How do you size a jointer?

What are the purposes of the infeed and outfeed tables? Which of the two is frequently adjusted?

How do you set the cutting knives?

How long do blades last?

Where should the knives be set, relative to the outfeed table?

What is critical for all knives projection in the cutter head?

How can you visual determine whether you are passing the wood over at the right speed?

Don't know what you mean by "how to size a jointer." The 2 most talked about are the 6" & 8". Some jointers you can adjust both the infeed and outfeed tables, on mine I can only adjust the infeed. Usually doens't matter anyways, once you get it adjusted you'll probably won't adjust it again. I have mine adjusted to take off about 1/45" and haven't adjusted my table in years. How long blades last depends on your carefulness and usage. I'm a moderate woodworker and haven't bought blades in a few years. I set my blades to be .003" above the outfeed table. If you get "ripples" in your wood you are feeding too fast. Ideally the wood should come out smooth.
