A jointer is used to create a straight surface on a wooden board.


  • 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.
