Another victim of the slippery slope!

My experience was similar. I needed to take a skim pass on some rough lumber for a project and discovered that my jointer blades were AFU and I was not in a position to replace them right away. I broke out a #5 I had picked up some weeks earlier at a yard sale and soon had it dialed in and the shavings were flying.

Now, I have several, a handful of users and a bunch waiting for me to rehab them and get them back in service. And my jointer blades still need to be replaced.
