I am in between projects right now so I thought it would be a good time to do some regular maintenance on my Rigid tools. I have cleaned the jointer and planer blades. I have also sent the jointer blades off to get sharpened. The guy do the sharpening has told me it is quite an ordeal to reinstalling these blades for perfect alignment. The manual does not mention this as a big concern. Is it a big deal? Does anyone have a technique that works? Is the planer a problem as well? I just reversed the blades and tightened the gib bolts down -seemed simple! Oh ya, what is a good cleaner to get gum and pitch removed from the tools? Any input is much appreciated. David
