I have watched videos, and read descriptions on setting jointer knives, and wondered why most of these people don’t lock the cutter head in position.
You mentioned using a wedge, which is the way I have always done it.
I didn’t see the wedge in your pictures, I put mine in front.
When I’m done the small wedge and the rest of the tools, for setting the knifes, are put away in one spot for the next time
Great little jig set.
I was going to buy some of those little magnets, for other things, but the shipping was as much as the magnets.
I never thought about the hobby store, great idea, there is one close by, I have been to, and they probably have those little magnets, so I will go check it out. Thanks
