Guys, I have a Delta shoe box planer like this and was wondering has anyone added a top roller assembly to pass the wood back and forth? It only has the one center roller now and the wood doesn't stay in place. I would like to wind up with something like this??
Folks, another long project in our saga of refinancing our home through the VA. We are now neck deep in tear out and rebuild of our entire second story master bedroom balcony and shade structure for the patio below. The wood was dry-rotted, I let it go waaay too long. And now I have it all ripped out, and I got a stack full of wonderful Rough Doug Fir for the project. While I have been performing the structural portion of this project, wife and kids have been painting the boards. We purchased some 6" mini rollers 3/4 nap. The problem is the fibers from the roughsawn lumber coat the rollers to the point that they become a hardened mess almost, just imagine a tiny splinters getting entangled in the nap. We need a thick nap, because the lumber is rough, but at the same time, the nap gets clogged with the fibers. Any suggestions on a type of roller to use are greatly appreciated. Spraying is out of the question because of our proximity to neighbors and we don't really have anywhere to set up for that. Plus, my wife and kids are having some wonderful "bonding" moments during this project, I'd rather keep them painting as a team. Here is a few images of what I am doing. The old balcony and deck and shade structure before. Shade structure is gone. Balcony gone. About two thirds of the lumber is sitting here, the rest is in our shop. The painting operation. This is a complete removal and replace, nothing will be used over, accept the ledgers against the house, they are in great condition and bolted firmly to the home. Thanks VA for forcing me off me arse!
