Homemade Planer Boards & Mast

Recommended Posts

A while ago I posted how I adapted my front seat post to be able to insert my planer mast.

Just another idea If it helps.

The only thing I didn't include was I installed a piece 3/16 inch SS plate under the seat base for re-enforcement

I have just finished adapting my front seat post to be able to mounty planner mast in. After i figured what i needed for spacers. I bought a 3 ft piece of nylon 66 from McMaster Carr on line, that i cut four 8in long pieces from. It just happened that i could use a standard thickness they sold. 5/16 inch thick. I laid out where the spacers were to be mounted, drilled clearance holes in the post and drilled and tapped corresponding holes in the spacers. The spacer material cost about $6, pretty cheap. The last thing I did was to drill a hole though the seat post and the planer mast to keep keep the mast height where i wanted it and to keep it from rotating in the post.

Hope this helps.
