  1. Please don’t hate me. I use my Dj 20 for the most part. I use a Stanley No 7 for that joint that I want to disappear when it’s glued up.

    Combo kid here, Sometimes.

  2. I use the table saw first then if I’m worried about it, I use my small tabletop 6″ jointer. My knuckles get sore enough without dragging them. lol


  3. I prefer to use a jointer if the boards edge is not straight then onto the TS as its fast,just make sure the blade is true 90 deg.


  4. I recently found a Bailey No. 8 at a flea market for $20! That pup is 24″ long and weighs 10 pounds, but you can sure get a true straight edge in no time.
