I am halfway through my first molding process using my Jet Planer and have a
few questions. My current run will produce some 2 1/4" Casing out of Red
Oak. I have the stock sized at 3/4" x 2 3/8" as suggested. My next step is
the relief cut and then move on to the actual profile cut.
1. I have ~ 4" of snipe at the end of each board from the Planing Process.
Is there any way I can fix this or will this become waste?
2. The manual mentions that it may be necessary to make several passes when
making the profile cut, is this true? I was wondering how the feed rollers
would work with less contact surface on second and subsequent passses.
3. Any tricks on the profile knife installation? I didn't have any problems
installing the relief knives but the profile knives require a lot more
