Workin’ a bit more on the corrugated jointer

I worked on the corrugated jointer.  I decided to replace the blade to eliminated chatter and make for a better cut.  First, I needed to open the mouth just a tiny bit more to allow the thicker blade to fit through the mouth.

Surprise, surprise .. I found that the mouth was a bit crooked.  (Perhaps that’ll inspire a name for this plane – cock-eyed corgi?).

So I used my file to adjust and about a 1/32″ wider opening.

This was better.  But I had to do a little bit more work once the blade was in.

And now for nice shavings.
