When setting up a jointer outfeed table, should the tip of the cutter be dead even with the surface of the outfeed table, or should it actually be fractionally higher? Ideally, the outfeed table should be dead even with the cutter at the top of it's arc. The trick with the ruler is that it translates a very tiny vertical error into a much more readable ...

One option no one has mentioned and actually works very well is a power washer. it can take bark and dirt off and scour the wood clean. This is actually the preferred way when cleaning up root balls for furniture etc. Depending on the type of wood you are using, many species don't need much more than peeling the bark clean.

Doesn't make any sense to me why you'd have the blade higher than the out feed table. Since it would then always be cutting 'that much' more than what your gage says you are cutting off. Including if you put your infeed table at '0'. For me personally, it makes sense that if I have a nice done joint and I set the intable to 0, and I run the board again, it ...

But in the manual for a similar vintage model (view here on Manuall.co.uk), this is identified as the Contact Guard, possibly a last line of defence in case the user breaks, discards, or chooses not to use the sliding plastic guard.

Although not foolproof, you can generally figure out which style to use in the saw by the way the blade connects to the saw. In general, if you need a tool to change the blade, it's a U-shank. If you can do it without a tool it's a T-shank. There are exceptions, and this looks to be one. Some especially old jigsaws take a U-shank blade with an additional ...

This is an old question, but it still deserves an answer. Would this type of connector be structurally as sound as a knockdown joint? For the intended use, definitely. For connecting the frame of your Murphy bed, no. What must I consider when using such a connector? You need to think about the size and direction of the load. Bed rail connectors have a ...
