I am starting a project to build a horizontal mortising fixture/jig. While gluing up a stack of three 3/4in MDF panels (2 at a time), I found it near impossible to get a perfectly aligned glue-up. I adjusted for that possibility by over-sizing the pieces, but now wonder about the “Best” way to square and re-size these MDF stacks. FYI, I used TiteBond III glue.
My question centers on the possibility of gunking-up any of the following cutters when squaring and sizing these MDF stacks:
TS w/50T Freud Combination Blade
Jointer w/helical cutter
BS w/half inch 4TPI
Not really expecting problems here, but I do remember when I once cut up some PVC on the BS and had a grand old time peeling the melted PVC from the blade. ;-)
