You’re doing great. With all the springs in it’s pretty hard to keep the blade down and in the correct location. Be sure all of your gib screws and seating area is clean because when you start tightening them everything moves very easily. Start from the center and work out. I’m sure you already know these things are SHARP, so be careful!

Well I planned a board tonight. I went and got the set screws and a few other screws. I decided to put my new blades in. I cleaned up the gibs and the area it all goes. I ended up with a light cut when I slipped once. I didn’t see the cut at first. but now that I am done I see it bled just enough to show where it was.

For tightening and setting the blades the jig from grizzly did pretty good. I planned a piece of cedar I found. I didn’t joint it first and I think the table rollers were to high. I got a lead in and lead out bevel (not sure what it is called.) But the center of the board seemed good. Granted it was a pretty soft board.

I’ll adjust those rollers down tomorrow.
