I can always do with a bit of advice .... Would enjoy owning this video!
Hoping for a win: it's never too late to learn something new!
Lumber problem? What problem? You still have more storage space, right?! Ha ha! How can one ever have too much wood?
Very nice work. I like the overall concept of your design, and especially the proportions and execution.
Yup! Want it! Please add my name.
I'd learn from this one!
I have been using an Inca jointer-planer (no longer made) since the mid '80's ---- not perfect, but among its virtues are Tersa blades. This system originated in commercial equipment. To change them, bonk the cutter head with a piece of scrap wood, to loosen, slide them out and, either turn them over and re-insert them with a new edge out, or dispose of them when both are worn. The blades are available with either HSS or carbide tips. Then, turn the machine on and they're perfectly re-set from the force of the spinning cutter head. This process takes five minutes, and the machine gives flawless cuts. My Inca uses 10" blades. I'm not up to speed with newer planers, but I've often wondered why this approach hasn't been more emulated. Maybe when FWW delivers on its promise to review jointer-planers, the reviewer will discuss this approach.
Please include my name as well --- hand plane proficiency is on my skills-to-acquire list!
Having amassed a pile of wenge for a project, I'd be grateful for more specific comments about the problems you encountered working with wenge. I know that it tends to splinter, but what other problems did you encounter? Was it mostly that it is very hard? Also, what finish did you use for the table? Thanks.
Nice work, by the way!
I added an outfeed table to my SawStop by using a wooden fitting, bolted to the outfeed rail. This supports the extension, which is piano hinged at sixteen inches from the saw to allow the rest of the outfeed table (thirty inches long ---this length is limited by the height of the saw's table from the floor) to fold. It has folding legs at the end (Rockler hardware). The overall length of the extension is 48 inches, with the end fifty-eight inches from the trailing edge of the blade, ensuring that a 4x8 sheet of plywood will easily rest on the table after being cut. Works very well, and adds only sixteen inches when not extended.
