    hes doing a video on how to use a jointer but hes jointing the board with the cup up instead of down

    Feckin love this guy

  3. Piperalpha81 on May 23, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    This is not a good representation of how to use the Jointer. WTF is going on with the guard? It’s not going back in place. Is the spring disconnected or stressed? Other people wrote a bunch of comments on how to properly use the jointer.

  4. gaygaybrad on May 23, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    This is just a commercial for safety pads and not about how to use a jointer. Such a waste if time.

  5. Dayna Blackwell on May 23, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    What kind of jointer is this?

  6. Alfio on May 23, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Tommy…the spring of guard red panel is death.

  7. Ace on May 23, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    What do I do in a case where I start face or edge joint a board and it starts to form a ramp or a wedge on one end and the other end doesn’t want to joint properly? I’ve sort of remedied the problem by turning the board around end for end but I feel like I’m doing something wrong to begin with. Far as I know my technique is correct.

    I looked up this video after I found out that i have a sprunger jointer in my barn and didn’t know how to use it. Thanks for the help!

    If you put heavy pressure on the board you’re just going to follow the curvature of the board. You’ll get smooth sides but it won’t be flat.

  13. Mark Johnson on May 23, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    When do you use it as a jointer.

  14. Rafon on May 23, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    This is a MicroJig ad. I mean it’s MicroJig’s channel. Here’s how to use a jointer: https://youtu.be/q6Fcpz4du20

    Sure do wish your camera person could stand still while you were running the boards through…It would’ve been nice to be able to see what your were talking about.

  17. Michael Schuler on May 23, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    One part he got right: apply pressure to the outfeed table only, once the board has advanced to it. Many misunderstand this. But as others have commented, most essentials of technique were omitted. The first task is to sight the board to understand its shape, orienting it with concave side down and to be cut with the grain. Also, based on this visual survey, it may be necessary to refrain from putting excess downward pressure on the board during the initial passes if they are not deep enough to flatten the concave side completely. Unlike the automatic parallel result achieved later by a thickness planer, achieving a flat surface with a jointer is not automatic without attention to the work piece and proper technique.

    If you cared about it you’d fix your blade guard

  19. Fd 72 on May 23, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    This is not the way to use a jointer. The video conveys the false idea that using a jointer is difficult or dangerous. As with all power tools, it is only difficult and dangerous when used improperly and/or carelessly, which the person in this video does from beginning to end. Just a few observations: the guard needs to be spring-loaded or it’s very unsafe, only modest pressure must be applied to the workpiece, especially prior to reaching the blade, or it will deform while cutting, which defeats the purpose of jointing, and ordinary push-blocks are just fine…

  20. Jacob Miller on May 23, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Guy says safety first and puts his blocks over the blade cover and grabs them while the blade is running. And his peice of wood is sitting an inch away from the turning blade unsupported while he stands behind it. That’s the best way to have a board thrown at your crotch like it’s coming from a pitching machine… this guy should stick to acting and whoever produced this garbage should be held liable for the people losing fingers and nuts, from following his footsteps.

    Ay Tommy weah dya pok da cah? I tot we wah gonna git some cawfee….BTW buy micro jig as seen on TV, act now & you’ll receive your micro jig not %20 off, not even %10 but reg price that’s right regular price plus shipping & tax tag and title
    Youz uh gunna luv da ting

  22. Sawdusty on May 23, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    That blade guard is designed to be spring loaded so that it covers the blade after the board passes through. Safety is disregarded in this video.

    Great carpentry info but your accent makes my feel like you are about to tell me child to get back to his shift at the factory.

  29. Ben Fix on May 23, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    What in the absolutely not?

    Nothing scares me like a jointer, guard spring disengaged. 🤣😂😅

  30. Screaming Eagle on May 23, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    why does the fence need to be adjusted for a narrower board?

  31. Clark Blumenstein on May 23, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Lots of good info in here about PPE and geez what a beautiful shop. But he was probably trying to keep the video short and forgot to reattach the red guard return spring(!)

  32. inspectrgajit on May 23, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    OMG, leaves out the importance of what grain direction to run through. Don’t do it like this guy.

    hi..i made a safety guide after watching your video. Thank you for inspiring me. ^^

  36. Adam Brubaker on May 23, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Curious, are you a furnisher builder? cabinets maybe? I’m asking because I think your shop is beautiful and I’m wondering what you produce out of it

  37. Jeffrey Lonigro on May 23, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Wax will mess up your finish. Can you say fisheyes? His technique is wrong. Good thing he’s cute or nobody would watch it.

  38. Gold 1792 on May 23, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    What brand of jointer is that?

  39. The Gauvinator on May 23, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Love the comments of how wrong he is, bet your not half as talented as he is.

  40. woodensurfer on May 23, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I think this is a safety video without much on technique.

    The jointer is rather difficult to understand and use.

    The method for concave vs convex etc are different.

    What if the depth of cut is less than the curvature if you are jointing a concave board? You will never get a flat board because the infeed table will elevate the board toward the end when the depth of cut is insufficient.

    Look at and check the board before jointing.

  41. Screaming Eagle on May 23, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    why doesnt your guard go back over the cutter like its supposed to? looks very dangerous.

  48. SOAHCSOAHCSOAHC on May 23, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Do you really need to be putting that much pressure down on the workpiece? It seems like you’d just be bending the piece and taking off material where you shouldn’t be.

  49. Timothy Kaczynski on May 23, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    That blade is gnarly right!?
    *carelessly places hand on machine above blade without looking*
