Machine tuning weekend community class

This past weekend (Feb 2 & 3), we ran our first weekend long, Machine Setup, Maintenance, Repair and Tuning class here at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship. We packed a lot into 2 days and managed to cover most aspects of setting up and tuning the major machines found in most shops (table saw, bandsaw, jointer, and planer) as well as presented a few nice jigs for aiding in setups.

Below are a few pictures from the class.
