just ordered mine.

I need to scrouge up a few thousand for a BCT shopping spree. DJ-1 and Jointer maker pro are high on my tools desired list.

I'm curious what you're envisioning the JMP for, Eiji.

I get that, Roger. But he did say that he wants a JMP, and I was wondering what he'd do with it.

That was just a jab,
u didn't see the smirk on my face when I typed my response.

I would think now that Eiji, is sliding down the "hand tool slope",
that he be knocking out "hand-cut" dovetails on a JMP for his pieces)

Sorry - didn't get the jab, Roger. Typing is just such an un-nuanced medium.

I was wondering the same thing, though. How would you do dovetails on a solid 8/4 maple bench when the legs weigh 30 lbs each, using a JMP? Not to mention the top of the bench. I'm guessing that Eiji must be transitioning to smaller stuff...

There's a nice two page write-up about the KM-1 in the new issue of Woodsmith (Vol. 32, Issue 188).

There are some good tips on using it.

I just received the issue, and I would be happy to scan and post, but I'll have to check on copyright issues.
