it doubles as a small drum sander. With the StewMac Safe-T-Planer, My drill press is effectively three tools in one!!

The Safe-T- Planer works great and I am so please with its performance. A big thank you to the folks at StewMac R&D!!!

Excellent tool, easy to use and works beautifully. I needed to lower a neck a fraction of an inch and it performed great! Much better than a router, faster and safer! I am impressed with this tool.
