Topic tags/keywords: resource jointer milling

Hi Lumberjocks!

I’m located in north Austin and I do not own my own jointer yet. I am working on a workbench top. At the moment it is in 3 sections that need to be fitted to each other. I’ve done all of the planing by hand so far, but these last two joints need some power tool work.

I am asking for someone to either let me use their jointer or joint these parts for me. I am willing to pay or barter.
I have my labor to offer in trade (I could clean your shop), or I would be willing to trade some German wooden hand planes. I have several jointers, jacks, and smoothers as well as some other asian wooden hand planes.

I’d be grateful for any help or advice on where to go!

-Ole

OLe, wish i was closer. You could use mine for free. But, even tho I’m in Texas, it’s about 5 hrs to my place. Someone here in this great state should help out.

Sadly, I am too far from you, I too would loan you free time on my jointer. Thought not 5 hours from you, 3+ is a bit far just to do some jointing…

Any fellow Texans here closer to Austin wanna help a fellow Lumberjock out?

Ole, I know there are LJ’s closer than me but if they don’t offer to help, I’m about 100 miles from Austin and you’re welcome to use my jointer, if you don’t mind the drive.

Ole, I’m about 100 miles from you also, but unfortunately, I don’t own a jointer yet. If I did, you would be welcome to use it!

How long are the parts you need to joint? I have a bench top Jointer so length is limited.

Hi Russ, they are 74” long and about 4.5”x8” at this point. Pretty hefty, so I think a bench top jointer would be difficult to use. Thanks for the offer though, I appreciate it!

Dallas, thanks for offering!

FWIW, mine’s a bench top, but I have found using support stands works really well for longer pieces. I regularly face / edge joint 8’ stock…
