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)

I really like the Safe-T-Planer and these replacement blades are really well made. I had to replace my original blades only because of my own mistake and I was using the planer of really hard wood doing aggressive and deep cuts. So, if you plane very dense woods, take your time.

Disappointed

I have recently ordered one, and I cannot use it.
The description states that it fits any 1/2 chuck, but this is not true.
I own a Bosch pbd40 drill press with a keyless chuck, and it just does not work, because of the 3 sided shank. I tried to lock the shank in place with the chuck on the rounded edges of the shank, but then if I try to turn the tool to check if it stays in place, it just falls down way too easily.
I did not dare to even try to use it...
The description should really be updated ...

I’ve wanted one of these for better than a year now. Super cool. I don’t have room for a real planer, so this fits the bill. The price isn’t bad either, although I believe the 15% sale on it started quite literally the day after I purchase for full price. I was gonna wait to review because I work too many hours at my “occupation” to have made the time to play with it, yet. But I keep seeing this reminder in my mailbox, so I’m doin it now! I will play with it soon. I swear by all that is holy, I am going to rock the heck out of this thing. I am going to plane things even Bob Vila never even heard of. Like, dry spaghetti, a sideways stack of printer paper, the end of a pencil. Everything crooked I have is going to be straight and smooth. With God as my witness.

Looks very good!

I have only had a trial go with this tool and so far it has been excellent!
It cut cleanly and left a nice surface that only required a light sanding.
This tool was brought to save me from doing excessive planing.
So far it looks like it is going to fit the bill
Will give a review appraisal when I have utilised the tool correctly.

It works as smooth as silk. I was skeptical about this planers abilities but I was really surprised how well it does its work. Excellent value especially at the sale price.

Poor Revision of Classic Tool

By

Verified Buyer


Unlike the original version, no longer manufactured, this one comes in two pieces: the cutter and the shank. Worse, they have a right-hand thread. So if you're using a keyless chuck, and grasp the tool while you're closing the chuck, it will spin off from its shank. The shank is 3-sided, so you can't put a wrench on it while you're closing the chuck. Perhaps a thread-locking compound might solve this issue, but the instructions don't even mention the problem at all.
