The jointer and the planer are the indispensable pair of tools to get “four square lumber” - boards that are straight, square, and stable.
Power-tool expert Roland Johnson explains the principles of how each tool works and how to get the best results when using them.
▪ Cutter head technologies
▪ A foolproof technique to accurately set straight blades
▪ How to precisely align the infeed and outfeed tables to the cutterhead
▪ How to accurately adjust the jointer fence to 90 degrees, or to any other angle
Johnson also shows how to identify the different types of warp that might be found in roughsawn lumber and how to eliminate them with a jointer and planer.
