Saw-Jointer Combination

Click to see larger view
Figure 6-3. The jointer can be used in combination with the MARK V table saw. Warning: Be sure the upper and lower saw guards are in place.

The Mark V was designed so that the table saw and the jointer can be used in combination (Figure 6-3). When the speed dial is set at "Saw-Joint," the power plant runs each tool at the proper speed. Warning: Be sure the upper and lower saw guards are mounted on the Mark V.

To square the edges, joint one edge of a board before beginning any sawing operation. This produces a smooth, straight edge to place against the rip fence and assures a straight, parallel cut. When you're ripping, cut the stock slightly oversize so that you can also joint the second edge.
