    Jointer Pork Chop UHMW Strip

    On another forum someone was having problems with the red coming off their jointer's pork chop guard. Mine is powder coated and I was not having this issue. Another gentleman responded about using UHMW tape.

    I had put UHMW tape on the foot of the fence the day I assembled my jointer. It has done a wonderful job of preventing table scratches whilst adjusting the fence. I just never thought about putting it on the pork chop. Helps with that banging back into position thing as your material passes the guard.

    Glenn,

    Where did you get that tape? I didn't know that, that stuff even existed.

    I got a roll of the PTFE tape from McMaster-Carr recently. http://www.mcmaster.com/# Plug item # 76445A711 into the search line. They have other widths, I got the 1/2". A lot more of the tape for less than I could get at Woodcraft. Jim.

    Why don't I find great way to nudge my Hartville order into free shipping land until after I placed the order?

    Thanks for the tips!

    Same thing happened to me today Mark. I ordered a few things from there THEN I see about the strips I could have tacked on...

    I need to remember these for my next order. They might just be helpful for something coming up.

    I keep an online 'Wish List' with most of my usual suppliers for small odds and ends. That way when they add up or when I am placing a larger order, I don't forget about them. The tape is often sold in the cabinet hardware sections of places like Rockler as "drawer tape".

    Sometimes you can get find thicker small sheet sized pieces that can be placed on the base of a circ saw or jig saw for significant ease of friction going over sheet goods. Good stuff

    Jim O'Dell - good call on ordering from McMaster-Carr.
