Meanwhile the apres project shop tune-up continues
Perhaps the ghastliest chore, worse than resetting jointer knives, is the replacing or cleaning of the dust filters. Here's my system for filtering the cyclone exhaust (the exhaust enters the top of the box, and there's two exit ports underneath the filters). I took these filters outside and sprayed them down with compressed air. Just ugly. Then there's the various air filters which needed re-ordering or spraying down.
The jointer was also happy to see sharp knives installed.
So it's all ship shape, ready for the dining table project, except for the fatality of the table saw. Think the motor's gone. Maybe just the capacitors, but that's one difficult motor to get to and perhaps a sign to get an old piece of north american cast iron or something.
