    Cutting Homosote

    I milled it just fine on a table saw. That said, job site saw and gentle breeze, with a dust mask to boot.

    Dresser

    Looks like that is veneer and you sanded the veneer off the bottom drawer.

    Smoothing plane

    V3 WR does great work for me. So does vintage Stanley. D prefers the PMV-11. Is his blog in his signature? I cannot tell on mobile.

    Smoothing plane

    Check your honing. I have enjoyed success with insanely dense interlocked Brazilian hardwood with the chipbreaker set tight. Derek up there^ works Jarrah. Metallurgy or sharp might be the step up you are looking for. Work to push is no exaggeration on high angle.

    Smoothing plane

    This is a timber and usage issue. With no interlocking grain or tear out prone wood, I don’t want to push a high angle. With a big budget, we dedicate planes. Swapping is budget friendly. I don’t see anyone swap frequently. One swap per six month project? Worth it for most. High angle in a long plane is also a usage issue. In a tear out prone case, the long sole spans across corners for leveling the adjoining case sides. Also, jointing is often on narrow boards in casework. This is a workflow issue that justifiably may have no place in your shop.

    Christmas Dining Table

    In the absence of the advice already offered, I would not have considered jointing the end grain. I’d have profiled the breadboard to match.

    Bed Headboard Glueup Question

    Is that plywood? If so, movement is not as much of a concern. If not, the centers are horizontal on those panels. Primary expansion and contraction will be vertical. This matters when saying “glue the center.”

    New Planer - Ripples

    It’s the only option if (beating the dead horse) the cutter head is truly helical. Feed rollers are the only thing left. I suppose the rocking unjointed board question was worth asking, but the even spacing rules that unlikely.

    Reminds me of extension table runners.

    WOOD BAFFLES

    Read my post again carefully. Restriction in volume and restriction in velocity are two different concepts. Increase the volume of the pipe while decreasing the velocity of the air calls for diversion (bends) but not constriction.

    WOOD BAFFLES

    Air sound is caused primarily by restriction leading to pressure release on the outflow end. Baffles open outward and deflect air to widen out the path of exit so it is under less pressure. Like mentioned above if you turn while widening, each place the air stream hits a wall slows its velocity, but only if it has some room to escape the pressure in the larger section.

    PJ882-HH Funny Noise

    First video sounded like a missing ball or roller in a bearing. I suppose losing a race would also allow the freedom of movement it sounds like. The balls/rollers slapping together in the slop has that kind of sound.

    New Planer - Ripples

    I don’t believe it is on spec, but that does not help you. It would take over 20 hours of driving one way to substantiate my doubt. I strongly suspect they are going to find a batch that were assembled wrong and won’t let the feed roller travel along the spring path. I put seven years on a Jet planer at a former job. It worked quite well. Having said all of that, I am glad they will take the machines back. I also think you will be quite happy with PM.
