Jointers And Planers: How To Choose, Use And Maintain Them

It happens all the time: woodworkers proudly survey their handiwork only to discover gaps in the glue joints and between parts—the planks just don’t lie flat and square. The solution? Jointers, planers, and this comprehensive guide. The latest in the Popular Mechanics Workshop series, it delves into every aspect of each tool—the basic anatomy, features, motor sizes, dust ports, maximum cut, and more. Check out bench top, stationary, and portable models of each; accessories, such as push sticks and knife-sharpening jigs; and all the must-know techniques, including face and edge jointing and staggered cut planing. There are advanced procedures, too—from rabetting and tapering a post to ganged cuts and molding—as well as fixtures to make, maintenance and repair advice, and exciting projects.

this is a great book. it has all you need to know about jointers and planers. shows you how to decide which machine is right for you, how to use them and maintain them. it even shows you how to do various things like make raised panels with the jointer. very useful book if you are new to the woodworking field. just might teach you a few things even if you are not a newby. though not absolutly necessary but nice, this book has tons of high quality color photos which makes reading it that much more pleasent.

I bought this book because I plan to buy a jointer/planer. I am not a professional but, in spite of my somewhat low level, the book did not give me much useful information. It is mostly a collection of trivialities, such as instructions for making a stand in mdf board, or 1 1/2 pages with ridiculous instructions on how to remove a motor (disconnect wires, remove bolts, remove belt, remove pulley if necessary...). There is no useful info on combined jointers/planers. Flowcharts on choice of jointers/planers seem useless. I do not recommend this book to anyone. The chapter on jointers and planers in Duginske's book "Mastering Woodworking Machines" gives much more information in much less space.

Got this book for my husband and son as they've started a little woodworking hobby they hope to turn into a business down the road. The book has enough info for them to familiarize themselves with their new tools and get started with the cutting boards. I've seen them poring over it on several occasions so it has enough information to keep them going.

Great book. When I got this book a few years ago. I was a beginner to some wood working tool. The planer was one of them.The book help me with many difference ways to use the planer and how to maintain the tool.The jointer I have used before but now with easy alignment of the hole and the planer.All me wood working project come out like a pro.The best part about the book it was very easy to read and understand.
