Izzy's Fence Mounted Cove Jig - 2 replies

Makita 2030N restore - 33 replies

A few months back I picked up a Makita 2030N combination planer/jointer and I’m finally getting around to refurbishing it. The machine is in good condition overall but being 30 plus years old has some issues that I need to correct. The first thing I found was that the knives were as dull as marbles and the previous owner had them set way t...
