This project is based on Arduino with an LCD display, to control a stepper motor that will move precisely and/or repeatedly the height of a Saw or a Planner,or a Router,ecc. The idea is to convert older or classic woodworking machines into electronic visualized and controlled machine with a modest expense. You would be able to use this project on your actual woodworking equipment with very small and simple modification of your machine (add the stepper motor with reduction gear and a limit switch).
