As I mentioned in a previous post my lovely wife allowed me to purchase some new tools and one is the Jet JBM-5 hollow chisel mortiser. I set it up as per the directions but one thing I wasn’t clear about was the setting of the drill bit versus the chisel – how do I know whether it should be 1/16th or 3/16th or any other distance. Other then that it is one slick machine and a lot nicer then a chisel.
Okay so there is more questions – can anyone break it down sweet and simple on which direction to run a router. Clockwise, counterclockwise, inside a pattern, outside a pattern, in a router table, in a router table backwards ect… to a novice like me it is greek and I can only speak english and bad english.
One last one for now (Sorry) when I am gluing things up do I wipe the glue off while wet, wait till its dry and scrape, or use a wet cloth and wash it off. I use Titebond II – should I switch to Titebond III and why?
Thanks for the help if I am helpable (Is that even a word?)
