WARNING:
NEVER
PLACE THE HEEL
OF YOUR HAND
AT
_
THE END OF THE WORK
PIECE WHEN
FINISHING
A CUT.
THIS COULD
RESULT IN YOUR HAND COMING
IN CONTACT
WITH THE CUTTER
CAUSING
SERIOUS
INJURY,
At the end of the cut, position
your hand on TOP NEAR THE END
of the work
piece and continue
feeding
the work piece until
the
cutter
guard has returned
to its closed
position,
RIGHT
/
USING
HOLD
DOWN/PUSH
BLOCKS
ALWAYS
use the hold downlpush
blocks
when
JOINTING
wood
that is NARROWER
than 3 in. or PLANING
wood
that is THINNER
than 3 in.
Grasp the hold down/push
blocks
firmly
with
the fingers
close
to-
gether and wrapped
around
the handle.
Position
them flat on top of
workpiece,
and push the workpiece
down against
the table to pro-
vide a quality
cut and minimize
the chance
of a kickback.
Hold down pressure
must
be sufficient
to prevent
hold down/push
block
from sliding
or slipping
on the surface of the workpiece
when
advancing
work piece over cutter
head.
Use a hand-over-hand
motion
of the hold downlpush
blocks
being
careful
to maintain
control
of the workpiece
at all times.
HAND'OVER
HAND
This means
that once the work piece has passed
the cutter
head
onto
outfeed
table,
one hold down/push
block
must always
main-
tain contact
with the work piece with
outfeed
table.
When
planing
wood 3/4 in. thick
and NARROWER
than
the hold
downlpush
block,
tilt the hold down/push
block
so that
it clears
the top of the cutter
guard while
feeding.
Never plane wood that is thinner
than 112 in...because
it is apt to
split
or shatter
and thus
has a greater
tendency
to kickback.

CAUTION:
IF THE HOLD
DOWN/PUSH
BLOCKS
TEND TO
SLIP WHILE FEEDING,
CLEAN
RUBBER SURFACE
IMMEDI-
ATELY WITH SANDPAPER.
BEVELING AND CHAMFERING
The fence on your jointer-planer
is adjustable
from 45 ° inboard
to
45 ° outboard.
Adjust
the fence
to desired
angle
and tighten
lock
knobs.
BEVELING
is the cutting
of an angle on the entire
edge of a board.
Beveling
may require several
passes due to the depth of cut needed
to bevel entire
edge of board.

CHAMFERING
is removing
only the corner of the edge of a board.
Normally
a chamfer
is made with
one cut
therefore,
a cut deeper
than 1116" may be made.
