    I have the Incra Master Lift 2. It's a rebranded Jessem Mast-R-Lift 2.

    From your criteria I think you want this lift (Jessem or Incra). If you don't ever plan on getting a bigger router then...

    Yes, a hard arkansas used for polishing will need to be very smooth. The surface should feel like glass, as Warren described.

    Sounds like your stone has a rougher surface finish than is ideal. ...

    Yeah, my split top Roubo is made from Doug Fir and the top is about 3-1/4" thick, 6.5' long. I estimated the weight at around 250 lbs or so, sans vises. But it is very solid for everything I've...

    Yes, absolutely rip cut before you plane. It's easier to plane smaller pieces flat to begin with, and they are bound to move after you rip them.



    Does the shop have a bandsaw? I'd rather...

    I have the G0857 (same as G0858 but with straight knives instead of spiral). It is not that much lighter than the G0490- I think Grizzly has some incorrect info out there in some places and I wonder...

    When we are talking about glueing mortise and tenon joints, the clamps are usually just to ensure that the shoulder is well seated. The actual glue joint is between the tenon cheeks and mortise...

    I bought this. It does basically work, but the quality is truly laughable. Also the broadest tip is only like 1/4", which is big enough but 3/8" would be nicer. I would just get one decent quality...

    I think you could do the scraping with a straight edge as your main reference. You won't be able to get ten-thousandth accuracy without a large plate, but one thousandth might be doable. A smaller...

    Looks great, Derek. Those boards are gorgeous. You do exceptional dovetails.

    I've done the mitered ends on dovetails a few times and I always found that getting that miter in exactly the right...

    I've always suspected this was overblown. Also they will tell you to make sure the blade is installed and the lever cap tightened- for this to matter it would have to bend the frog casting and then...

    I don't think the infeed table can realistically get close enough to have the kind of effect a tight mouth on a handplane does. The gibs could possibly have a a chipbreaker effect if shaped...
  12. For checking a prospective used jointer I would...

    For checking a prospective used jointer I would just be checking that each table is flat and not twisted and to see if there are gross errors in table alignment. So a good ~36" straightedge and some...
  13. The frog face doesn't need to be flat...

    The frog face doesn't need to be flat necessarily. The important thing is that when the blade is installed and the lever cap engaged there is contact at the heel of the blade bevel across the full...

    I have the 14BX. I am happy with it. However I think the ceramic blade guides on it are not the best for tight scroll work. You'd probably want to get a carter stabilizer or something like that if...

    Fixing minor tearout might be best done with a bit more planing. Are you sure you were planing with the grain? Assuming the table is made up of several boards, each board might have a different...

    Cuts per inch helps, but the surface is still going to show scallops when you put a finish on it. So for any show surface you're going to have to sand or plane it to finish.

    Not sure about the...

    Glad it's working better. The learning curve is kind of steep at first. I remember my early ventures with a plane, and one of the biggest revelations was just how little blade projection you...

    I take a decently flat board and feed it several inches past the cutter, keeping pressure on the infeed. Turn off machine, raise outfeed table until there is no gap with the jointed portion of the...

    Visit owwm.org and vintagemachinery.org for information on those. On the OWWM forum you can find a bunch of restoration threads on those machines.

    I'd say that's a nice score.

    About the back bevel- get rid of it. It's just going to add to the force required. Hopefully you kept it very small, so you just need to work the bevel side on your stones until its gone.

    I think you'll like the wagon vise. I have the $$$ benchrafted one, but never regretted it. I doubt I go a single shop session without using it for something. I'd hate to always be screwing around...

    Face planing can be pretty tough, especially at first. A lot tougher than planing a 3/4" edge like most demonstrations show. It's real work!

    The issue is the shaving width. A full width shaving...

    You need a bearing puller or a three jaw gear puller to remove the bearing, and either an arbor press or differential heat (freeze rotor, heat bearing inner race) to install new ones.

    Taking full width shavings off a wide face with a try plane and a fresh iron, even a 0.002 shaving takes a lot of force. For this kind of work I'm usually trying to work at maybe 80% of the max I...

    It was never a design consideration, but I sometimes find myself doing this without thinking during really heavy hand planing. I think it can allow you to get a little more force on the plane.
