    Hi George, I would like to know the advantages and disadvantages of a jointer with (a) spiral head over blades: (b) parallelogram jointer over dovetail. Thanks.

    I'm making some table legs that will be close to 1.5 inches both wide and thick. I'm making them fro flat-sawn 3/4 in wood, so I need to rip four pieces for each leg, so that each piece will have a triangular cross-section. I'm trying to figure out the best/safesr way to cut them on the table saw. How would you recommend doing the beveled rips?

    How is the router table set up to do edge jointing a board. I have an Ingra Router Table

    Hello - I just joined wwgoa, very impressive. Also from WI, Monroe, and my local sawmill has a great selection - but I am considering starting to mill/dry my own logs. Have you ever dabbled in that?

    How good is purpleheart for turning for pens?

    My measuring tape on the right side of the blade on my Ridgid table saw is accurate when using over 18" settings, but it is off progressively more as the width from the blade is smaller. The adjustable marker can't be the issue, as it is accurate at wider settings. Any ideas?!

    to Ginny, ( no need for live review) Years ago I built an Ice Boat (do a you-tube search) my wife came out to the garage and asked if it was gonna work, my reply was " well it Aughtago" (Aught to go ) hence the name of my ice boat and my user name, you can call me Stan.

    I'm new to using a jointer, my edges are coming out slightly concave, like a frown, what am I doing wrong?

  9. Harry

    Thanks for your tips. This has likely been answered before but don't catch all the shows. If one had a choice between a planer and a joiner, what would you recommend. Also the Dewalt vs the Ricon. I see the Ricon, for minimally more has higher rpm and helical blades. Thanks

    Hi George, am calling from Canada. Can you tell whether ash is too hard a wood for turning? Would you recommend it? Thanks.
