How does that relate? You joint a face and an edge, then rip the parallel edge.
I see no lack of need for the jointer.

is pulling up." Booker T. Washington
Huh... If you are infering that if a TS can produce an edge as clean as a
jointer, the jointer is going to waste time, you are wrong. The jointer IS
NOT supposed to be used to clean up TS cuts. A jointers primary purpose is
to Straighten and Flatten Stock. If you are going from the TS to the
jointer you are doing every thing backwards.
I've seen Norm cut stock on the tablesaw then clean up the edge on the
jointer. He clearly states he is leaving the cut heavy so he can do that.
Think maybe he just can't afford a good blade? ;)
FWIW, every glue up I've done is with the edge from the saw. I seen no
reason to change that.
Yeah I have seen that too. I wonder if he simply does not know any better
or if he is demonstrating another way to get a smooth edge if your TS is
not making good cuts. I was taught to never take the board from the saw to
the jointer and that was from 2 different instructors. For acurate cutting,
cutting proud and finishing with a jointer just does not make sense.
Not a shill for Forrest but...
I used to use a blade on the TS that a trip to the jointer would improve
upon. Bought the WWII and wouldn't think of going to the jointer most
of the time because the cut is so smooth. I'm sure other premium blades
will do the same. You get what you pay for. The middle of the road
blade didn't equal the jointer. The premium blade betters the jointer.
C'mon now - don't be throwing rocks at my
I read someplace that it was as good as the Forrest 'Dorker II.
Hell, if the 'Dorker II is so damned good, how come they ain't working
on a 'Dorker III model?
I rest my case!
