Will (Heartwood), MP100 planer head $5895 right now without the track(because it rides on my LT15 track). It's a whole separate head from your sawmill head. Great tool. A 12 inch hand held planer cannot do what the MP100 does. It quickly planes a beam parallel to the bed. Rotate your first planed side 90 degrees opposite of the uprights. Use a framing square to check how square that planed side is to the bed. Shim the beam to make it square to the bed. Now plane your second face(which is adjacent to the first face). Now you can rotate either of these faces down against the bed and plane the opposite face and it will be parallel to the face your referencing against the mill bed. This assumes that you have initially adjusted your MP100 to plane parallel to the bed. I've only done this once - 2 years ago. It has not moved since.
flyingparks, YES.Here you can see both heads on the mill. Put the saw head down past the timber at least 4 feet and then Use the planer head. I have a 4" vacuum hose with a Dust Right quick attack from Rockler that I stick on the planer outlet. It's got an 1100cfm Jet dust collector motor/blower. It's plumbed to the next room where I have a 4'x4'x8' chip collection box that I can pick up with the forklift. If you don't, those chips will pile up fast. (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
