Woodpecker Slab Flattener

To router a slab of any size is so time consuming though.

Probably true but if it’s a once or twice a year job then justifying any other options is quite hard.

Perhaps there are enough folk working near a Lucas Mill owner to come together and buy a planing disc and a sanding disc for the occasional use.

The 20hp Briggs is a big bonus and it will plane almost any length using extensions and a width of up to five feet

The planing disc costs around£1000. Not sure about the sander, but it looks reasonable compared to the sort of money discussed above.

A dedicated slabber would certainly be easier than using a chainsaw slabber.
