Hand Planers dont have infeed and outfeed?
I didnt really know how to title this but one thing I can't figure out.
With jointers you set the blade so that the height of the blade is equal to that of the outfeed table. Then you set the infeed table a bit lower depending on the depth of cut you want.
Even with power hand planers you can do this.
With a non power hand planer the blade is set to protrude above the bed. As the bed is not split you cannot set the blade "even with the outfeed".
Does this cause hand planers to be less accurate then a jointer?
