« Part 2: Zyliss Vise for Woodworking: Solution for Multi-Purpose Mobile Workbench Part 3 of Tools Happen series Part 4: Masterforce Ratcheting Clamps: Disappearing from Menards' Shelves Soon? »

Come winter, I’ll be sharing my garage workshop with two cars. It’ll be here before you know it. So I have to thin out some of the tools and materials that I accumulated over the summer to make it work.

keep them both, put one in front of the other, the rear one slightly thinner cut so you feed into one, it feeds into the other and you get twice as much work done

Good Idea! I had also thought about putting them outfeed to outfeed grudge match style and have them chew on a 2×12 until one of them gave out.

Feed through both, but run one of them upside down for a jointer-planer setup.
