February CMWA Meeting

Gary Mrozek will demonstrate how to set up and use a jointer to achieve those perfectly straight boards. He’s also going to demonstrate changing blades, which can be a real challenge with a straight knife jointer. Glenn Street and Rollie Johnson will talk about insert cutterheads for jointers and planers. They will compare spiral and helical and explain how they cut and show some examples of how the helical shearing cut results in minimal tear-out even in typically hard to plane wood such as curly or figured maple.
