Another way is to just use a false bottom. Pull that out and the lock is exposed. Just reach your hand back and release the lever lock with your fingers. That's the design Jeff Headley uses on his Win...

Thanks for your ideas. I may have messed the hook up by tilting the chisel toward the blade and I also probably used too much pressure. When done properly does the hook point inward the flat end of th...

Barry, You may be onto something about the thickness. I have been milling my inlay to 1/16 inch but I see in Steve's videos he cuts his 1/32 inch. Will try thinner inlay. Still think cutter is not ...

That's exactly what it looks like. The inlay does not catch on the back. My problem i think is in getting a proper burr. Any ideas on my other questions. To clarify one, does the burr's hook turn to t...

Thanks for the good input. I remembered that before I started taking apart my planer the planer jammed on the outfeed roller with a 12/4 piece of wood and twisted the outfeed roller out of alignment. ...

That assumption was wrong. Still tight even not tensioned on the top chain. Do you hook the spring from the back or the front to the arm on top and piece on the bottom? I have about 1/2 inch to stretc...
