Product Description
Turn Your Router into a 400mm (16" )Jointer. If you don’t have the space or the budget for a $10,000, 1,800-pound jointer in your shop (and, frankly, who does?), but you still want flat boards up to 410mm (16") wide, Woodpeckers new Board Mill is for you. Establishing that first flat face and square, straight edge can be a challenge on wider boards. How do you flatten a 300mm or 380mm wide board when you have a 150mm or 200mm jointer? Even within the capacity of your jointer, wide boards can be difficult to handle, particularly when it’s 38mm thick white oak, rock maple or other gnarly hardwood. Woodpeckers has taken a different approach to milling the first face and edge. Instead of wrestling your board across a jointer (that you don’t have), Keep the board stationary and move the cutter.
Our new Board Mill locks down that heavy, awkward board and puts your router in motion, following a defined plane to create flat faces and square edges accurately and safely. Your router will cut away warp, twist, bow and cupping on the face of your board. Once the face is flat, lock the lateral travel of the router and cut the edge of the board square to the just-milled face. Now your thickness planer has a true reference to follow and you have a straight, square edge to ride along your table saw rip fence. 
The Board Mill is optimized for stock from 19mm to 45mm in thickness. The cross-rail assembly rides directly on the long rails for stock up to 1-1/16". For stock between 27mm and 45mm just insert the riser blocks…no screws, nuts or bolts needed. The base model will handle stock up to 410mm wide and 1365mm long. There are also units with extended length capacities of 1975mm, 2585mm and 3194mm. 

Facing a board can sometimes mean removing a lot of material, so we built in dust collection. The dual-point pick-up collects chips equally well on either push cuts or pull cuts. The Y-connector is sized for 2-1/2" dust hose, which can connect to either a shop vacuum or a larger dust collector.

Already have Woodpeckers Slab Flattening Mill? The Conversion Kit includes the shorter-framed carriage, short cross rails and carriage stops you need to face and edge thinner stock. You’ll use the long rails that came with your Slab Flattening Mill. Just by switching cross rails and carriages you can surface thick, live edge slabs or straighten and square normal thickness stock.

Like all Woodpeckers tools, the Board Mill is precisely machined and carefully inspected in their Strongsville, Ohio factory (just south of Cleveland). (Offer Details)
