Rules

  • To prevent nicks on the blades, please check your board carefully and remove nails, screws, and any other metal bits.
  • Work with pure wood only, please! Masonite, for example, will quickly dull the blades. Even plywood, particleboard, MDF, and the like will shorten the blade life because of the glue content.

Instructions

Set the cutting depth

The depth adjustment ...

Turn it On

Maintenance

Two critical adjustments need to be maintained on the jointer. The infeed and outfeed tables need to be parallel to within 0.001 in. or so, and the blades need to be 0.001 in. higher than the outfeed table.

Things that Need to be Done

  • The sawdust chute dumps directly onto the floor. Perhaps a box or a dust collection hose would make cleanup more convenient.
