I have a TP but had to have all the knives removed and sharpened. I went to insert the knives and had no idea how high above the spindle that it sits in it should be. The proper tool was never given to me. So I ordered it. The proper tool has metal to metal contact. Which is not good and the user Utube mentioned to be very careful not to chip the new knife. She showed the springs have to be controlled thru their entire travel. I am wondering if I put a piece of tape on the tool would the tape thickness change the height by too much? But the tape would cushion the metal. Also the cylinder has both jack screws and springs?? I am thinking of using the tool then turning up the jack screws until they get the new blade to just barely touches the tool. Should I even use the jack screws or just the springs and tool. My question is would the tape (packing or Scotch) really make a big difference in performance? My jointer is very easy to set up with the Jack screws and a long accurate straight edge. But the TP that is know of has no out table or in table just a flat table. And adjusting the knifes up side down is very risky and not accurate.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
