eally cool! Great videography skills, man!
I've done some lathe work but haven't tried a pen yet - would love to learn more about how you mount it on the lathe and other tools needed. (more of a generic comment, not expecting you to instruct me!)
How do the blades brush the edge of a narrow board sitting on the outfeed table, and hanging over the knives? Swing the cutterhead back and forth to see if they brush the board, or if they never touch it. When I'm setting knives, I do the swinging with the wrench on one of the middle bolt heads.
What did the board look like when you first sighted down it before you ran it across the jointer? A seven foot board can be straightened on a 4' bed (total length) jointer with no problem, unless it's some dense wood 16/4 x 12.
I'd get rid of the rollers first of all.
I will make a video of this plane. I have one planned for the others as well. This one will be first, and the HP-6 will be next.
In short, the blade has two angles built into the blade. I'll make the video tonight.
