Setting Jointer Blades

You've heard me mention more than a few times how much of a hassle it is to change the blades in my jointer. The hardest part is setting the height of the blades to the exact level of the outfeed table.

I just came across this link, which took me to Fine Woodworking's website, where I watched a slick video on making a simple jig for setting jointer blades. I can't figure out how to post it here, so this link will have to suffice.

If you're fighting with your jointer blade set-up, this video will solve your problems. What a smart and simple solution!

Click here to see this video, it's well worth a few minutes of your time.
