« Part 30: Sailing along Part 31 of Maybe the beginning of a larger project series Part 32: IT FLOATS!!! »

I have proved tha Robertson screws are, indeed, harder than my planer blades :-(

I was working on a new and improved tiller for 816 and was using up some leftover/recycled boards. The daft part is that this was the second tiller I was making today (didn’t like the first one) and had carefully made sure there were no screws in that piece, the piece that had the screw was the offcut from the first piece! You apparently have to chech EACH piece LOL!

Oh well, they were old blades so it isn’t their first nick. Now I can clean up all the boards in that pike and then put on some new blades:-)

Thanks Robert, this wasn’t a technological failure it was more of a operator error. I just didn’t stop to think about what I was doing.

Yup Mike ouch…this is what I get for not paying attention.

Auuuch
I have invested in a cheap metal detector for recycle wood.
Best thoughts,

Tell me about it. Nicked my jointer knives in a 60’s model jointer that took me 6 hrs to get set perfect. At least most planer blades are easy to change. You have that going for you.
