I finished sharpening the knives today using my fool proof Tormek machine and jointer knives jig (I know the Tormek system is expensive but it works flawlessly) and set them into my my machine... works perfect and the snipes are gone. Set a straight edge on the jointed edge and I have absolutely no light showing through.
I set my magnetic jig on the outfeed table and brought the set screws up to the setting. I then locked the knives at a snug fit, (not a final locked down). That being done, I laid a metal ruler flat side down onto the outfeed table and when I turned the drum, the knives caught the rule... so I backed off the set screws and found the perfect setting. I'm extremely happy with the end result!
Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.
