    I should have held onto my previous jointer until the new one arrived.  Ah well.

    I have used the Leigh jig a few times in the past, and it's awesome.  Nice score!

    yes, cause I have three projects on the go, and everytime I need to quickly joint a board, I need to bust out a handplane, winding sticks, a straight edge, a square, and a can of spinach.
    I really do like working with handplanes, but its different when you HAVE to use them for grunt work.

    My first time viewing one of his videos - that guy is intense.  He tore that saw down to bits!
    wow - how is that possible?   That's over 50k per year!

    Sanding does take a while.  Like Terry said, start with a coarse grit and move up, being careful not to skip Any grits.
    You may also want to try running your stock on a slight angle when putting it through the power planer.  This will skew the cut and help with tear outout.  Be careful, of course.
    When all my sanding is done, I wipe my project down with water, and look at the board on a slight angle.  This helps id problem areas.  Then I circle them with a  pencil.
    Sunlight works much better than artificial lights.

    No jointer for you!
    still awaiting my powermatic.  Should have been here today, but I guess I have to wait until Monday now.  😞

    yes, this is probably true.  There is only a slight twist left, so I thought i would clamp it to the base and hope for the best.  If it bends the base, then back to the hand planes!
    The slab is thinner than it looks, will be just about 3/4 when done.
    i like go get it parallell if I have enough "meat", bit shouldn't be too much of an issue here.
