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)

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.

Great tool!

By

Verified Buyer


This is a very well made tool and delivers on it’s promise. Speed is critical to make a nice cut and don’t forget the holdowns.
Overall, a nice addition to my shop which has limited space for a full sized planer.

Results depend mostly on the wood. I would give it 5 stars for ebony & cocobolo, 3 stars for wood that is softer,as black walnut, rosewood and pines. These are the only woods that I have had a chance to use it on so far. I can say it is much better on the hard, oily woods. I also found it to be better with shallow cuts, 1/16" to 3/32". Within these parameters I am very satisfied with this product.
