I don’t have a jointer and have no idea how to get by without one at the moment. I also don’t have hand planes and the jointer hand planes seem about as expensive as a bloody jointer.
I tried setting up my router to be a jointer but after a few hours of adjustments, I couldn’t get a perfect edge. I’ve seen a few other setups using sanders and such, but it appears to take a significant amount of time to build and setup (aka, probably better off buying a jointer).
For those of you who make due without – how?
Craigslist blows. MN = craftsman only or 200 year old Delta’s with more rust than iron.
Thoughts? Or am I stuck buying piss poor quality, pre-laminated boards from Home Depot?
