    So I just finished my first project. Media console Baltic birch plywood case and walnut top. Made lots of mistakes, least of which was dropping the cabinet when I was getting into the house. This thing is pretty massive/heavy, pictures don’t do it justice. It is 7ft longx22inchs deep. But good news is it held together except for one of the doors cracked along the rails/stile. I tried to fix with some super glue for now until it fully cracks and I will make a new door. I just wanted to thank everyone here for the posts and I have learned a lot and look forward to learning and doing more.

    I just ordered a new set of blades off Woodworker tool works and they say the blades are 1 1/2” and mine are 1 1/4” only. I am guessing the new knives will engage with the shorter jack screws we will see. I am still going to use the other knives and just have this extra set on hand.

    There are 2 per knife, total 6. Only 2 of the 6 screws are long. When I received the jointer the 2 long screws were on the same blade which made setting the height of that blade pretty easy.

    I took the knives to be sharpened this morning and was able to take a look at the jack screws. It seems like only 2 of 6 are long enough to engage with the blades to help set the height. I attached a picture. Any idea how to get replacements or how to fix it? It sure would help with setting the heights

    The previous owner was a builder and used this detached garage as his storage for all his business stuff.

    Do you know of any reputable mail in sharpening services? I don’t know of any in my area.

    Not sure if my problems are Setup or technique. I think my problem is that my knives are dull but not sure. I used the OneWay dial jig to set my knives to be maybe 2 thousandths above the outfeed table. When I go to face joint a board, done both walnut and poplar. I get a lot of bouncing and some “wavy” cuts. Edge jointing I have no problems.I am looking to source some new knives that I can have around while I try and figure out sharpening my current knives. The knives are 12”x 1 1/4”x3/16”. I can’t seem to find any online in all of those dimensions. Also setting the knives was a pain because only one of the knives seemed to have the proper screws in the bottom( that help set the height after I loosen the “gib screws” if I am saying that correctly. I have attached a couple pictures to show what good and offending screws. Can I get replacements? I didn’t want to take the blades all the way out until I asked you all some of these questions. Thank you in advance.

    I got the jointers circuit hooked up so I could get it running. It hums like a champ and after a couple adjustments i got it cutting square and flat. Now it is onto making the Jay Bates workbench. P.S. also built my assembly/out feed table. Still trying to decide if I should drill some dog holes in it kinda like a Paulk bench

    Thanks for the words. I agree that I fight against Tool Acquisition Disorder but I have everything I need to get started.

    Haha. It was a nice little trick I saw over on OWWM.org and for $3 I can keep those bulbs around for long straight edges if needed.

    Darn autocorrect yeah I used 2 6ft light bulbs on each side to level the beds. I used my 5 ft straight edge on the bulbs and they were straight near as I could tell. Used feeler gauges and dial meter to level off the cutter head

    The seller loaded it on my trailer with a skid loader and my cousin brought a forklift to remove it from the trailer at my shop. I have a 12’ garage door on the shop I just took the jump. It ran well when I picked it up. I can't wait to get the electrical run so I can start making chips.
