Feeding the Workplace Hold the board firmly down on both tables and against the f _ nce . Keep fingers c _ osetogelher . Feed the board at a continuous even rate of speed until the cut is made along the entire length of the board . Any hesitation or stopping could cause a " step " to be cut on the edge of the board which would cause the board to ride up onthe out - feed table resulting in a " crooked " edge on the hoard As the trailing hand passes ever the cutterhead , remove the leading hand , Continue feeding while placing the leading hand behind the trailing hand , Continue feeding in this manner " hand over hand " ' , until the entire length of the board is cut . As soon as enough of the workplace has been cut to do so , put pressure over the cutterhead and ouffeed table . Do not feed too fast . A slow steady rate of feed pro - duces a smooth accurate cut , Feeding too fast causes a " rippled " cut , makes it difficult to guide the workpiece accurately , and coutd be dangerous . NOTE : Wood chips may accumulate inside the iointeri planer . Periodically clean out the chips from the interiorof the jo inter / planer . NOTE : Before cleaning wood chips . • Turn switch " OFF " . ° Wait for all moving parts to stop . • Unplug the jointer / p { aner . i = 1 , pl ! = , L ill i Feed with the grain whenever possible . If the nature ol the workplace is such that it must be fed against the grain , take very light cuts and feed slowly . With the Grain Rotation Planing Planing is removing wood from the widest surface or face of a board so as to make it flat and smooth . Planing on a jointer will not necessarily make the face that is planed square or p & ratlel to any other surface . Planing on a jointer only smooths and flattens If you are planing and jointing a board , the planing operation should be performed first . This allows the jointed edge to be cut square to the face which was previously planed flat and smooth , 25

Basic Jointer / Planer Cutting Operations ( continued ) . . . . . . . . . . , , . , , , = = Jointing _ : : , Joiniing is the removal of wood along the edge'of a piece Of wood so as to make that edge straight , smooth and squal _ e to the wood face which is against the fence . To ensure a square cut , the workpiece face must be held flat against the fence throughout the entire cut . , ' l'lMr JJ I , II , , , HI1 , _ L Beveling / Chamfering Adjustthe fence to the desired angle . Lockfence in posi - tion using fence tilt knob and fence sliding knob . For pieces of wood 3 inches or wider hold the board firmly down on both tables and firmly against the fence ( as illustrated ) with your hands on the side and top of the workpiece . Keep fingers close together , NOTE : Removing only the comer on the edge of a board is known as chamfering while beveling is removing the cor - ner orthe edge of the board down to the board's surface . Normally a chamfer is made with one cut and only the corner of the wood is cut off . Therefore , a cut deeper that 1 / t6 of an inch may be made . For pieces of wood less than 3 inches wide use hold - down / push - blocks ( as illustrated ) on the side of the work - piece so you can hold the workpiece in toward the fence at all times as well as down against the table top . WARNING : Do not contact the cutting knives or i : lithe guard With the push - blocks . I ! , : Chamfe Bevel Rabbeting Rabbeting is very similar to jointing except that only part Rabbet of the edge is jointed . Do not remove the guard for rab - beting . To rabbet hold the workpiece firmly against the End fence . Do not make cuts greater than 1 / 8 " . To make a • deeper rabbet , make cuts in 1 / 8 " deep increments . Because the workpiece is supported by the outfeed table ge during a rabbet cut , the infeed table must be lowered after each pass . Stop Pin Operation A step pin is supplied to prevent against planing or joint - ing more than 1 / 8 " depth o ! cut . Planing and jointing operations greater than 1 / 8 ' per pass are not , recom - : mended . Rabbeting operations greater than 1 / 8 can be performed by putiing the stop pin out and lowering the : infeed tabte in : l / 8 increments . The pin automatically i resets Sen . you return to the 0 " to 1 / 8 " depth of cut rangel N _ ver Cut a full 1 / 2 " rabbet in one cut .

Support Long Workpieces To avoid injury from slips or kickbacks , use extra sup - ports ( tables , saw horses , etc . ) at both infeed and out - feed ends if your workpiece if hard to hold down to the table . , , , , , , , , , , , , , Using the Hold - Down / Push - Blocks Always use the hold _ down / push - blocks when jointing or rabbeting wood that is narrower than 3 inches or planing wood that is thinner than 3 inches ( as illustrated ) . Grasp the hold - down / push - blocks firmly with the fingers close together and wrapped around the handle . Position the hold - down / push - blocks tlat , on top of workpiece and push the workpiece down against the table . This helps to provide a qualify cut and minimize the chance of a kick - back . Hold - down pressure must also be sufficient to prevent held - down / push - block sliding or slipping on the top face of workpiece when advancing workpiece over cutter - head . Use a I _ and - over - hand motion of the hold - down / push - blocks , being careful to maintain control over the work - piece at all times . This means that once the workpiece has been fed past the cutterhead onto the outfeed table , one hold - down / push - block must always maintain contact of workpiece with outfeed table , WARNING : If the hold - downlpush - blocks tend to I slip while feeding , clean rubber surface immedi - I ately with sandpaper , When planing wood between 112 inch and 3 / 4 of an inch thick and narrower than the hold - down / push - block , tilt the hold - down / push - block so that it clears the tip of the cutter guard while feeding . Never ptane wood that is thinner than 1 / 2 inch . It is apt to split or shatter and thus has a greater tendency to kick - back . 27
