I have spent the past week going crazy on my new Oliver 8” Jointer. I can honestly say I don’t know how I ever got by without one. Or better yet why the hell I thought it was a good idea to use wood that wasn’t square. LOL Oh well…
In other news I put a deposit down to take Darrell Peart’s Blanket Chest class at Woodcraft in late April. It’s been a dream of mine to take that class and it looks like it’s going to be a reality. Gosh one day I may be a real honest to goodness furniture maker!
I will be honest about the Jointer though. It is a little underpowered. First chance I get to pick up a 3HP motor I am going to take it. Sucks because I just sold a 3HP 60C motor last month that would be perfect for it. I am going to upgrade to the Helical head but I don’t know if that is going to keep it from bogging down.
-- I wouldn't be so arrogant if you weren't such a moron!
