I have a two part question. being new to woodworking, you may have to talk to me like a 5 year old with your answers lol.
Ok, first question is about my planer… I have a Delta 12” planer, and it has started to, for lack of a better word, gouge the ends of work. When i put the piece through, the first roller grabs it and before the second roller after the blades can grab it, it planes about 3” of the piece lower than the rest, so i end up with the ends of my piece being about 1/32 less than the rest. my question is, could this be that my blades are dull? or is there some other problem inside the planer.
Second, I’m redoing our dining table top, and im wondering what is the best method to attach it to the base, its a four leg set-up not a pedastal. the wood is going to be 1” thick maple.
Thanks for reading
