Shop Talk Live 47: Compromising Photos from FWW

This week we start things off with the harrowing (OK, maybe that's an overstatement) story of a shopmade gift that fell flat on its face. Then, it's off to the races as we answer a whole host of woodworking questions ranging from epoxy and spokeshave sharpening--to jointer tech and purchasing lumber off of Craigslist.

New Visual Shop Stumper Makes its Debut

Plus, we're offering up a set of Rockler Bench Cookies to a listener who can correctly identify the guitarist seen in the photo at the top of this post. If you know which Fine Woodworking staffer that is, be sure to email your answer to shoptalk@taunton.com. Be sure to write "Visual Shop Stumper" in the subject line. We'll select one correct answer at random and that person will receive a set of Bench Cookies for their effort. Note: Do not post your answers here in the blog post--any answers posted here will be disqualified from the random drawing.

The item is located here: http://www.leevalley.com/en/Wood/page.aspx?p=44484&cat=1,43072,43078&ap=1

Cheers!
Love the show, keep up the great work!

Avispex Avispex writes: I have a quick comment about the first question from Podcast 47. The question raised several issues about purchasing a jointer. I completely agree with Matt's advice about finding a vintage cast iron Delta 6" jointer or even another maker such as Yates, Oliver, Powermatic, Walker/Turner/ Boice Crane, etc. I also agree with Mike in that if you can get a good deal on an 8" jointer, go ahead and get that first. The point I want to raise is that the person asking the question wrote that he wanted to use the jointer to clean up cuts from his table saw. Unless you are making a board and are jointing the ripped surfaces that will be glued together, normally I don't think you should need to return to the table saw after ripping to width. If your table saw cuts are leaving a rough or burned surface, I think that needs to be addressed at the table saw and then hopefully that can be tuned to the point where you will be leaving a clean enough cut that it can be cleaned with a small hand plane or through sanding and not resort to going back to the jointer for that purpose.
