    Thanks Dave. It's really difficult to maintain quality with second rate or smaller machines which is why I have invested in what I consider some of the better types. Besides, it makes the job easier and quicker.

    No ignorance here. Just two good questions.

    The purpose of a jointer is to cut flat faces or edges in boards to make them suitable for glueing. Without a straight and clean edge, the glue joint would be gapped and weak. Without the flat face, a planer will not do its job well and will follow a curve. In most wood shops, a good jointer is indespensible along with a good table saw and a good planer.

    Cosmoline is a grease commonly seen on imported machinery with cast iron or bare steel surfaces and seen a lot in some firearms. The cosmoline inhibits rust and keeps the machined surfaces looking like new when cleaned off. Cosmoline is a nasty, sticky grease that is best described as yucky. After scraping it off I follow that with a rag doused in muneral spirits to finish cleaning it off. No matter how careful I am to get everything I can find, more keeps popping up during use and for the first six months it will keep reappearing in the least likely places.

    But seriously, 12x84"!?!, how big a knife handle are you gonna make?
    Or does this mean Martell sayas and boxes!?!
    LOL yep! certainly make more sense for THIS Dave to have that... I guess that's what happens when you post from your phone and dont look carefully at icons or forums...

    Justin050 - I don't mind being confused with the other Dave. In fact I would take it as a compliment. But we do different things and our machinery will be different.
