T&G Flooring
« on: September 19, 2016, 08:08:56 pm »
I made a T&G flooring jig to use on my Woodmaster Planer Yesterday. Today I ran 300 LF of Walnut and it came out good.
I had so may different lengths I had to do most of them one at a time. I have a friend that has the two routers set up for
the Woodmaster, so Thursday I am going to go run 400 LF of walnut in his set up. After I see how good that unit works,
I may buy one as I have a couple of jobs coming up for flooring.

I've done that very same thing before. Half a house full of walnut flooring. I just used two vertical fences and used feather boards to hold the boards against the fence. It's hard on your rubber feed rollers. And Johnson paste wax is your best friend.

 Will I am all done with this order. All total it came out to 464 LF of flooring. I put the back relief  on it to day and it sure
 looks good, now to call the customer and get paid. I sure hope he brings better lumber for the next round as the first
 lumber sure was bad, lost of bark and most looked like slab wood. Had to do a lot of trimming and came out with a lot of
 short runs. Hackberry I have couple of cans of Johnson past wax that I use on most of my tools, sure is good stuff.
