  • jo0610 blade orientation

    I just bought a used jointer. I hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question, but I am unsure of the way the 3 blades should be faced in the cutterhead. I ask this question, because the manual does not show it, and who knows what the previous owner did. The cutterhead rotates towards the infeed table. Should the flat side of the blade cut into the wood first, or the beveled side?

    there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.
