the Carpentry Way: The Coin Test                                                          

The Coin Test

I was at the shop with my wife the other day, where I was showing her the new Martin. She mentioned to me the coin test, which I have seen performed with a Hoffman jointer in the past. I had no coins on me but my wife had a quarter and a dime with her so she balanced those on the outfeed and unleashed the beast:

As you can see, just another way I'm getting nickle and dimed here folks. It would have been nice to have had a dozen coins to balance all over the machine and give a more dramatic show, but the result would have been the same I'm sure.

Thanks for dropping by. Comments always appreciated.
