WOODWORKING TRICK: Simple Way to Replace Jointer Blades So They Cut Great

Every good woodworker needs to be something of a mechanic. That’s because all woodworking machines need tender loving care from time to time. The jointer needs this more than most. Click below to watch a video I made a few years ago. It shows how I install and adjust fresh blades in my jointer, and how this ensures super-smooth cutting results without the need for special installation tools. Precision is key, but you can get all the precision you need with nothing more than a piece of scrap wood, as you’ll see. Simple, elegant and effective.
