Very good idea. I have been jointing some very heavy stock the last couple of days and I sure could have used these. Thanks for sharing.

When I read this tip in FW I did it to my push blocks. It is one of the greatest improvements I think you can make for face jointing on a jointer.

Cool. I couldn’t remember where I read the tip. What’s your name, and if you remember the Fine Woodworking issue, the issue number? I’ll add the reference to my Youtube description.

Thanks.
