Shop Talk Live 33: Best Bets for Jointer-Planer Upgrades

On this week's edition of Shop Talk Live, Ed introduces some new theme music that just might rub Matt the wrong way. Then, the team debates the usefulness of high-priced helical cutterheads in jointers vs. planers, and reveals the shocking truth regarding whether or not it's OK to soak dowels in water to fit them into oversized peg holes.

Plus, Fine Woodworking's own veteran furniture pro, Mike Pekovich, reveals an exceptional value for brass hinges and a brand-new bathroom-related Smooth Move
