I had an idea and I thought I’d run it by you folks.
The infeed and outfeed tables on my jointer are nice and flat. But the machined top isn’t quite as smooth as I would like.
I was thinking of polishing up the tables with high grit sandpaper. Probably start at 600 and work my way to 2,500. Using mineral spirits as a lubricant with a sanding block.
I don’t want to actually remove much material because as I said the tables seem flat. But I thought that if I polished it then wood might slide a little better on the tables. And it might look nicer.
My main concern would be making the tables unflat.
Anyone else tried this or is it a fool’s errand?
