I put myself down for this.
I should probably spend money on something more importanter, but the pay due date is a couple days after my birthday, so fudge it.
It's a Kickstarter, so fingers crossed the thing actually gets delivered.

@Domon have you used an electric hand planer much?
I have some boards that I need to flatten and bring to thickness but theyre long enough that moving them around in the shop and through the benchtop planer is a pain in the ass.

I'm assuming the boards are wider than the electric planer width? It's going to be a pain without some really good technique. If you're just jointing the edges of boards it's great for that as long as your technique is stable. Watch out for snipe at the end though it's easy to dig in

Id just cart the planer outside. Or see if you can point your infeed or outfeed at a window or door

The boards are only 6 - 8 ft long and about 6" wide
Ill just move some shit around in the shop to accommodate I guess
Been telling the wife Id make a dining room table with this material and I guess I should at least pretend Im getting started on it at some point:p

Right tool for the job and all that, I'm sure there's a few but most the hand electric cleaners are only 4 in. Way easier just to move some stuff in the shop I think

I would use the benchtop planer for that, but mine's mounted to a cart that I can roll outside.

The electric hand planer I have on hand is kind of a pile of shit, though. 4", and it doesn't have the guts to power through anything harder than pine.
