In another thread I mentioned my planer blades got badly damaged from rough wood. I don't remember my most recent use of the planer but I do have a pretty good supply of both maple and walnut slabs I have to plane down for projects. Both of these were originally stored outdoors. I'm suspecting they got dirt and grit on them and that may be what damaged my blades. Which brings up the problem. How should wood like this be handled to prevent planer damage? After all a planers job is to smoothen rough wood. Yes, yes, I know, don't store outdoors in the first place. This wood was given to me, free. Up to now.
Wat to do???
