Hi all, just picked up a 6” jointer. A bit rusty as the previous owner apparently doesn’t take care of tools. I picked up som enaval jaeely from Canadian Tire, and tomorrow, I’m going to give the exp[osed parts a good cleaning, then paste wax to keep tem shiny.
I plan to take it apart and do a proper cleaning and re-paint, bring it back to life; but in the meantime, I have some top plates to joint. I’m re-building an oud, an arabian instrument that is the direct great-great-grandfather of the lute, and hence the guitar. I traded a little electric guitar for it, then broke the top! Picked up some Sitka Spruce top plates from a tone-wood place in Chilliwack up the valley. I have to joint the edges in order to glue them together properly. I’m going to use hide glue, it’s traditional in lutherie.
I’ll post pics as I get to it.
