Figure 6-11. When all four edges of a piece of stock must be jointed, follow the pass sequence shown here. The final passes will remove the imperfections caused by cross-grain cutting.
When four edges of a piece of stock are to be jointed, the operation may be done as shown in Figure 6-11. The first and second cuts-across the grain-can be accomplished with single passes; the third and fourth cuts-with the grain-will remove the slight imperfections resulting from the first two cross-grain cuts.
