Makita Planer Modification Kit ONLY




This is the one and only Makita Modification Kit created by Casica Tech.  Convert your stock Makita KP0810 into a surfboard shaping planer.  This planer was selected over other models since it is the only planer available that has sliding front shoe like a Skil 100 and is entirely made in Japan.  The shoe feature provides smooth tapered cuts and ease of starting cuts since the bottom opening of the cutters is variable width, not a fixed opening as other planers where the shoe moves only up/down.  Kit advantages: The Makita KP0810 Planer is available worldwide, so customers can purchase the planer in their country’s voltage; no converter needed. There is no other shaping planer or kit worldwide available like this. For domestic customers the kit has a cost advantage, but they should read all the instructions first and determine if they can install it properly.  See PDF Instructions for self installation of kit (below).  Vacuum Port sold separately.

Here is a list of the modifications:

– Depth control: Zero to 1/8” max depth in 1/4 turn of knob (90°). This is done using a
redesigned cam made of Delrin plastic which is a hard, self-lubricating bearing material.
The knob is an actual Skil 100 type (early version) and related parts are CNC machined
billet aluminum.

– Rear handle: This is made from a Skilsaw HD handle which is the same angle as the
Skil 100 planer. Sheet metal brackets are laser cut and machine formed.

Disclaimer/warning: if anything goes wrong with your installation there will be a charge to reinstall and the customer will be liable for shipping both ways.
