OK, I have done it again. I started to edge joint two boards, about 2 feet long and 6 inches wide, 1/2 inch thick.
Started with the outfeed table at an equal height as the knives (as determined by taking an 1/8 inch off a soft piece of redwood and raising the outfeed table to match). I believe my infeed and outfeed tables are coplanar (as measured with zero cut and using an expensive straightedge across both tables. Pressure on the infeed until there is sufficient wood on the outfeed and transfer the downward pressure to the outfeed.
I marked the length of the edge with chalk so I would know when the entire edge was jointed. It took many passes at 1/32 per pass.
OK, get ready to laugh.....
I now have a board that is 6 inches wide at one end and 4 1/2 inches wide at the other end!
What in heaven's name am I doing wrong?
Thanks! This just ain't right....
