I am very happy with the quality of cut I am getting with the Fussion blade, and have no reservations about gluing up the panels right off of the TS. Smoother and straighter than my jointer produces (granted, it’s a really old jointer).
My daughter came down and cut the biscuit joints and assisted with the glue up. I’m so glad she did, as we needed to move fast. We were much better organized and prepared than my first build, yet were still challenged to get it clamped up quickly.
After cutting all the biscuits in the first board she says to me “shouldn’t I have safety glasses on”
Doh!!!! I’m glad somebody was on the ball…. as it sure wasn’t me.
Here she is scraping the squeezed out glue off when we were all done.
