    Start by getting the outfeed table parallel to the cutterhead and more or less parallel to the infeed table (lengthwise) when the infeed support bolts are near the center of their adjustment range....

    Shims should go under the hinge in your first set of photos. The other side, in the second photo set, should be adjusted with the bolts. I am not seeing a hold-down latch on that side- is there one?

    The problem is likely uneven pressure, insufficient glue spread or a contaminated substrate. If you plan on doing much veneer in the future a vacuum press is a good investment and will give...

    Alan, what is the inside radius? That is a nice detail but hard to execute cleanly.

    Aaron, I thought the closet was for noise control. My apologies. The size of vent to the outside is somewhat arbitrary. The velocity of the exhaust stream will be the exhaust cfm divided by the vent...

    I'm with you, Johnny. I have a Crescent 36 like the one pictured, and the guide position relative to the wheel makes it impossible to locate different width blades at the same point on the wheel. If...

    A well tuned shoulder plane should give a clean shoulder to the tenon. If the joint is tight on one face and gapped on the other, plane the shoulder on the tight side. Make sure the corners between...
