OPERATION
For your safety do not exceed a 1t16" deep cut on a planing
operation for work pieces wider than 1..1/2" For work pieces less
than 1-1t2", a 118" cut can be taken at a stow feed rate
For your own safety, ALWAYS use hold downtpush blocks when
JOINTING
wood that is NARROWER
than 3 in.. or when
PLANING wood that is THINNER than 3 in.
This Jo}nter-PJaner
is designed with a special cutter head and
internat baffle that blows the sawdust and chips from the rear of
the machine
To keep this system operating
properly, the motor
speed should be maintained.
A feed rate that is too fast will slow
the motor down resulting
in a poor cut and poor chfp discharge.
The type of wood, wood grain, and moisture content of the wood
all affect an acceptable
feed rate
Do not plane, joint or bevet wood shorter than 12 in Matertai this
short is more difficult
to control while being cuL Small pieces of
wood can tip over on the tables or into the cutterhead
and can be
kicked back toward you
For best resutts, take light cuts For average planing, jointtng, or
beveling, a cut between 1132 and 1t16 in. deep wil! produce the
best resutts

CAUTION: MAKE SURE THE SWITCH iS IN THE OFF POSITION AND THE CORD UNPLUGGED BEFORE SETTING THE
GUARD STOP.
The guard stop assembly allows you to limit the cutter guard opening during operation and can be adjusted to prevent the cutter guard
from opening when the JolntedPtaner

Feed the board at a continuous
even rate of speed until the cut is
made along the entire length of the board Any hesitation
or stopping could cause a "step" to be cut on the edge of the board which
would cause the board to ride up on the outfeed table resulting in a

Always feed WITH THE GRAIN whenever possible. If the nature of

ROTATION
HAND-OVER=HAND
Start with the left hand in the forward position. As the RIGHT hand
passes over the cutterhead,
remove the LEFT hand ,.CONTINUE
feeding while placing the LEFT hand behind the RIGHT Continue
feeding in this manner "hand over hand," until the entire length of
the board is cut Pressure should be applied over the cutterhead
and outfeed table
DO NOT FEED TOO FAST A slow steady rate of feed produces a
smooth accurate cut.. Feeding too fast causes a "rippled"
cut..

to guide the workpiece

,_WARNING:
NEVER PLACE THE HEEL OF YOUR HAND AT
THE END OF THE WORK PIECE WHEN FINISHING
A CUT.
THIS COULD RESULT tN YOUR HAND COMING IN CONTACT
WITH THE CUTTER CAUSING SERIOUS tNJURY.
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
