Welcome to lumberjocks. Good luck getting the business going. Just starting mine as well. Killer score on the barn. What part of the country are you in?

Hi Phillip,
Apologies for the late reply, I had no idea comments could be posted here. I’m in Haywood County, TN, which is an hour North East of Memphis. The barn is really great, I just need to get a chance to get in there again! Haven’t had an opportunity to build anything from it since getting the tools I bought to process it in the first place.

mcg, you are working on one of the most sensitive pieces of machinery that a wood worker uses.

Stop and spend some time researching the involved steps required to have the machine purring.
And expect to spend an afternoon tuning it up, the effort will be well worth the time in the long run.

Initial checks can be done with a 1m long steel rule, or what ever the imperial equavlent is.
You need to be conversive with the terminology co planner and what it means as the machine requires these checks to be done before touching anything. In particular the outfeed table never moves unless cutters are changed, then the calibration process starts all over again.
Step 1 Determine the datum settings and then work from there.
Step 2 If its all too hard seek the help from a fellow woodworker, but make sure you can understand the terminlogy and assist.
Step 3 If need be watch as many “tune Up” utube videos as possible, there are heaps out there, that way you will fully understand what is required, what does what. and also spot the incorrect practices shown sometimes.

-- Regards Rob
