Presently, Planck's constant is a fundamental constant that can not be derived from other constants. Assis developed a model based on an extended Weber-type potential energy, that allows calculating gravitational-type forces from neutral oscillating electric dipoles. Here we show that the maximum possible point-mass in his model equals the Planck mass which allows us to derive Planck's constant and the fine-structure constant. We match the exact order of magnitude only requiring a pre-factor that is present in all Weber-type theories and has to be determined empirically. This classical model allows to link electromagnetic, gravitational and quantum properties with one approach.
