Intro

A jointer is used to create a straight surface on a wooden board. It can also be used to create a second straight surface at a right angle to the first straight surface.

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

The power switch is located on the front of the base.

Turn it Off

The power switch is located on the front of the base.

Maintenance Info

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.

FAQ

  1. What is a jointer? Wikipedia has an excellent article on the Jointer.
  2. Is there an online video that discusses jointer table/cutter alignment? Yes: jointer adjustments

ToDo

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