    The fence to blade alignment is probably way out...and getting it true on a job-site type saw can be a challenge, unfortunately. This can also setup a dangerous kickback situation.

    Dennis, I'm glad you are back to getting shop time! You may be forced to send your blades out, unfortunately. So many "local" shops no longer exist.

    The thicknessing process doesn't change when you add a DRO to your planer. It just (hopefully) makes the final result more accurate. :) I'm honestly considering adding one back onto my J/P planer...

    If I finish at all, it's either BLO or shellac or maybe the water borne top coat I typically use if I just happen to also be spraying in the same time frame. Most jigs are just plain naked.
