I recently bought a jointer off of craigslist and needed a pair of push blocks. These are simple blocks with mending plates on the bottom. I saw a lot of ideas on youtube. Some recommended using sanding blocks with a piece of mouse pad glued on the bottom. The sanding blocks were $8-$10 a piece and i couldn’t find any cheap mouse pads. So i just made some and used the idea for the mending plates.
I wondered about the plates marring the wood but it barely leaves a mark on most hard woods and whatever mark it does leave comes right off with the planer.
