I was getting frustrated with the jointer at work yesterday because it kept putting a twist in some table leg blanks I had glued up. The cut was also very choppy…
So I made this knife setting jig and tuned that baby up. Now the knives cut smooth as butter and level as can be. Love this thing! Made setting the knives accurately easy as pie!
This is a jig that can be found on Wood Magazine’s site here:
I will suggest you make one correction though. The diagram shows the pilot hole being 7/64” diameter and 5/8” deep, and the shank hole being (larger) 5/32” diameter and (deeper) 7/8”. I suggest reversing the depths…
Now to order find some 3/4” magnets and make one of these for MY shop… Oh. And order some dial indicator tips from MSC.
