I have the Porter Cable 6” benchtop jointer. I’ve never sharpened the knives and now I am getting uneven cutting on my workpieces—when I make a bunch of passes part of the piece is cut deeper than the rest. I’m going to check to make sure the fence is 90 to the table but I figure it’s time to sharpen the blades.
I’d really like to try to sharpen them in place since I hear it can be a pain to get them setup right again. Anyone have a good (read: not too complicated) method for sharpening in place? Any jig I can buy that makes it easy? I’m a novice so making complicated jigs probably wont work.
I came across this video on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN9cE5aNCFo it looks like he is using a jig.
Any advice is appreciated.
