  1. As the owner and user of a no.7, I can say its nice to have a long plane at times. It wouldn’t be my first plane, but there is no need to apologize for having one.
  2. How will it be supported? If it is going into a dado and the bow isn’t to bad, it may be pushed into position, if it’s just on brackets, how much weight will it bear? If books, the weight of the books may flatten it. It neither works, it may be time for a new piece.
  3. Yes, it happened to me on my old Craftsman jointer. In my case it was just after changing the blades—I didn’t tighten enough. After patching the hole in the drywall caused by the piece That flew off the jointer, I retightened everything after going through the whole adjustment process. Never had a problem after that. I think this is a good time to use the torque wrench. And maybe the blue lock-tight.
  4. Based on your design, I’d suggest looking at some book shelf plans or videos. The spacing size may be different, but construction would be similar.
  5. My first jointer was one like this, though the base was a little different. With sharp blades it will work well. Getting the tables aligned can be a pain, but once set they stay put.
  6. Mitered. Proud joints will make dusting harder.
  7. Tools from that era were well built and should be used, not kept as art objects. It hurts their feelings and brings bad karma
  8. The Latina Revo 12/16 is about $850.
  9. Colonial hardwoods in Springfield May be able to help you out.
  10. Also, it takes courage to step up to a piece that big. Her turning is impressive, and that is a fun video to watch.
  11. Chestnut has the right idea. Use a straight grained board, for a really tight fit for the drawer, start with a board a little longer as well as taller. Oh, and make sure you mark the board before you cut so you can put it back together again.
  12. Some cuts require the removal of the guard, thin rips, for example. The Gripper is great for these cuts.
  13. Is it sharp? If it is, then it’s just cosmetic and not worth worrying about.
